A community access defibrillator has been installed outside the church by the entrance door to the halls.
The church has been fundraising for this for over a year and it was a focus of our Celebrate80 celebrations.
We hope it never has to be used, but that the quicker a defibrillator is used if someone has a cardiac arrest, the greater the chances of survival. If you think you need to use it, call 999, and the operator will give you the access code.
Thank you to:
- Gloria Moss from Felpham Parish Council for a huge amount of guidance and support she's given us.
- everyone who has contributed to the fundraising effort by donating time or money.
- the family and friends of Barbara Taylor, a member of our church family, who donated to the fund in her memory.
Why has the church worked so hard to install a Defibrillator?
Our mission statement is Discovering God, Welcoming All, Serving the Community.
Discovering God - We believe God made us all and asks us to care for one another.
Welcoming All - We believe that God loves us all and asks the church to be welcoming and hospitable and take everyone's safety into account. You don't need to belong to the church or even enter the church building to use the Defibrillator, it can be accessed by anyone in the community.
Serving the Community - We want to serve the community with all our resources - people, skills, money and building. We try to spread hope, peace and love.
