Summer Fete

St Nicholas' annual summer fete was on Saturday 29th June.

The fete was opened by Lord Henry, Earl of Arundel, and songs by Arundel CE School.

People from across the parish and visitors to the town all enjoyed a day of fun, music, bargains and food. It was a happy, even joyful occasion, full of sunshine and smiles.

Early indications suggest that the fete raised around £9000 towards the running and upkeep of Arundel's parish church.

Ordination of Timothy Newton

Timothy Newton was ordained deacon by the Bishop of Lewes in a moving service at St Nicholas' on Sunday 23rd June.

It is a joy to welcome Fr Tim along with his wife, Stephanie, and children Winnie and Rupert to the parishes.

Fr Tim, who's originally from Queensland, spent some time as an opera singer, including a year singing for Deutsche Oper as a young artist, before moving to St Stephen's House Oxford to train for ordination.

He will serve as assistant curate in the parishes of Arundel with Tortington and South Stoke.
