In 2017, the five churches of the benefice need to raise around £40,000 to cover our running costs and diocesan contribution. We welcome covenants, donations, legacies and fund raising events, and can allocate donations to a particular church, parish or to the benefice as a whole. Please contact Richard Archer for Burton or Coates; David Hunter for Sutton or Bignor; or Johnny Grout-Smith for Barlavington.
Coates would welcome volunteers to help with cleaning the church or maintaining the grounds once or twice a year. If you can help, please contact churchwarden Alex Hill-Smith for further information.
