All who are baptised are welcome to receive Holy Communion.

Communion Hymn               298         Let there be love shared among us

Prayer after Communion
Strengthen for service, Lord,
the hands that have taken holy things;
may the ears which have heard your word
be deaf to clamour and dispute;
may the tongues which have sung your praise
be free from deceit;
may the eyes which have seen the tokens of your love
shine with the light of hope;
and may the bodies which have been fed with your body
be refreshed with the fullness of your life;
glory to you for ever.  Amen.


Final Hymn


O God our help in ages past

Waltham Forest Deanery Mothers' Union will be holding a festival service and strawberry cream tea at Peterhouse at 2.30 pm on August 3rd. Costs are £4.50 per adult and £6.00 per adult and child/children. Proceeds will be sent to the MU Wheels Appeal - a fund which supports MU workers across the world to travel to support families, sometimes over long distances and through dangerous terrain. A very warm welcome to everyone from St Peters and especially all newly enrolled MU members. There will be a poster on the MU notice board and a list for you to sign 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.

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……

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.

Open Church – Sunday afternoons from 2.00 – 5.00 pm.  There will be tea/coffee and cakes available.  Please do come!  We need volunteers to staff the church and/or make a cake - please speak to  Bernard, Judith, Frances or Sue.
