The Reverend Dr David Crook – new appointment

On Wednesday 27th January in All Hallows, Tillington, Bishop Ruth of Horsham licensed the Reverend Dr David Crook to be Priest in Charge of the parishes of Tillington, Duncton and Upwaltham, in addition to Stopham and Fittleworth.  We send him our very best wishes for this new appointment.

The church is open every day for private prayer but, sadly, not for communal worship for the time being.

Every Sunday there will be two online services via Zoom: a contemporary Praise service at 9.30am, and a traditional Book of Common Prayer Matins service at 11.00am.

Please contact our Priest-in-charge to receive a weekly email message, including the Zoom link for these services.

SERVICES IN JANUARY 2021

As West Sussex is now in Tier 4 and the government advice is to stay at home, church services in January will revert to being held on-line via Zoom. Please contact our Priest-in-charge for further information.  The church will remain open for private prayer only.

CHRISTMAS DAY SERVICE

Due to coronavirus reducing the safe maximum capacity of Stopham Church, a booking system has been in place for the 11am Christmas Day service. With regret, there is no further space in the Church on Christmas Day.

As an alternative, you are invited to book a place (david.crook15@btinternet.com or 01798 865473) ASAP for one of the following services:

Fittleworth Carol Service on Sunday 20th at 3.30pm
