Women’s World Day of Prayer – Friday, 3rd March

The Women’s World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action. It dates back to the 19th century when Christian women in the USA and Canada initiated a variety of cooperative activities in support of women’s involvement in mission, at home and abroad.

This year’s service has been prepared by the women of the Philippines.

Our local Committee invites you all, men as well as women to the service which will be held at :-

St Nicholas’ Church

Saltdean Vale



on Friday, 3rd March at 2pm

Refreshments to follow service


Christianity Explored Course

Christianity Explored gives people time and space to think about the big questions of life and to explore the life of the man at the heart of the Christian faith. As we explore Mark’s Gospel, people find out who Jesus is, why he came and what it means to follow him.

We are thinking of running a new course at some stage over the next couple of months or so.  If you are interested, or know someone you could invite to a one-off evening to find our more, please speak to Gareth or contact us via the form below:-
