CHURCH NEWS: Just to catch up, we celebrated a lovely Holy Communion service as a United Benefice at the beautiful Downland church of St Michael the Archangel in Litlington on Sunday January 31. Thank you all for your hospitality and delicious refreshments. On Sunday February 7 we remembered the fallen airmen who lost their lives on Folkington Hill in 1945.

This Sunday will be the first Sunday in Lent and The Reverend Roger Dalling will lead Mattins at 10.30am. Do join us for prayer, friendship and refreshments. There will not be a service at St Peter’s on Ash Wednesday but there will be services at both Alfriston in the morning and Litlington in the evening. God bless all.
