The Sunday Link for 25 September has details of our forthcoming services and other events, including two events on 28 September - a Men's Group meeting addressed by a would-be astronaut at the Presentation and Deanery Synod at St Wilfrid's. There are also details of another two events on Saturday 1 October, one at each of our churches, and the Presentation's Harvest Festival the next day (with a collection for our Food Bank - see below).

During September Medecins Sans Frontieres is our Charity of the Month. Its website is here: Medecins Sans Frontieres. Our other 2016 charities of the month and Centenary Hall charity lunches - which started with one for Medecins Sans Frontieres on Wednesday 7 September at 12.30pm: thank you for supporting that - are listed in our online Parish Diary (as at 9 September 2016) on the Parish Diary page.


Our Food Bank in Sussex Road is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area. We don't think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That's why our Food Bank provides three days' nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to it in crisis. It is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. Our Presentation Church Harvest Festival collection of non-perishable food (Sunday 2 October) will be donated to our Food Bank.

For a calendar of events about our Food Bank visit the Food Bank website.


FSW - the Chichester Diocesan Association for Family Support Work - not only welcomes donations in cash or online; it also invites you to volunteer for a range of activities. Our parish regularly and gladly supports FSW's fundraising efforts.

Leaflets about our programme are at the back of St Wilfrid’s Church, which is usually open Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm.

Details of our services and activities can also be found in the Weekly Notices and Parish Diary and Activities pages of this web site, which are updated frequently.

You may notice our site’s colour changing occasionally. This reflects the seasons of the church year from Advent (just before Christmas) to Trinity (May to November). We now have the bright Easter colours, which will remain until Trinity Sunday.
