ST MARY’S: This Sunday, as the Revd Beth and Ian McCleave are on their honeymoon, the Revd Lucy Hollingsworth will be leading our Family Service at 10am. The theme of the day is forgiveness. It is a shorter informal service, suitable for all ages and new faces are always welcome. We are very lucky that the Archdeacon of Brighton and Lewes, the Ven Martin Lloyd-Jones will be leading our Eucharist Service at 6.30pm and at 8am the Holy Communion service will be led by Revd Martin Brown. Mostly Mums meets on Tuesday 9.30am to 11am for toddlers and their parents and carers. Time to explore the church, make some mess and enjoy songs and prayers (with the help of some bubbles). As we resume the usual pattern of meetings after the summer break, do keep an eye on our website for details of what’s going on. St Mary’s has a great community with so much going on, from Men’s Club and Mother’s Union to Mostly Mums, the choir and art groups.

SINGALONG: Returns on September 14. All are welcome, men and women of any age. We are a very happy group and sing a wide variety of songs.
