This Sunday

Admin —  November 25, 2015

This Sunday we will be meeting for our family service with baptisms at 10.30am at The Littlehampton Academy. A special welcome to the family and friends of Sam Hills, Hannah Stanaway, Daisy Dineen, Laura McGarva, Karen Goff and Jodie Wigley, who will be getting baptised.

Welcome also to the family and friends of Tania & Ian Reynolds for their son Rory‘s dedication, and the friends and family of Katie & Jon Roobottom for their daughter Ember‘s dedication.

The Chapel will be open for parents with babies and toddlers.

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.

Join us in the build up to Christmas as we take time out to remember what it’s all about. ‘Advent’ means to prepare, so we are taking this opportunity to prepare our hearts with a devotional series called ‘Jesus Is The Coming King’. To sign up for the daily emails please click here. The devotionals will also be shared on Facebook.
