Admin —  January 13, 2017

This Sunday we will be meeting for our family service at 10.30am at The Littlehampton Academy, continuing our new series “Under Construction: God is Building Here” the topic this week is ‘Be God First’.

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.
