ST PETER'S NEWS, 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.
PARISH GIVING SCHEME: Have you made a New Year’s resolution? If not why not commit to regular giving by signing up to the Parish Giving Scheme? Forms can be found on the heater cupboard. Any questions see Pam, Pete or Sheila. There is an Overview at

DO YOU HAVE ANY DIFFICULTIES DURING THE SERVICE? We want to ensure we are an inclusive church & no-one feels marginalised. We are planning a survey & would like to find out if any of you are having problems. Do you wear a hearing aid? Are you able to connect with the loop system? Do you need a large print service booklet, or do you need the clergy to come to you to administer the sacraments? Initially we ask that you make yourself known to Michaela (10am), Martin (8am), or Fiona (10am/Choir).
