In church

We are finally reopening a branch of Mothers’ Union here at St Peters on the 14th July during the All Age service, when the diocesan president, Marion Ketley will be with us.  If you put your name on the previous list of those interested in becoming members, or if you would like to join, please let me know by signing the sheet on the table at the back of church.

If you have any photos of Parish/Church life, send them to Paul or Sarah via email and they will be posted on the parish blog site.

At the back of church is a letter from Fr Paul, on behalf of the Buildings Committee.  It concerns our church building and where we go from here.  Please take a copy with you, read it, think and pray about it and make your choice from the four options given.  There will be a box in church into which you are asked to put your reply, no later than the 25th August.

Starting today and for the next few Sundays (hopefully into September) the church will be open from 2.00 – 5.00 pm serving tea/coffee and cakes.  We need volunteers to ‘man’ the church so if you think you could spare a few hours on a Sunday afternoon once in a while, please speak to  Bernard, Judith, Frances or Sue.

New rotas (September – December) will be available soon.  If you would like to be added on to any of the rotas – welcoming, serving, reading, coffee, cleaning, flower arranging or Rocks leaders, please let Sarah know by the beginning of August.  If you know you’re not going to be around for specific dates, please let Sarah know.

If you are not sure if you’d like to be added on to the rotas on a regular basis but would perhaps like to try something – even if it’s just once – please speak to Sarah or have a chat with someone who is on the rota.  We are most urgently in need of Servers so please give that some thought.

And remember, as with everything, the more people on one particular rota, the less often you’ll be called on!  For example, if you’re on the readers rota, you’ll probably be down to read once every 10 – 12 weeks.  At the moment, the servers are down to serve every other week……
