On the 27th February Jo Williams will be taking part in the Littlehampton Sponsored Sleepout 2016 organised by Worthing Churches Homeless Projects. “I will be sleeping in my very own put-together cardboard shelter for the night – with lots of warm layers, to raise money and help those in our community in their recovery out of homelessness to a brighter future. If you would like to show your support, please go to Homeless sleepout where you can leave a donation. Thank you.” Jo Williams

We welcome Jessica Autumns into membership of the church:
image“Hey, my name is Jessica Autumns, most people call me Jessie. I live in Yapton with my mum and my cat Mittens and work full time as a medical receptionist. I was brought up in a Christian family and Arun Community Church was where I first started to explore my faith 11 years ago, after moving to Littlehampton from the North, and what amazing journey it has been.

“Throughout the years I have been part of the Yapton Free Church but feel that God has called me back to Arun since doing the Alpha Course last year with my best friend Matt Pollard! I really feel that now is a great time to commit to one church and serve God. I like singing, allotments and children’s and youth work. I am looking forward to start studying Youth Work this September and for what God brings this year! My pockets are full of faith!” 

Rosie Jupp & Mikey Vickery-Brown are collecting glass jars for their wedding this June. If you have any jars that you can donate, please get in touch with Rosie or Mikey.
