It is that time of the year again when we should be oiling our bikes and searching in the cupboard for our walking shoes. Saturday, 10th September is Sponsored Bike Ride Day, now known as Ride and Stride, when participants walk or cycle around local churches raising money for our own church and for the Sussex Historic Churches Trust which supports church building works throughout the diocese. It is a good opportunity to visit churches which are not always accessible to the public, apart from times of worship. This is a diocesan event so one can travel a distance or remain in Chichester where there are many churches within a relatively small area which makes it ideal to walk around, especially if cycling is a distant memory. If too much physical activity is not for you these days then we are always looking for sponsors to support the energetic and as we will keep St Mary's open we will need people willing to sit in the church for an hour or so during the day. The money raised is split equally as mentioned above. There will be the sponsor forms available in the church nearer the time.
