Through the Week at St Peter's
Up to now we have had to operate an invitation system for our 10.00am service on Sundays, to ensure that we complied with Covid regulations and kept everyone safe. We have gradually increased our capacity and have now decided that we are able to safely make it “Open Access” from Sunday 3rd October onwards – no booking required! Our chairs are well spaced and there is still some social distancing. Please try to arrive by 9.50 am so that we have time to seat everybody safely. Please also follow directions by the stewards when coming forward for Holy Communion.
There are no plans to resume Sunday School at the moment; Young Families are still provided for at the fortnightly 10.00am Saturday morning Eucharist Services (again no booking is required). Discussions will be taking place soon on the way forward for our very important Childrens Ministry
We look forward to seeing you all!!
The World Day of Prayer
This service should have been held in March, but due to obvious reasons was cancelled.
It will now be held on Wednesday 6th October 2pm
at St John’s Church, Canton.
New Life Church became a collection and distribution point for Feeding Fairwater in April 2020 when Hayley, who started it, didn’t have enough room in her house to store the food. Because the church building was not in use for many weekly activities, tables and shelving were put up around the rooms to store the food. It was mainly the young people of the church facilitating this, with help from others in the community who were happy to use their cars for collection and distribution.
At the height of the giving 150 people were being supported. The food came from the community, some businesses and the church also funded it.
The numbers needing help decreased and last Sunday was the last time deliveries were made. The families still needing support have been guided to other food banks in the area. Any food that we have is being passed on to other food banks.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed food to this scheme. You can see an interview about the scheme on You Tube: https://youtu.be/QOwgu78k4uA
