This Sunday

Luke Knight —  August 19, 2016

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

The Chapel will be available for parents with babies and toddlers this week.

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.

The Arun Community Church magazine for July – August is available on Sunday, and you can also view it online click here

Vision Sunday and Hog Roast

Luke Knight —  August 19, 2016

This year’s Vision Day is on Sunday 18th September and will be 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. Tickets for the Hog Roast will be on sale Sunday 4th September in the Atrium, and the office at the Wickbourne Centre 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 Flix Gillett, or if you’d like to buy an extra ticket for someone, also please contact Flix at
