Pett and Pett Level

Church Services: On Sunday July 12 – Sea Sunday, St Nicholas, Pett Level at 10:30am. For some years Pett Church has been sharing this service with the Methodists on the beach by the Rescue Boat House. It is a great place to hold an outdoor service and this year it will be shared not only with the Methodists but also the Fairlight congregation and the children of the Uniformed Organisations will be joining in.

As always the collection will be donated to The Mission to Seafarers- a worldwide organisation supporting and helping seafarers, who are often away from home for many months at a time. Please come along and bring a chair, as deck chairs are not provided!

Village Choir: On Monday July 13 the Village Choir will meet again at 7:30pm in Pett Methodist Chapel.
