Welcome to St Peter's Church Website
From the churchwarden..
We’ve had a busy Christmas at St Peter’s, with big congregations for the Carol Service and the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Communion Services. It was especially good to welcome so many children and families for the C of E School service and the Crib Service on Christmas Eve. We also sang carols in the Globe and raised £112.50 for WaterAid.
But now all the turkeys have been cooked and fretted over, the travelling done, the visitors welcomed, the presents exchanged. Father Christmas has done his stuff, and the reindeer have taken the sleigh back to be refurbished for next year. And there’s plenty of Christmas cake and chocolate left. Not to mention mince pies. Oh dear!
Isn’t it sad that some of us have more food than we know what to do with, and others have to rely on food banks. Jo made a huge collection of socks and chocs for the Wild Goose in December - we must go on supporting it in the next year. As well as sending goods for refugees (contact Diana, 854803)
Now it’s 2017 already! How did that happen? Has another whole year really gone?
It’s been a funny old year. They all are, but this must be one of the most remarkable, whether you consider the sport, the politics, or all the famous people who’ve died, some of them sadly young.
But the winter equinox is past, the days are getting longer. Spring will soon be here.
Happy New Year!
