I hope that most members of the congregation are aware that we are working towards building a new Parish Room on the south side of the Church, between the Church and the Vicarage gate. The rooms will include much needed facilities including a Kitchen and some Lavatories. Also a large room in which meetings can be held and coffee and other refreshments served.
But what about the Money!!!
Well we have already had two highly successful concerts in St Mary's The first one back in June from a choir called Off Centre and last month a marvellous evening of music from Alex Palmer and friends. Between these two events alone over £1ooo has been raised, and more to come as much of the donated money was Gift Aided ( how sensible!) We have received money from other initiatives, 'buy a brick' and donationtions from other events organised in the Village have also been very successful.
Our next event on Sunday 27th of November is an afternoon of Advent Wreath making, (£10 per wreath) with tea. We provide the raw materials, so that you can come along and enjoy putting your wreath together with your family and friends. At the end of the afternoon Fr Stephen will bless the wreaths and we shall all enjoy a traditional Sidlesham Afternoon Tea. Please sign the sheet at the back of the Church if you would like to come, as we need numbers for tea and materials. See you there!!
