The annual Carols by Candlelight will take place on Christmas Eve at 4.30pm
The church flower team will have performed its usual magic and the church will be full of colour and glowing candles. This is a very special service: we will hear of how the events of that first ever Christmas unfolded, there will be joyful carol singing and the children will take the figures to the crib. Afterwards everyone is invited to mulled wine and mince pies in the Meeting Room. Don’t forget to bring a torch to light your way to and from the church
On Christmas Day there will be Holy Communion (BCP) at 08.00
On Sunday 31st December 2023 Joint Parishes Eucharist with Fishbourne at 09:30
Collection for homeless
At this time of year we remember those who have no homes. Please can we do this again this year? We invite you to donate items of warm clothing, hats, gloves, socks and scarfs, which we will deliver to Stonepillow in time for Christmas. Small treats such as chocolate are welcome, too. Donations can be brought to the services where there will be a box to place them in or alternatively contact a church member.
An evening of festive singing with Chi Choir
The choir practices each week in the Meeting Room so please come along and support them at their fund-raising event on Monday 18th December at 6.30pm in the church. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served in St Mary’s Meeting Room afterwards.
Entrance is free with donations going to PASCO, a local charity that supports children and young people aged 0-25 with disabilities and their families in the Chichester and Arun districts.
