whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness,
and was tempted as we are, yet without sin:
give us grace to discipline ourselves
in obedience to your Spirit;
and, as you know our weakness,
so may we know your power to save;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
you have renewed us with the living bread from heaven;
by it you nourish our faith, increase our hope,
and strengthen our love:
teach us always to hunger for him
who is the true and living bread,
and enable us to live by every word
that proceeds from out of your mouth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Visit by the Bishop of Chelmsford to our Deanery

deanery synod on 3 March at St Mary’s Church, Felpham from 7.30pm till approx 9pm.
In view of the importance of this theme, the synod is open to ALL members of our
church communities, not just the deanery synod reps. Please come to join us for this
particularly appropriate topic in Lent.

Three young people have so far indicated that they are interested in the possibility of

confirmation, please speak with Christine, one of our Honorary Assistant Priests or
myself as to what is entailed. ZA
WAFFLE - A thank you to everyone who came to hear Rita Godfrey talk on
Wednesday 11 February about "Recipes from an Unknown Kitchen." It was a
tremendous evening and so well attended, and Rita has written to say how much she
enjoyed being with us. We meet again on Wednesday 18 March at 7.30pm in the Church
Hall when Janis Saunders will lead us in practical flower arranging, with everyone taking
their arrangements home. Please bring your own cutters or scissors if possible. £2.00 to
include all materials.
Please does anyone know where the small folding bookstand from Church is? This is
used by Marjorie Warnes at the Eucharist and has been missing for several weeks now!
Thanks to your gifts for our stalls and many donations, the splendid sum of £567.36
was raised to support the work of The Children’s Society.
We do appreciate your generous support to help children at risk in our society.
Thank you on behalf of the children and the local committee.
Thank you for the many donations to the Worthing Churches Homeless Project. The response
has been marvellous. Many thanks again.
Please note: For those enquiring, Terry Blake has moved back to Kent.
