For your PRAYERS

Israel and Ukraine.

Worldwide elections inc. South Africa, India, UK & USA. ‘The world needs leaders who cannot be bought; whose word is their bond; who put character above wealth; possess opinions and a will; are larger than their vocations; do not hesitate to take chances; will not lose their individuality in a crowd; will be honest in small things as in great things; will make no compromise with wrong; whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires …’ (unknown author, quoted by Ted Engstrom (1916-2006) American Christian leader and author).

 

The Persecuted Church: Christians in CHINA. Christians face increasing persecution from repressive laws and intrusive surveillance from the Communist authorities, but the church continues to grow.

CHURCHWARDEN'S NOTES

On 5th May, the Rogation Service began inside the Church, before Rev. Campbell led the congregation outside
and around the Church exterior.  Looking across the beautiful Sussex countryside, he blessed the fields for a
fruitful harvest. He once told me that a farmer, in a previous parish, had noticed an increase in his yield after the Rogation Service, so let's hope the blessing works here too.


Since then, James and Mary Campbell have enjoyed a two-week break, attended two weddings and also hopefully, a well earned rest. Our thanks go to Donald Yonge for conducting the services during this period, allowing the Campbells to have their time away.


The APCM, the Annual Parochial Church Meeting for both churches, took place on Monday 20th May at Withyham. It was a chance to look back at the previous year and to look forward to the year to come, approve accounts and hold elections.


Three weddings will take place at Withyham in June, in a sparkling church full of flowers and with the bells, there cannot be a more beautiful place to be married.
