Update – 3rd November 2020
During the new lockdown St Peter’s will remain open for private prayer Monday to Friday, and the clergy team are available for funerals in church or at the crematoria or burial ground – in line with Government regulation.
We continue to meet Mon-Fri for morning & evening prayer on Facebook, for weekly Bible Study and Junior Church on Zoom. We continue to plan our Advent and Christmas services and to offer spiritual communion every Sunday on Facebook and our YouTube channel. Resources to pray together at home and across the church community during Advent are on the way.
Let’s stay safe – and let’s stay together.
All our plans will take into account our desire to be open, warm and welcoming, to be inclusive, to share in the sacrament, to keep the highest standard of worship we are able to maintain and to do all these things safely.
Please contact the Vicar or the Parish Office if you have any questions or concerns.
Please continue to pray for us and all faith communities in our town.
This does not mean that we stop being ‘The Church’. Rather, we are invited to experiment – and be creative – with praying, worshipping and serving differently. Some excellent online resources for daily prayer can be found on the Church of England’s website, and via a prayer and worship resource for use at home that is available here on our own website.
Please take every precaution to keep yourself safe and well, including good hygiene and by refraining from physical contact with others.
Our overall aim will be to offer support to those who need it, and the opportunity to continue connecting with God through the ministry of the church throughout the coming days.
Please join us in praying for all who may feel anxious at this time. Please do contact us via telephone, through the website or our social media channels if you need to.
With love and every blessing.
