CHURCH NEWS: We would like to thank Reverend Colin Pritchard for a lovely Harvest Thanksgiving service and such an inspiring sermon. It made us all think how many people we are dependent upon worldwide for our basic food needs. All gifts have been delivered to Eastbourne Food Bank, a charity we support throughout the year, not just at Harvest Time.

This week The Reverend Neville Manning will lead Holy Communion (BCP) at 10.30am. It is also Animal Welfare Sunday which is recognised by the Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals. Well behaved pets will be welcomed at the service. Refreshments (for all) served in the church afterwards.
