Introduction to Contemplative Prayer “Meditation is a universal spiritual wisdom and a practice found at the core of all the great religious traditions. It is not a complicated or essentially difficult practice. It is a way of simplicity, silence and stillness.” This course is open to all beginners. The introduction will continue on the following dates: Monday 7th, 14th & 28th, all at 14:00 in St Andrew’s Chapel, St Thomas à Becket’s, Pagham.

Midweek services during the winter months With the change of the clocks we have made a few changes to our worship arrangements. These changes have been made to help us manage energy costs at the church and second, to make sure that these times of prayer remain accessible for those who don’t like to turn out on cold mornings/ dark evenings. Midweek services at the church will be held in St Andrew’s Chapel (with exception of Tuesday@7), Tuesday and Wednesday Evening Prayer has moved on to Zoom, at 17:30.
