Our condolences to Jim & Clare McKnight and family, as Jim’s Mum died this week. We pray for them especially at this time.

The following people have asked to become committed members of Arun Community Church:


Hi everyone! We are Toby & Tasha and we would love to become members of Arun. I (Toby) have been part of Arun for 14 years after moving with my family from North London in 2001. Tasha started coming along to church 6 years ago and became a Christian at Soul Survivor in 2009.

Last year we both graduated from university, Tasha attended Goldsmiths where she studied Sociology and I was at London South Bank studying Computing. Originally when we finished we wanted to stay in London and pursue our lives there, but after moving back we realised the South Coast is the place for us!

I’m currently working as a Finance Assistant at Fittleworth Medical and Tasha is a Branch Administrator at a recruitment agency called Adecco.

We’re FINALLY getting married at the end of May this year, which is exciting after being engaged for 2 years (together for 6!).

We love Arun as a church and we can’t wait to see what God has in store for us here and are completely open to whatever it may be!
