For your PRAYERS

The Persecuted Church: Christians in NIGERIA (No. 9 on ‘Open Doors’ list) – Although half the population are Christians, inc. the largest Anglican Church in the world, more Christians are murdered for their faith in Nigeria than in any other country.  Whilst attacks by extremist Islamic groups in Northern and Central Nigeria are common, the violence is now spreading further south.


INDIA grappling with the enormity of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Those at Schools, Colleges and University sitting EXAMS.


The Sick: Fred STILLWELL currently in Pembury Hospital.  Kath reports that very sadly “he is suffering multiple organ failure” and that “it is a question of time”.     Kath herself is due to have a major knee operation on 28th May.


The Bereaved: the Family and Friends of Jenny HARMAN whose husband Stuart runs the Jarvis Brook Under 10’s football team which some of our Church Family are members of.



Annual Parochial Church Meeting


The Annual Meeting this year will be on Monday 17th May at 7.00pm in Withyham Church.


The majority of last year was, of course, the quietest in living memory.  However, this gathering will still provide an opportunity both to reflect on what has gone before as well as to look forward to what lies ahead. We shall approve the accounts and hold elections including for a new Churchwarden.  The meeting shouldn’t last more than an hour.

The parish comprises the villages of Withyham and Blackham, together with neighbouring hamlets including Lye Green.

It has two churches: the ancient, Grade One listed, St. Michael and All Angels, Withyham together with early Twentieth Century All Saints Church, Blackham.

The present Rector is Canon James Campbell who lives with his family at the Rectory next to Withyham Church. Please contact him with any queries regarding baptisms, weddings and funerals, or any pastoral matters: 01892 770069
