Congratulations to Georgie West who is getting married to Chris Cox on Saturday 10th August.

Ben and Jo Gisbey are asking to become committed members of ACC.  Jo writes:

Ben grew up as part of Arun Community Church and I joined after moving down from Scotland 14 years ago.  We got married in 2004 and then moved up to London for Ben’s work.  We loved living in London and were actively involved in Hillsong Church there. Although Ben still works in London, we moved back to Rustington at the end of last summer to be near family, friends, and the beach and we knew God’s hand in every step of the move.  We have been back at Arun for one year now and love being part of such a wonderful community of people. We have a beautiful 5 year old girl, Isobel, and a delightful 3 year old boy, Elliot. We are excited to see our children grow up here and as a family want to play our part in all that God has for us as a church and as a community.

A celebration of Pip Lear’s life is being held at The Wickbourne Centre, on Tuesday 13 August at 3.30pm, followed by light refreshments.  All will be welcome to join us.  There will be family flowers only, but donations to Ashton Care Homes (who owned and ran the lovely nursing home where Pip spent his final two months), and/or Hurstwood Park League of Friends, which is the Neurological Centre at Haywards Heath (who cared for and treated Pip so amazingly for 3½/4 months) can be sent to H D Tribe, Funeral Directors, 63 Sea Lane, Rustington. Pip’s life was a life worth celebrating and that is what he would want us to be doing. His desire has always been that we would not wear black.  It’s a celebration.  Margaret Lear
