Everyday Prayers
Start the day looking for God in your everyday life. The Church of England website has a selection of Everyday Prayers to use in the morning, first thing after waking with a cup of tea, taking time over breakfast, walking to school, waiting for a bus to work or wherever your day is about to take you.
Click here to find your Everyday Prayer.

Due to the youth of the village we are keeping Yapton Church closed. 
Please also note that Clymping is not longer open on Friday mornings.

Important Role To Fill!
We still have a vacancy for a PCC secretary for Clymping
Clymping PCC needs someone to take minutes at meetings and coordinate agendas and annual reports. They are vital roles in the life of the parishes and we need to fill these roles. PCC’s meet every other month, plus occasional standing committees in between. We have a very efficient system working and our outgoing PCC Secretary (who is retiring) will be happy to instruct the new secretary. Please consider if you might have the skills we need! Contact Richard for more details
