The Bishop Horsham The Right Reverend Mark Sowerby came to St Peter’s to confirm Sarah, Sally and Britt from Henfield and Anna and Richard from Edburton.
After the very moving Service we enjoyed refreshments and cake!
This morning (15th June) The Reverend Peter O’Connell shaved his beard. The event took place in Budgens on the High Street. Peter was sponsored to raise money towards the new Scout Hut in Henfield. Henfield’s Scout group was founded in 1907, and is believed to be the oldest in the world in continuous existence.
On Saturday 29th June at St Peter’s Church, Henfield, we are hosting our annual Fete from 2pm until 4.30pm in the Vicarage Garden, Church Lane.

Entertainment will be provided by Brass Fusion. There will also be bell ringing, a magician, face painting, games and a raffle; and the usual plant stall, bottle stall, cakes stall, jams and preserves; ice-creams, teas and refreshments. Entry £1 adults, children free.
The next event presented by The Keys is a concert with Yorkshire folk singer-songwriter John Froud. This concert is also advertised on John’s web site.

Vicar of Henfield Alastair Cutting is due to be Installed at Southwark Cathedral at 3pm on Sunday 14 April, the second Sunday after Easter. (Archdeacons have a stall in a cathedral, hence installation.) Alastair is one of the three archdeacons being installed that day – further detail on the Southwark staff team (soon to be updated with the fresh appointments) is on the Southwark diocesan web site.
You don’t need a ticket for the service, but it would help to have an idea of numbers, so please use one of the sign-up sheets in our churches, or contact the office 01273 495532.
There is minimal parking near the cathedral; and as London Bridge train station is less than 5 minutes away, that would appear to be the best way to travel. From Hassocks, suggested trains are 12:54, getting to London Bridge at 14:05; or the 13:24 from Hassocks getting in at 14:35.
Rev’d Peter O’Connell has been leading a Lent course based on St. Paul’s pastoral letters to Titus and Timothy.
As part of this, Peter encouraged the group to apply some of the insights from these ancient scriptures over the weeks of the course in new ways for today’s church – the members attending have a list of suggestions to talk with the PCC about!
St. Peter’s now has its own small lending ‘bank’ on Kiva, and the Lent group members decided which projects to give to. Have a look at their sponsored projects by clicking below:
