Priest in Charge’s message

2020 will be an exciting year for us here in Sullington & Thakeham with Warminghurst parishes. Sullington are preparing for their ever popular, bi-annual Flower Festival in June and Thakeham are preparing to begin refurbishing and building works at the end of May. Details on the websites.

Our verse for the year
“Call to me and I will answer you. Seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:12-13

In 2020 we will be learning more about prayer; talking to God, listening to God and spending time in God’s presence. Prayer is our lifeline, our communication with God. When we spend time getting to know a good friend, we are investing in the relationship and showing how we value the person. God shows us how much we are loved and valued each day, and this year we are all learning to show God how much we value that divine love.

Check out www.southdownsawakening.com a week of prayer-walking the South Downs culminating in a celebration at Chanctonbury Ring on Saturday 18th July. Both parishes will be participating in a variety of ways, why not join in?

If you are ‘just looking’ we would love to meet you. Come and join in one of our Sunday services (see the websites for details), explore our other regular activities like Men’s Breakfast, Knit and Stitch, Church in the Pub or one of the home groups – see the websites for details.
