SUNDAY SERVICES ACROSS THE BENEFICE ARE CHANGING………

The time and pattern of Sunday services across the Benefice have changed, with services being held on a more regular basis.

Please be aware that in the future all Eucharist Services will begin at 10.30am.

 

 

The wearing of face masks in church

In the light of the current rise in Covid cases throughout the country, St Peter’s would appreciate the congregation wearing face-masks when moving around in church. Once seated face-masks may be removed. Thank you all for your cooperation over this.

 

The church now open every day!

St Peter’s Church will be open every day. Groups wishing to use the church will need to notify Kay which days they would like to use the church, in order to avoid possible clashes.

HEALTH AND SAFETY OFFICER REQUIRED

Eric Anderson, who has been St Peter’s Health and Safety Officer for many years, feels that he is no longer able to continue in the role. Eric’s work for St Peter’s has been invaluable. If anyone is interested in taking on this role, Eric is prepared to give them all the assistance required to fulfil the job. Would any interested person please contact either Deanne or Kay as soon as possible. Thank you.

We have recently sent women’s and children’s clothes to the Pathway refuge in Lichfield as they can once more accept these items. We can also resume collecting toiletries for the women and children there. Please put in the marked box at the back of church.

 

Church tubs

It’s that time of year again when we need to think about replanting the church tubs for our autumn display. We would be very grateful for any donations towards  buying the plants.
