NEW CURATE TO JOIN St RICHARD’s & St THOMAS à BECKET PARISHES IN SEPTEMBER 2020
LETTER FROM MOTHER LUCY SULLIVAN
I am looking forward to meeting you all very soon and to joining the communities of Aldwick and Pagham.
My first Sunday with you all will be the 13th September. As some of you may have anticipated in order to enable me to serve both communities there will need to be some small changes to the usual pattern of worship in each the church. I am very grateful to the Churchwardens and PCC of both parishes for their help in negotiating and agreeing these initial changes.
From the 13th September our new pattern for worship will be as follows:
08:00 BCP Holy Communion (alternating between parishes, starting in Aldwick on the 13th September)
09:30 Parish Eucharist- St Thomas à Becket, Pagham
11:15 Parish Eucharist- St Richard’s, Aldwick
10:00 Eucharist- St Richard’s, Aldwick
10:00 BCP Holy Communion- St Thomas à Becket, Pagham
Together we will continue to review and reflect on this pattern of worship and I look forward to adding evening services in both parishes in due course.
This is a time of change for us all and change can be uncomfortable, especially in uncertain times, but I hope that with prayer and in listening we can find a way forward that works in both Aldwick and Pagham.
Be assured of my prayer for you all in this time of preparation.
