Sunday 1 May, 10am – All Age Worship – all welcome. Refreshments to follow, and then join us for a family walk – up to one hour.
Our All Age Worship is a Communion Service with a simpler format more accessible for children, with opportunities for them to take part in music, prayers and readings, and learn about our Christian faith. You are welcome to join us, whatever your age.
Little Fishes has started again during the 10am service, in the Church Room next to the Village Hall in Ovingdean Road (used by Ovingdean Nursery School). Dates for this term are: Sundays: 15 May and 29 May
We will be exploring a theme based on a Bible story read in church on that Sunday, using a mix of words, music, play and simple craft for pre-school children, and school-age up to and including Yr 2, with a parent. Younger siblings would be welcome. The session will start at 10am and finish in time to walk to church and join in the Communion part of the service. Contact Judith Hewitt to let us know if you would like to come, or to find out more: firstname.lastname@example.org; 01273 700758
On Sunday 6 February we celebrated with candle themed activities and an All Age Service telling the story of Baby Jesus brought to the Temple for blessing, and learning how Jesus is a light for the whole world to rescue us all.

Pentecost Picnic Praise June 2021
Pentecost is the time when the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles (50 days after Easter). The Apostles were filled with the gift of the Holy Spirit and they began to speak in other languages. They spread the word and teachings of Jesus. The Dove and the flames are two of the symbols of the Holy Spirit.
The Dove mosaic and Fire hand-prints were art activities by children at the Pentecost Picnic Praise. Some hand prints were also contributed by children from Ovingdean Nursery School.
