CHURCH LIFE

 

CHURCH RELATIONSHIPS

 

  There are strong ties between St Nicolas’ and St Mary’s especially on the musical side. There is a good relationship between St Nicolas’ and St Mary’s choirs, combining at major festivals and services such as the Advent Carol Service, the Annual Carol Service, the Town Carol Service, Patronal Festivals, as well as Holy Week and Easter Week programmes and BCP Choral Evensong. This is true also of other activities which are organised by one and supported by the other. There is a shared weekly newsletter and monthly magazine. The five Anglican churches together with St Michael and All Angels Southwick form a group ministry.  
  Shoreham has a Roman Catholic, Baptist and Methodist Church and Shoreham Free Church which together with the five Anglican churches form Shoreham Churches Together. There is also a small Strict Baptist Church, a Quaker Meeting and a newly formed branch of the Church of Christ the King. There are strong ecumenical links within Shoreham Churches Together and many activities take place. These include quarterly joint evening services, services during the week of prayer for Christian Unity, Lent groups or talks, the Women’s World Day of Prayer Celebration, the Good Friday Act of Witness and the Town Christian Aid Collection and a ‘unity’ candle which is passed between the various churches by the laity on a monthly basis. There have also been some social events, a children’s holiday club and a bereavement support group has recently been set up.  
  We have three representatives on the Deanery Synod, who regularly attend meetings and report back to the PCC.
Our Cathedral Link keeps the Parish informed of events at the Cathedral.
