Alpha Course 2019

Got questions about life? Try Alpha

alphafbWhat’s the Alpha Course?

It’s a practical introduction to the Christian faith, that is based around sharing a meal together (which can be breakfast, lunch or supper, whatever time suits those who wish to do the course). We then watch a presentation and discuss some of the questions raised. The course lasts for about 12 weeks and covers topics like ‘Who is Jesus?’ ‘Why and how do I pray?’ ‘Why and how should I read the Bible?’

So if you would like to come to our introductory session ‘Is there more to life than this?’ on Friday 25th January at 7pm, when a meal will be served at The Vicarage, then please email Marion at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Christmas Tree Festival 2018

Christmas Tree Festival 9th-16th December

Many of you will remember the last Christmas Tree Festivals held in 2015 which was so successful in raising funds to help Chestnut Tree Children’s Hospice and our Church. From Saturday 9th to Sunday 16th December 2018, the Church will once again be filled with beautifully decorated and lit Christmas trees and, this year, our chosen charity partner is The Sussex Snowdrop Trust, a unique charity providing 'Nursing Care at Home' for local children who have a life-threatening illness or may be terminally ill.  The money raised will be divided between The Sussex Snowdrop Trust and St Peter ad Vincula Church. 

The Festival will be launched at the Time for God service at 10.30am on Sunday 9th December and will conclude with a Carol Concert on Sunday 16th December at 5pm.  More detail in poster below.

Nativity Service 2016

Christmas Eve Nativity Service - This year, the 5pm service on 24 December 2016 took the form of a playlet interspersed with songs and carols as we journeyed with Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem for the birth of the Christ Child. Children were encouraged to dress up as either Shepherds, Angels or Kings to join with the 'cast' and they did not disappoint.  The church was bursting at the seams with standing room only at the back.  This was a very special and enjoyable service.

Time For God Pet Service 11 September 2016

Time For God Pet Service

Took Place Sunday 11th September 2016 10.30am

Normally I go for a long walk on a Sunday morning, but this Sunday my owner took me to St Peter’s Church! I met other dogs plus two cats (they were in baskets - shame!) I also met some songbirds in a cage which were very chatty, but I didn’t really understand what they were saying! We listened to the people singing and the Vicar talking about the importance of pets to humans and the way they help many people come to terms with difficult circumstances in their lives. There were lots of things for the humans to do. The little ones had their faces painted expertly - a few of them looked like me! I had treats out in the sunshine while the humans had their drink and cake. Some were wearing the tee shirts that they had decorated earlier - it was great fun and all of us dogs were told there might be another one next year!

I understand there is another Time For God Service on 9th October, I’m not invited … but all the rest of the family are! I heard the Vicar saying it’s going to be about God’s Amazing Love for everyone, with lots of activities and cake again!
