Fishbourne Centre, in Chichester on Saturday 2 October from 7 -11pm
A specially selected group of 10 Chichester Scouts and Explorers are well on their way to raising the £20,000 needed to attend the 22ND World Scout Jamboree in Sweden next summer. Through months of hard work and fundraising they have already raised £11,000 but still need to raise a further £9000 in order to fund their trip and help pay for scouts from poorer countries to attend.

Their next big fundraising event is HOT! HOT!

The evening includes live music from three top local bands, featuring a mix of jazz, swing and blues, rock, soul and latin music.

Tickets for the event are only £8 if bought in advance, £10 on the door, and include a chilli supper. Tickets are available from Annabel Smith (Tel: 575960) or Ackerman Music, 42 West Street, Chichester.

Sunday 26th September

The entire aspect of Jesus’ ministry was to heal. To reconcile humanity to God by overcoming the separation caused by human sin was achieved at Calvary on Good Friday.

One third of the Gospel stories about Jesus involve his other acts of healing. The removal of disease was another sign of the establishment of the Kingdom of God.Healing services have often been separated from “normal” Sunday Worship. But Sunday Worship with its confession, listening to God’s word and Holy Communion are all on the same track of making us whole as a community and as individuals.

So on  as part of our “normal” Sunday Worship, there will be an opportunity for those who wish to do so to be prayed for during the service. This will take place in the Memorial Chapel at St Mary’s during Administration of Communion and so will not impact on the “normal” Sunday Service.

Your views on this will be sought afterwards in a questionnaire to be given or sent to you to determine whether this is the best way to make available this ministry of wholeness.

See the forthcoming Sept Lavant Magazine and listen to the semon preached on 22 Aug which is on the Church Website for further details. The Rector

Harvest Supper on Sat 9th October
The Harvest Appeal starts with a collecting container at the back of the church during September.  The appeal this year is in aid of New Growth Ministries, a Christian charity working in Zimbabwe.

The Harvest Supper on Saturday 9th October is in St Nicholas' Church 6.45 for 7.00pm Tickets for the supper are now available from Cynthia Blades and Hilary Caffyn, adults £6 and children under 12 £4. Soft drinks will be available but bring your own if you wish for something a little stronger.

Saturday 12th September
The Sponsored Bike Ride, or Walk if you prefer, will be on Saturday 12th September, and we’re looking for as many people to take part, and get sponsors, as possible. It’s great fun, but if the thought of so much activity is daunting, then you can help by manning St Mary’s for part of the day, and by sponsoring those taking part.
