RIDE AND STRIDE: For Sussex Churches. This annual Ride and Stride sponsored event (helping to preserve Sussex Churches) takes place on Saturday, September 12 between 9am and 5pm and, as in many other churches throughout Sussex, Kingston Church will be open throughout the day to greet all visitors. You can cycle, walk or run to raise money via sponsorship, half of which goes to Kingston Church and the other half to the Sussex Historic Churches Trust, which gives grants to churches throughout Sussex for essential repairs and restoration. Anybody can join in for whatever distance suits you and all participants will be very welcome. For more information, see leaflets in Kingston Church (always open all day every day) and/or telephone Nick or Jan Darby (01273 473770).
