Welcome to St Alphege Church
Whether you are old or young, living here or passing through, you will always find a warm welcome in
our inclusive and family friendly church. Please come and worship God with us.
We are an Anglican church, one of five in the Whitstable Team Ministry. Our church family is made up of all ages and we are always happy to see new faces. We come together to enjoy worship and fellowship and want to share God's love with all. St Alphege church is the focal point of the High Street, you can step inside on any weekday morning for a quiet time of prayer and reflection or for a coffee and a chat.

SITUATIONS VACANT - CAN YOU HELP US?
Reculver Deanery Meeting Secretary - Following Pat Thomas’ service in this role, we need to fill the
post to ensure the smooth running of our Deanery. If you enjoy this kind of thing, we’d love to hear from you.
You don’t have to be a member of Deanery Synod. The use of email and a computer is essential. If you are interested, we can explain the process step by step. Plenty of support is always on hand.

A Big Thanks from the Latin Link Mission!
It seems likely that all jars have been returned by now so I can tell you what I think the sum of our collection is. The coffee morning raised £319.42 and the jars and cheques raised £607.90 making a grand total of £927.32. Of that, £424.60 was gift aided which will add considerably to the value of our donations.
If anyone still has a jar would you please return it by Pentecost, or if you would like to make a belated donation, please hand it in as soon as possible for banking so we can get the cheque sent off and tell Hazel and Martin Frost the good news.
Thank you to everyone who supported our annual effort. Jo Rivers
