Ride and Stride Saturday 11 September

Sussex Historic Churches Trust is holding their annual ‘Ride and Stride’ event on Saturday 11th September. The Trust was founded in 1956 with the sole aim of preserving the county’s historic places of worship and since that time has helped more than 500 churches and chapels. To qualify, buildings must be over 100 years old and open for public worship.

‘Ride and Stride’ is a sponsored event where participants walk, cycle or even horse ride to as many churches as possible. Money raised is shared between the Trust and the church each person is supporting. In 2019 St. Peter’s received £180. It is a fun day out as, apart from any financial gain, it allows those taking part to visit a variety of places of worship in the city and to meet with others during the day.

Help is also needed in manning the church to welcome riders and offer a drink and biscuit.

If you would like to support this event in any way please look out for more information in August on the church notice board and contact Jane Stone 

Family Picnic Sunday 5 September

Following the Family Service on Sunday 5 September, we will be serving hot and cold soft drinks and there will be fun activities for the children. Weather permitting, we will be able to make use of our field and we would like to invite you to bring a picnic so we can have an opportunity for some long awaited time to socialise.

This event replaces the Family BBQ originally planned to take place on Sunday 15 August but which has had to be cancelled.

July Events

Following the lifting of many of the ‘Covid’ restrictions, in July, St Peter’s events team has been delighted to hold some very successful fund raising events.

Quiz Night at the Chichester Inn – was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with around 40 people taking part. The winning team, Bayleaf Bunch, just pipped ‘Ruth’s Friends’ at the post to win a complementary meal for two and a bottle of wine. Our grateful thanks to the Fund Raising Team; The Chichester Inn for providing us with the venue and the quiz prize and to the generous people who donated raffle prizes. The quiz plus raffle raised over £1,100 for church funds.
