HISTORY STUDY GROUP: Tonight (Friday) at 7.45pm in the village hall, John Bleach will be talking about The Early Church and Parish in and Around Malling, Ringmer and Lewes. Malling is one of the earliest known Christian sites in our area of mid-Sussex; Lewes is one of a small handful of multi-parish settlements in 12th century Sussex. We will investigate both of these notable situations, considering possible origins and growth of the local church, and suggest how and when the church in Ringmer appears and develops within the medieval religious landscape.
ST MARY’S: The new Friday Group has got off to an excellent start with a dozen young people enjoying fun and games. The group is designed for children in yrs 5 and 6 and meets tonight (Friday) from 6.30pm to 8pm and again on Friday June 9. The next Taize service takes place on Sunday at 6.30pm. The theme is Ascension and celebrated through readings, quiet music and praying in silence. On Friday June 2 from 2pm to 7pm and Saturday June 3 from 10am to 4pm, the church will be open and for a new Discover Prayer event. You are invited to pop in at any time and stay for as long as you wish. There will be different prayer spaces to explore how you might pray, or think about God and the world. Do take the opportunity to come and share some time with God. There will be interactive and contemplative prayers so plenty of ideas to suit everyone.
