ST PETER'S EVENTS, SOCIAL AND FUNDRAISING
At St Peter's we believe that serving and worshipping God is not just about sitting in church on a Sunday. It involves fellowship with one another, meeting new people and enjoying each other's company.
We try and combine this social side of church with much needed fundraising too. We have planned a wide range of events which we hope everyone will enjoy over the year. Please put the dates in your diary and watch out for more details and additional events.
