New messages will initally be posted on this page and then moved to our 'Archive' page.
This page will be used to pass on as much information as possible and as an archiving area so please check it regularly.

In the interest of the safety of our congregation, community and staff we have taken the decision to suspend services during this latest lock down period. All in-person services are thus cancelled.

It is a fast changing situation so please review information here, in the newsletter and in other communication channels to get the very latest updates.
We will continue to to produce our online weekly service during these times.

Please note the Church office is only contactable via email during this lockdown period.

Daily Devotionals - Oct 12 - Oct 16

Obviously as a result of all Church services being suspended, our income will now reduce considerably, but unfortunately the majority of our expenses still need to be paid, and we see ourselves called to serve more in these tough times.

Could we please encourage those of you who normally contribute via weekly envelopes or cash into the collection, to think about whether you could continue to contribute, but via different means, namely either by direct payment from your bank, or if not by perhaps sending a monthly cheque.

If you need to set up a standing order with your bank, then for Clymping church it’s:
PCC of St.Marys Clymping, sort code 40-52-40, account number 00016271
For Yapton and Ford it’s:
Yapton with Ford PCC, CAF Bank sort code 40 52 40, account number 00016631
If you would like to send a cheque, please make it payable to PCC of St.Marys Clymping, and send to 23 West Close, Middleton-on-Sea, PO22 7RP.
Or Yapton with Ford PCC, send to 32 Goodhew Close, Yapton BN18
Thank you very much in advance for any contributions you can make.
