Church campaigns, needs and good causes

Flowers! Flowers! Flowers!

We are very blessed with those who work so hard to decorate our church with flowers and greenery; thank you so much, ladies!  However, we wish to increase the numbers on the team …  Can you help?  It would be good to take the pressure off the small team, who do such a great job – and perhaps you are someone who could assist?  Male or female, old or young, you’d be most welcome to join the enthusiastic team.

Please speak to Fr Terry in the first instance.  Thank you.

The WCHP Christmas Tree is Back!

Our annual WCHP Christmas Tree has a number of tags on it with ideas for a present for a homeless person.

Please take a tag and return the gift you are buying at the Christmas Gift Service on 13th December. Gifts will then be delivered to the Worthing Churches Homelessness Project. It would help if the gift could be Christmas wrapped.
Please attach the tag from our tree, describing the gift and, if relevant, saying whether it is for female or male. There is also a WCHP Christmas Wish List on the notice board, which gives gift ideas, including food items.

Worthing Homeless Project

Thank you for your generous donations last weekend for this year’s Homeless Project. Every Monday night from now until mid March 2016 we will be providing food, drink, shelter and friendship in the Parish Centre for 14 homeless men and/or women.

We will also provide food for the homeless who are not able to be included in the project. Would you be willing to spend a few hours helping us, may be by cooking and bringing it along on Monday Night or cooking it at home and getting one of us to pick it up? We provide an evening meal, dessert and breakfast.

The weather is changing and many of the homeless are in need of a change of clothes
(sizes medium to large); jumpers, jeans, and socks etc. Sleeping bags also needed. Can you
help? Please contact Rod Thick on rod.504t@ntlworld.com, or Heidi Walker on walkerhm02@ntlworld.com Items to be considered: tea, coffee, fruit juice, sugar, jams and marmalade, home-made cakes, flapjacks …

Justice & Peace Join the Global Climate March

“I ask you in the name of God to defend Mother Earth.” (Pope Francis, ‘Laudato Si’).

Next Sunday (29 Nov) over 1 million people are expected to march in nearly 3,000 cities around the world before the start of the U.N.’s Paris Climate Summit. Hundreds of thousands of them will be Catholics.

Will you be one? Will you respond to the Pope’s call to care for creation? Journey with us as we put Laudato Si into action and join the London Global Climate March on November 29th.
