Through the Week at St Peter's
News from Canton Benefice – part of our emerging West Cardiff Ministry Area
Encounter: Caring for Creation meets on Wednesdays fortnightly to discuss many of the issues facing our world at the moment, what the Bible has to say about them and what we think a Christian response should be. The group is very informal and there is no homework, reading or being put on the spot (there is a course booklet you can purchase for £3 however you do not need this to be involved in the conversation). We begin at 7.30 pm and aim to end by 9 pm and we would love you to join us. Please contact Mother Frances for the zoom invite - We hope to see you there! firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Community Hall has Reopened!
Following an update in Government restrictions and Church in Wales guidelines, our Community Hall is now opened to certain groups and activities. Please contact your group leader as prior booking may be required. Alternatively, enquiries may be made to the Hall Manager (see below).
Our Garden is also open to a limited number of volunteers, and we have welcomed back some familiar faces , but at the moment it is not open to the public
On Wednesdays, and depending on the weather, following the 10.15 Eucharist, the Community Garden patio will be open for people to sit and chat. Please bring your own flask as the kitchen is still closed and please avoid areas where volunteers are working in the garden. Please maintain social distancing between yourselves - to keep everyone safe!
News from the Parochial Church Council
The first meeting of the new PCC was held recently. Reverend Emma talked us through the changes in the structure of the parish and the emerging Ministry Area, which will replace our current structure at the end of 2021. A number of questions from the PCC will be referred back to the Ministry Area Transition team. Although there were some concerns, the overall feeling was that there was much to gain from pooling our expertise and experiences in a changing society.
Other matters discussed:
Mark Saunders was welcomed as our new Safeguarding officer
Richard Marsh has registered St Peters with the Parish Buying Group. This will enable us to access utilities, broadband/phone, stationery, altar supplies etc at favourable rates.
Caring for Creation – during Lockdown people have continued to bring crisp packets for recycling and Kirstie has sent away one large batch and has another ready soon – testament to the number of crisps consumed while we were confined! We hope to start Litter Picks in the local area soon.
We will be celebrating our Patronal Festival on Sunday 27th June. Weather permitting, we hope to enjoy a socially distanced glass of Prosecco in the garden after the service.
