A Message from Paul & Zena
I think most of you have heard that at the end of April Paul is retiring. It will mark the end of just over five very happy years serving you all. We have had the privilege of sharing so much of your lives and the life of the village and we are now starting to think more about what God has planned for us in the next chapter of our lives.
I ask you to pray for us both over the next weeks, and for Willem (your Churchwarden) and the Church Council as they make plans for the future. Chidham will always have a special place in our hearts and prayers. Our final Sunday service will be Sunday 29th April, 10am Parish Communion.
Come along to our Saturday Morning Screening of Paddington Two. Enjoy the further adventures of the marmalade eating bear from Peru.
Tickets: Adults £5 children £3 , Unaccompanied adults welcomed
After a brief AGM the Guest Speaker will be Steve Tanner who will talk about genealogy and how to go about investigating your lineage. There’ll be lots of slides.

Call 07775 942399 if you can give a lift to someone or need a lift yourself.
