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.
CHURCHWARDENS: Alongside the PCC are responsible for taking care of St Peter’s during the Vacancy. Any queries about the Parish should be directed to the Churchwardens.
CHURCHYARD AND GARDEN TEAM: moved to the second Saturday of the Month.
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
