FORTHCOMING SERVICES AND EVENTS AT ST PETER’S
All Age Service – Sunday 10th September
next All Age Service is our animal service.
Weather permitting, we’ll meet in the Forest – in the clearing just
behind the church building. The service
starts at 10.00 am and we aim to keep it to an hour. Animals of all shapes and sizes are welcome –
as of course are people!
Parish Lunch @ Peterhouse Centre – 1st
and join us for our Parish Lunch; starting with a glass of sherry, followed by
a hearty, hot, two course meal, finishing off with coffee and mints, all
surrounded by good company. Cost is
£6.50 for adults and £3.00 for children under 10. To book, please call 020 8509 1811 or email email@example.com
Harvest concert by London Gallery Quire – 7th
See separate blog post for full details.
Harvest Festival – Sunday 8th
Festivals are a good opportunity to give thanks to God for all he has
provided. Our Harvest Festival Service
will be one of celebration, suitable for all ages (although not strictly one of
our All Age services). Our Rainbows,
Brownies and Guides will be present and taking part in the service. You are invited to bring along non-perishable
goods that will be donated to Christian Kitchen. Or, if you have grown some vegetables or
fruit, or are a baker (bread, cakes, pies), bring those along and we’ll auction
them off at the end of the service. That
money will be donated to a charity to support their work.
All Saints All Age Service – 5th
All Age All Saints service is a lively affair!
Starting at 10.00 am and lasting an hour, come and learn about what it
means to be a saint! Following this
service, starting at 12.00 noon, we have a short, quiet, reflective All Souls
service, at which we remember those who we love but see no more. There is an opportunity to have names of the
departed read out and to light a candle in their memory.
Remembrance Sunday – 12th
this solemn service, we remember and give thanks for all who have fought and
lost their lives in past (and present) conflicts.
Advent Sunday 3rd
last All Age service of the year, we enter the season of Advent – preparing and
waiting for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Other events that are going on:
Church service (Parish Eucharist) @ 10.00 am
church building will be open from 6.00 pm every Wednesday. Please pop in and take a look around, feel
free to spend time praying, lighting a candle or simply sheltering from the
7.00 pm every Wednesday there will be a short evening prayer lasting no more
than 30 minutes.
Wednesday Study Group
St Peter’s have recently started a study group; we discuss the sermon
preached on the previous Sunday morning to see how it relates to our lives. So if you missed the service on Sunday, or
you cannot make Sunday mornings and simply want to delve more deeply into the
sermon then this is the ideal group for you.
The sessions starts at 7:30 pm in church; there is an option to meet
outside the Peterhouse Community Centre at 7:15 pm and take the short walk to
St Peter’s church building together.
