 Can You Help ?
A Dodgy Ticker - our Victorian church clock is in desperate need of repair and a facelift.
We have launched an appeal to raise £5,367.00 to replace the motor so that we can reactivate the chiming mechanism and also regild the clock face. Please can you help by donating to our fund by either following the links on our website OR leaving a donation with Mrs Claire George, PCC Secretary, at The Street House, The Street, Bolney. If you are a taxpayer and able to Gift Aid your donation this will be an enormous help.

Please help by being vigilant
Some churches in the Diocese have experienced recent break-ins. If you see anything untoward in or around church,
please report it to the police and notify the churchwardens.

Family Support Work Basket - for donations of non-perishable groceries.
Your contributions are gratefully received for distribution around the diocese for those less fortunate than ourselves. They are collected on a regular basis. Pasta, tinned goods, cereals and toiletries are very welcome.
