At a meeting of the Committee of Management on the 17th April 1944 the Secretary, Mr A J Rule raised the question as to the issue of a ‘News  Sheet’ on alternate months to Shelley Road’s “Outlook” magazine.

NB. Shelley Road was the Congregational Church in central Worthing.

The meeting asked Mr Rule to undertake the work of its preparation and publishing.

At the following meeting in July of that year he reported that 150 copies of the 1st number of the Elm ‘Grove Chronicle’ had been issued at a cost of 18/6 (92½p).  It was decided not to make a charge.
