Church Open to Visitors
The church is usually open daily from 9am for visitors and for private prayer.
Families and Children
Children are welcome at all services. In the area towards the back of the church you will find a themed “Church in a Box”. The box of activities is made available at each Parish Eucharist for children and their parents/carers to dip into during the service if they wish. The theme is changed each week.
Also of note is ‘Short and Sweet’, a monthly service particularly suited to children and families, consisting of 30 minutes of informal worship and followed by craft activities and refreshments. This service is on the 2nd Sunday of the month and starts at 10am. The theme of the upcoming service is given on the Events page.
Tea and coffee is served after the regular Parish Eucharist so please stay, chat and share in our fellowship together.
If you are new to the area, or have experienced illness, bereavement, family difficulties, etc., you may wish to speak with one of our clergy – perhaps to arrange a meeting, or a visit for a Home Communion. If so, please see the Contact page for details.
The Good Book Club
A daytime House Group, which meets fortnightly on Wednesdays, gathering from 11am in the village, to discuss various books of the Bible – currently, the Gospel according to Luke.
For more information about the group, and where it meets, please speak to Judy Penhaligon.
Coffee and Cake
Mary Tucker is kindly hosting “coffee & cake” at her house after the Wednesday morning Holy Communion service. Pop in to St Peter's Cottage any time after 10:30am for a warm welcome.
Morning refreshments will be hosted on alternate weeks with “The Good Book Club”.
Everyone is welcome to drop in to Friday Café in Cowfold Village Hall between 10 and 12 every Friday morning for refreshments and companionship.
