Christ Church is a grade II* listed church in central Worthing that serves a diverse community.There has been a long-standing ambition for reordering of the west end of the church, to create a more flexible open space or narthex in an interior which is densely populated with pews.
Rather than sending Christmas cards this year, we are supporting Children on the Edge, a Chichester based child rights organisation that works hand-in-hand with communities to support some of the world’s most marginalised children, in some of the toughest situations.
The Rowans Hospice opened in October 1994 as a bespoke-designed, independent hospice for the provision of palliative in-patient and day care for life limiting illnesses. The hospice serves the city of Portsmouth and surrounding south east Hampshire, and the building is also used to support patients’ families and as a base for education.
This stunning rose made from scrap metal including fridges and ovens, the creation of landscape gardener Jamie Cullimore, will soon be installed as the centre piece of the water feature in the newly developed courtyard garden of The Rowans Hospice.
We have just handed over the second stage of the ward refurbishment at the Rowans Hospice, delivering a further eight en suite bedrooms for patients. This stage has also included the refurbishment of a specialist bathroom, as well as creation of additional storage, meeting spaces and snugs for use by the ward staff and relatives.
Rather than sending Christmas cards this year, we are supporting local charity Stonepillow’s Christmas Kindness campaign. Stonepillow was formed in 1989 and works to support and empower homeless and vulnerable people to achieve sustainable independence and wellbeing in the area covered by Chichester and Arun District Councils.
Following a planning committee meeting on 29 September, lasting late into the evening, we are delighted to have received permission on behalf of the parish of St Margaret’s Church, Ifield, Crawley, West Sussex for the demolition of the existing single storey annexe and new build of a two storey extension to the church hall.
Congratulations to the team at St Mary’s, Portsea for securing a £764,000 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund towards the conservation repair of their unique 1889 JW Walker and Sons pipe organ.
