Loving Midhurst, Helping Refugees, Doing Good

One of the reasons I love Grace Church is that we do good things!

We are structured as a multisite church, which means we are one church with one vision, one leadership and one message … but meeting in more than one location (or ‘site’).

Grace Church Midhurst

Our third site was started in 2015 in the wonderful and picturesque town of Midhurst, currently meeting at Capron House each Sunday at 10am (All welcome! Come as you are!) Being in Midhurst is exciting and we have been delighted to see new people coming along as our congregation there has started to grow in number and connect with the town.

Garden Party & Syrian Refugee Fund

Grace Church Midhurst Sussex | Steve Petch Church Leader BlogLast autumn we launched this new site publicly with a “Garden Party” in Midhurst, which incidentally raised £875 for the Syrian Refugee Relief Fund who work in refugee camps in Reyhanli in Turkey, near the border with Syria. They used that money to provide prosthetic limbs and the required physiotherapy to two refugees who had lost limbs to bombs in Syria. They were also able to provide some training to people in the camp to help manufacture more prosthetics.

Grace Church then sent a further £2,275 to this cause following a special offering at each of our carol services. I love our church! We do good things!

In March we delivered 16,000 leaflets across Midhurst and the surrounding area to let people know that we are in town. It’s been good to see guests come and check us out as a result.

I’ve included a copy of the leaflet which says it all:
