The third Sunday of November brings us to Matins as our 10 o'clock service.The New Testament reading, from St Mark's Gospel, tells of the coming of the end of time, with warfare and earthquakes predicted, which in the light of the events of the last week seemed very relevant, In his Sermon Father Stephen told us about his grandmother, who disliked changes such as motor cars and much else in the modern world. Many of us find change frightening, and many of our readings in Advent are rather grim, but we look beyond it to the promise of Christmas. We must fix our sights on this hope in the face of suffering and remember that nothing can separate us from God's Love.


The Christmas Fair will be held on Saturday 5th December in the Church Hall 2pm to 4 pm please come along!

In the North Transept there is a display of poppies made by the Sunday School. Each poppy has the name of a person from the War Memorial honouring those from Sidlesham who gave their lives for our freedom.
