CHILDREN from Brede Primary School met the Lord Bishop of Chichester recently when he arrived in the village to lay a foundation stone for the new rectory at St George’s Church.
The Bishop, the Very Rev’d Dr Martin Warner unveiled the foundation stone last Thursday following a short service in St. George’s, at which the children from Brede School sang.
The Bishop was joined by Brede Rector Father Martin Harper for the building site dedication.
Steve Edwards, from the church, said: “The new Rectory will provide a private venue close to the Church for anyone to meet the Rector and also enable the Rector to be closer to the Church. The building is expected to be completed by the end of September.”
