this sunday

Luke Knight —  June 24, 2016

This Sunday we will be meeting for our family service at 10.30am at The Littlehampton Academy, our topic is ‘Faith & Words’.

It is ACCelerate Sunday, so if you have children aged 2½ to Year 6 there’s Kickstart Cove and Mini Kickstart in the Drama Studios. If you’re Year 7 to 9 there’s Ignite at 11am in the Chapel.

The Chapel is not available for parents with babies and toddlers this week, but a playpen is situated in the Main Hall to the right of the stage.

Please be aware that each Sunday, as we meet in a public building, Arun Community Church cannot accept responsibility for your children’s safety during, before or after the meeting apart from during supervised activities. Pack down can also be particularly hazardous with the removal of heavy equipment. Please do not allow your children up onto the balcony level in the Atrium as this is out of bounds. Thank you.
