Please bring your own lunch. Mission and Vocation Speaker: Fr Damian Feeney SSC This day will explore the relationship between our baptismal calling as Christians and our shared call to mission. How might this be best understood? How does that work out in the lives of individuals and communities? Fr. Damian Feeney has been Vicar of Holy Trinity, Ettingshall (Wolverhampton) since 2015. He combines this with his role as Catholic Missioner to the Diocese of Lichfield. Prior to 2015 he was Vice-Principal and Charles Marriott Director of Pastoral Studies at St Stephen’s House, Oxford, and an associate member of the University of Oxford Faculty of Theology. Prior to 2009 he was a parish priest and missioner in the Diocese of Blackburn and was a member of the working party which produced the original Mission-shaped Church report. He is a member of the Leading your Church into Growth team and the College of Evangelists, having initiated Eucharistic church plants in Harrogate and Preston; he is also a member of the Society of the Holy Cross, and of the General Synod. He is married to Fiona, a church primary school head teacher, and they have three grown up children.

Can you help?


The wardens and our clergy have made some revisions to the service pattern for the ensuing months of our interregnum. There are hard copies available in church but please check our website for any last minute changes. We ask for your support and patience as we settle into a new routine although there are no major changes.

Chichester Cathedral Friends are celebrating 80 years since their foundation. Please pick up a leaflet by the door for information and how we can support our Mother church.

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

Plastic milk bottle tops
Please continue to save your plastic milk bottle tops and drop them in the bin in church (washed!) They raise funds for the Chestnut Tree Children's Hospice resources. It is worth noting that these tops cannot be recycled in your wheelie bin.
