The chaps will be meeting on Thursday 4th September at The Lamb in Rustington for a ‘farewell to summer’ social evening from 7.30pm until the last man leaves. The Lamb serves bar food if you want to eat, and if it’s a warm evening (in September?) you’ll probably find us in the garden. If you’re new to Arun or you’ve been coming for years, come and join us – all welcome. Please see Flix Gillett, Steve Case and Rich Lush.
The next Alpha Course starts on Monday 22nd September, 7pm at the Wickbourne Centre. If you would like to be part of this, or you would like to bring someone along, please see David Thatcher or leave your details at Info Point/Church Office. For the dates click here. Flyers with more details are available at Info Point or from the Church Office.
Desserts: We urgently need a capable person to take on the key role of Dessert Coordinator. If this is an area where you feel you could serve the Church, please see David as soon as possible, or contact the Office.
Rustington Playcentre is looking for someone (qualified or unqualified and willing to train for qualification) to join their team. For more details and to download an application pack, click here
The next Momentum men’s event is breakfast at the Littlehampton Wetherspoons in Surrey Street on Saturday 20th September at 8.30am. Breakfasts are available from £2 upwards. No need to RSVP, just turn up.
The Vision Day is on Sunday 14th September and will be a time of looking back over the last year, and looking forward to where we feel God is leading us in the next 12 months.
We plan to follow the morning meeting with a shared Hog Roast Lunch, and we’re inviting Scott the Ice Cream Van man back again. Tickets for the Hog Roast will be on sale from this Sunday onwards in the Atrium, and the Church Office during the week. The cost is £4 per person – £2 for under 12s. There will be a vegetarian option – please mention this when you buy your ticket for catering purposes.
We’d hate anyone to miss out, so if you can’t afford a ticket, please see Sue Moss, or if you’d like to buy an extra ticket for someone, please have a word with Sue, who will be selling tickets on Sunday. Or just call the Office.
Over the summer the Beach Hut team have been taking some time to reflect upon the event and seeking to align ourselves with all that God has been speaking to us about. We’re going back to a place of real intimacy in seeking God and His heart for the world, our communities and each of our lives.
So in this new chapter of time set aside for worshiping and listening to Him, we will now be meeting in the Wickbourne Centre on the first Sunday of every month.
Before we open this up to other churches from October, we invite all at ACC to join us on Sunday 7th September from 7 – 8pm to worship and seek God. Refresh will be open beforehand for coffee and catch-up! We are excited for all that God has in store!
We have had the following message from Macaulay Larbey, who has just had his first week at the Danish Bible School:
Hi church, the first couple of days were a real struggle, settling in now and getting to know people. This week has been all about introductions to the school etc. I know God is going to do amazing things with this time, so i just want to say a massive thank you for all your love and support. PS Please pray I can stop smoking and settle in more!
Many of our young have had their GCSE and A Level exam results this, and last week. Well done for all your hard work – time to relax now!
The following people celebrate their birthday this week: Laura Gibb, Juliette Nicholson (50), Wendy Groussin, Abi Smith, Hope Leggatt and Sarah Misson. Happy birthday everyone!
