Through the Week at St Peter's
Baptisms; Holy Communion
Please pray for all to be baptised this month and for our children to receive their first Holy Communion
Following Fr Colin’s retirement at the end of this month, it will not be possible to maintain all our services while we wait for the appointment of a new priest.
Father Huw has very kindly offered to celebrate the Eucharist with us at 10am on Sundays and 10.15am on Wednesdays.
However the 8am Eucharist on Sundays, as well as the Eucharist on Mondays and Saturdays will be suspended. Obviously this will place an added demand for places at our two remaining services – but we cannot safely increase capacity. We will do our best to ensure that everyone has a fair opportunity to attend Church, but it will mean that people will be able to come less frequently, and we ask for your patience and acceptance of this difficult situation.
However we hope that you will join us in a Spiritual Communion at home – using the resource on our website (under Worship) or by taking home one of the printed sheets we will provide in Church.
Hall & Gardens
The Hall has had to remain closed after Christmas due to the Tier 4 restrictions.
The Gardens will reopen for a few volunteers to continue working, but they will not be open to the public
SHARING RESPONSIBILITIES –
Jayne and Kate will liaise with the Area Dean and Ministry Area leader should anyone want to see a priest.
Music – when we are able to sing again, our organist Neil will be choosing the hymns each week.
Stewards – at the moment we have stewards welcoming people, completing track & trace records, and keeping us Covid safe. We look forward to the return of welcomers, readers, intercessors, servers & administers in the future.
Yvonne, our Pastoral Care Co-ordinator, continues to check that our sick and housebound are kept in touch with, and arrange with other licensed Administers to visit those who want to receive Holy Communion at home, when circumstances permit.
Weekly Readings & News will be prepared by Kate in co-operation with Fr Huw and Margaret Smith (for reflections). Others will share the task of printing.
Kirstie is our Sacristan – she is responsible for many things in Church, among them washing the linen, preparing the altar and keeping the church clean.
