A programme of events is on the Notice Board in the church. Twice a year they celebrate with a Corporate Communion Service. The group is deeply committed to the Diocesan Prayer Chain. Members play an active part in the Chichester District Activities. In 2022 they hosted the District Eucharist Service led by the Midhurst Vicar. Many members are actively involved in church life and the community. They annually make posies for the Mothering Sunday Service and serve teas at the Relaxed Carol Service. They contribute regularly to Mothers’ Union Worldwide Projects by raising money with raffles and Bring and Buy Stalls at their meetings. They have various social events :- Garden Party, Afternoon tea and Coffee mornings at member’s houses an annual outing is also organised.

They support Worldwide appeals :- Prison Week, Anti – Slavery Day and 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence – the latter was supported by the group with a 3 minute Vigil outside the Parish Church. Several years they have had displays to celebrate Marriage week. The Branch has a committee of seven members and is part of the Chichester District with two representatives on that committee. Members regularly attend the Mothers’ Union Diocesan General Meetings and AGM and the World-wide Conference.
