Thank you to the Findon School Choir for their beautiful singing

at our service of Worthing & Praise on 5th March.

This was much enjoyed by the congregation, many of whom

stayed after the service for coffee and a chat.

Sue Harris from Turning Tides, which provides homeless support services in West Sussex, gave a thought-provoking talk.

The 'First Sunday of the Month' service at Findon 

is always relaxed and informal, with children especially welcome.

Coffee and biscuits are served after the service- a great time

to get to know everyone better.

Our next service of Worship & Praise is on Palm Sunday, 2nd April.

Enjoy bacon butties in the Rectory from 9am,

then walk with donkeys to the church.

Lent 2023

This year, as a change to our usual offering, there will be a service of Compline each Wednesday evening. The next one will take place at Findon Church on 22nd March at 7.30pm. Compline is a short but very beautiful service of Night Prayer; it will contain a brief reflection. There is no commitment and no sign-up sheets. Do join us when you can as part of your Lenten preparations.

Helena is currently away on her 3 month sabbatical in Australia. Please continue to contact the Church Office as normal. On the days Wendy is not in the office Colin will pick up messages and reply to enquiries. Please be aware that Colin only works in the Parish part-time and lives in Rustington, so you may not get as quick a reply as when Helena is living at the Rectory.
