St. Andrew’s offers complete cardiac security for christenings: it has placed a defibrillator right next to the font. You can now be confident that the godparents will survive the event. Cases of human spontaneous combustion (less common) can be tackled with the adjacent fire extinguisher.
The HART team from Henfield are coming to St. Andrew’s on Sunday 4th February at 12:30pm, immediately after Graham Jeffery’s 11:00am service. They will demonstrate cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of the new defibrillator. Everyone is welcome: turn up at 11:00am for the service, or 12:15pm onwards for the tutorial session.
[You should also be tempted by the Pyecombe Carol Service which is tonight at 6:00pm with the Mid Sussex Band in attendance.]
