TRINITY AT SOUTHOVER: And St John sub Castro. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the collections over Christmas. We were able to send the Tear Fund refugee appeal and Off the Fence helping the homeless in Brighton £1,245 each. We have heard back from Romania that the 300 plus shoe boxes were handed out to poor rural communities and schools, both surprising and giving great joy to the children. Our next Alpha Course runs on Thursdays from February 25 for nine weeks: a great opportunity to explore the basics of the Christian faith and discuss the big questions of life in an informal, relaxed setting. We start with a meal followed by a talk and then a discussion. Please contact the Rector Steve Daughtery on 01273472018. May we remind you we run Southover Counselling Service, a professional service available to everyone irrespective of belief or ability to pay the full cost.
