An Advent Course & All Souls Service

Advent Course

We will be starting an Advent Course based on the book How Rural Churches Thrive which is available on line at £9.99. This is an easy to read and practical book that is applicable to all churches in our Haven Benefice, providing encouragement and challenging us as we prepare for our future as a Benefice. It will run each Wednesday evening in Brading Church Hall between 6pm and 7.30pm starting on Wednesday 9th November.

All Souls Service

All Soul's Services, at which we remember our departed loved ones, will be held at 4.00pm on Sunday 30th October in both St Peter’s Church, Seaview and St Mary's Church, Brading. If you would like to have the names of your loved ones read out during one of these services, please enter them on one of the lists that can be found at the back of St Helen’s Church, St Peter’s Church or St Catherine’s Chapel for the service at St Peter's, or the list at St Mary's church for the service there. Everyone is very welcome to attend.

Eco Church

Eco Church is this Sunday at 3.30pm, at St Helen's Church. We'll have prayers, and a planning session for next year. We always finish with a shared supper. All welcome.
