  News & Information



Churches Together Good Friday Walk of Witness:Meet at Trinity Methodist Church at 10.30am to walk to the High Street for the open-air service at 11am.
 
Sunrise Service: This year we are having an outdoor sunrise service on Easter morning at 7am(!) on the terrace at East Court. It will be a half-hour service of praise as we recall the mind-blowing discovery of the empty tomb early on that first Easter morning. Do set your alarms and come along (please note this is instead of the 8am communion that day but there will be communion at 6pm). 

Youth & Children’s Groups start back again next weekend.

Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM): Come and join our annual meeting as a church where we look back and give thanks to God for the previous year, look forward with expectation for the coming year, and hear about some of the future plans. Tuesday 30 April at 8-9:30pm in church.

Bible by the Beach: Please note there is no 6pm service on Sunday 6 May because sundaysix  is going on the road once again to join the Bible by the Beach experience for the Evening Celebration and Concert at The Congress Theatre in Eastbourne. The coach will leave the church car park at 4:30pm.

Church lunch dates for next term: 12 May, 2 June & 30 June (summer BBQ).

Team Appointment 2019/20: The PCC are keen to appoint a new member of the staff team this summer. This might be either for the role Ministry Apprentice (similar to previous years), or with many opportunities for children’s work both at church and in schools, there is the option of any new appointment taking the shape of a part-time Children & Families Minister instead. If you know anyone who might be interested in either of these roles, please encourage them to get in touch for a Job Description.

Helping the homeless 2019: Thank you so much to the wonderful volunteers who have helped with the street collection for the homeless previously. If you are able to help with this year’s collection on Saturday 29 June at 10-11am, or if you are interested in taking part in the Sleep Out overnight on Saturday 29 June, then please contact Sheila Drury. All money raised goes to Crawley Open House, Turning Tides and The Easter Project. Thank you.

Update on Crawley Open House: WSCC funding will cease from September 2019 but COH is not going to close, so maybe you could help by joining the Be 1 in 1000group giving £10/month. If you are interested please go to www.crawleyopenhouse.co.ukor call 01293 447702

COH is part of a consortium of affected charities which has been lobbying and meeting key people at WSCC. It is focusing on the fact that any cut would be so short -sighted, and actually cost so much more down the line in terms of police activity, hospital admissions, and mental health team involvement.

Thank you

Chris and the team for a delicious lunch last Sunday.

The Connections team for our Easter Connections Praise.

To the amazing Holiday Club team for the excellent mornings this week.

Prayer Diary

 

Thursday This evening we remember the events of the Last Supper, as we share in an informal Communion service together. Despite the busyness of this week, let us take time to reflect on all that Jesus' death means for us.

Friday Pray that the Walk of Witness behind the Cross, through the town, culminating in the open-air service in the High Street, may touch people's hearts and encourage them to find out more about the meaning of Good Friday.

Saturday Today let us pray for all our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who face rejection, violence, imprisonment and even death for the sake of Christ and the Gospel. May they draw courage from Jesus' example.

Sunday Hallelujah! He is risen! Let us rejoice in this life-changing truth through the Easter Sunrise Service at East Court, the All Age celebration, and the Easter Reflection in the evening, as well as in all we do throughout the day! 

Monday Pray for our neighbourhood - for East Grinstead, the local villages and communities, for homes, businesses and shops; that as we go about our daily lives we may reflect God's light and share his love.
 
Tuesday As term starts again today for most, pray for all our local primary and secondary schools, nurseries and pre-schools; for all teachers, support staff and Governors, and especially for each child with individual needs. 

Wednesday With medical services stretched, pray for our local surgeries, dentists, carers, care homes and hospitals, especially QVH and St Catherine's Hospice as they provide specific and specialised care for patients.
 
Thursday Pray for those who use the Village Hall for various events and activities, that it will help to bring the community together;  and for the Scout, Cub, Guide and Brownie packs as they meet in various locations.
 
Friday Pray for all who use the recreational facilities - the Kings Centre, gyms, sports centres, playgrounds, Chequer Mead Theatre, the Cinema, as well as cafes and restaurants; that they will benefit in body, mind and spirit.
 
Saturday Thank God for the small but dedicated team of Street Pastors, as they patrol our town on Saturday evenings and occasional Friday afternoons; that God will guide and protect all their plans, encounters and conversations.
 
Sunday 28th April Pray for all the churches of different denominations in our area, for their ministers, leaders and members, and for the various initiatives they support - the Food Bank, CAP, Care, Crawley Open House, and others.
