We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who made our wedding last Saturday possible. We feel so blessed to have you all in our lives. 

The ceremony taken by Becca was just perfect, along with the talk from Pippa & Andy Harsant and the lovely prayers from them with David Thatcher. 

We very much feel God in the centre of our marriage and ourselves – there is no greater feeling! 

Also, a big thank you to everyone involved in the planning, set up, band, sound and tidy up. We are overwhelmed by your generosity! And of course to everyone who came and shared the start of our new journey together as husband and wife, and everyone who gave cards & gifts.  

We feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful church, and look forward to growing as husband & wife along with our little Freddie in the Church for the rest of our days. 

Thank you ACC. Bless you all.

 

We welcome the following people into membership of the Church here:

Hey guys, I’m Nathan Gibbs and I’m 16 years old. I have lived in Littlehampton for most of my life (around 15 years) and have been a Christian for as long as I can remember. However, I truly came to know the love of God when I joined ACC in the summer of 2013. Last year, on the 30th of March, I was baptised along with 5 other people. It was the best day of my life! I also attended Big Church Day Out and Soul Survivor that year, which blew my mind! By coming to ACC, I joined a family of people who love and care about me, and that’s why I want to become a member of the Church.

Hi, I’m Ross Ledger and I am 53. I was born and brought up in Sunbury-on-Thames and became a Christian when I was 16, baptised at 18 in Ascot and filled with the Holy Spirit when I was 19.

Since then my journey has led me via Farnborough in Hampshire, Cranleigh in Surrey and Horsham in West Sussex. I never really had any plans to move to Littlehampton, however in 2013 through a combination of events, relationships and dreams it became clear that this was somewhere I was meant to be, which finally led me to the ACC church walk on Littlehampton beach in December 2013. I was then invited to Alpha.

I spent quite a few days travelling to and from Littlehampton looking for houses, going to Alpha and the Sunday meetings. I finally bought a house, but beforehand a visiting Danish Pastor said “You need more people in Wick”, and inside I was saying “Nope, I’m moving to Rustington!”. It will come as no surprise to those who know me that God’s humour is often directed at me so when I saw my address read “Wick Littlehampton” I could almost hear the laughter.

I eventually moved in on one of the hottest days of last year in June. Since then some amazing things have happened, here at last I have an opportunity to be in a community and call it ‘home’. Therefore I wish to formalise my commitment to the work here by asking to become a member of Arun Community Church. I am looking forward to being able to provide and to serve, to drink a lot of coffee, eat cake, and laugh, to be taught and to be a part of this fantastic fellowship. Oh, by the way it’s white coffee with one sugar, or a Latte!
