Harvest Thanksgiving on 3rd October

Thank you to everyone who generously contributed gifts for the Chichester Food Bank


We were delighted to be able finally to hold a real welcome service and party for Rev Sarah on the year’s anniversary of her Licensing. The service was a joyful sung evening service at West Dean Church and afterwards we were generously hosted by the Edward James Foundation who provided delicious refreshments in their Gardens cafe.


As we look forward (hopefully) to a return to congregational singing during our services, Rev Sarah would like to meet with anyone interested in assisting with providing musical accompaniment and/or planning the hymns and music to assist our worship. If you would like to help shape our music, hymns and songs going forward, please contact Rev Sarah on

The organ in Singleton Church is in need of some good old TLC. Could you be part of a group looking at possible grants to restore this wonderful instrument to its former glory, and to liaise with the Diocesan Organ advisor and the Diocese as to the best way forward?
If you are interested please speak to me, or email Rev Sarah on
