An update about staff vacancies at the Old Rectory: we have offered posts for some office roles in the last few days and we will give more information in due course. Please continue to pray for the youth ministry interviews next week.

As Karen Kinder is leaving her role as Communications Manager next week, it is a likely scenario that there will be no printed notices until her replacement is firmly in post (no date as yet). During this time, the team at the Old Rectory will only be able to send out a ‘lite notices’ via email - if you don’t already receive the notices by email and would like to go on the list please email If you have notices that you want included in the future, you’ll also need to use the above email. Thanks for your understanding as we adjust to staff changes.

Come to the next Women’s Film Night on Tuesday 26th February, 7.30pm. We’ll think about and discuss the question ‘What are the roots of our fear and judgement of others?’ Intriguing...even more so because we’re considering this question by watching a comedy! As well as a great discussion there are free snacks, tea and coffee and a chance to meet a great bunch of diverse women. Babes in arms very welcome too! Places limited. Contact for more information or to book your space.

Pick a Pew and Put a Pledge on a Pew. On Sunday 10th March, perambulate to peer at pews. The PCC need to produce a plan to procure permanent places for the pews. So need people to purchase pews or parts of pews. Period of perusal is 11.15am-12.30pm. Precise parameters and provisos will be present and procedures for procurement will be presented to persons possibly pledging and payment for the pews. Numbers limited so pledge protects pew purchase. Please take part and participate in this particular presentation. Or contact Michael Stubbs!

A reminder that there is a service change at Hambledon on 3rd March - Please come along at 9.00am to have your say about the Associate Minister role.

On Thursday 7th March, Nexus welcomes Michael Baughen, a retired Bishop, a composer of hymns and an author, who is coming to talk to us. Do join us to learn something of Michael’s life story and his calling to ordained ministry; his passion for his faith, and his many other interests. We meet at 8.00pm in Busbridge Church Centre. All are very welcome.

We are putting together an Easter Choir to support Easter Day Services at Busbridge. Rehearsals for the Classic 9.00am service will be held on either Mondays or Thursdays at 8.00pm. The Contemporary material for the 10.30am service will be rehearsed separately during a Choir Workshop event on  Saturday 30th March. All are welcome. If you'd like to be involved, or to find out more about either choir or the Choir Workshop in March, contact Julie Nelson.
