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 St Peter’s Church, Seaview and in St Mary’s, Brading. There will be clip boards in St Peter’s , St Helen’s and St Catherine’s chapel where the names of your loved ones can be written down and will then be read out at this service.

Seaview PCC

During the interregnum, Seaview PCC is meeting monthly with Revd Barry Downer attending. Minutes of the meetings will be posted on the parish notice board by the PCC Secretary for you to read.
