Harvest Festival 1-6 Oct

We’ve much to be thankful for this year. Farmers are reporting good harvests in spite of a wet summer. Grain stores are full. Fruit trees are laden. Healthy produce is being stored for the coming winter months. And to cap it all, our countryside and gardens are sparkling in their autumGod’sn finery.

Join us at St Peter’s on Sunday 1 October at 10:00am to celebrate God’s gifts at our annual Harvest Family Service. Our children take part in the festivities, saying prayers, reading and enjoying Bible stories. Everyone is welcome to this special celebration and to join us after for tea and biscuits.

At 11:30am in the Old School Room, we are pleased to welcome Peter Ramsden, former Bishop of Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (PNG). He will give an illustrated talk about the current situation for Christians in PNG and the PNG Church Partnership, an organisation supported by St Peter’s Mission Giving.

Sunday evening at 6:30pm is a chance to enjoy some of your favourite harvest hymns at our traditional Harvest evensong. Join us for a glass of wine afterwards.

We finish our celebrations on Friday 6 October with a Harvest Supper. Tickets £7.50 or £5 (children and servers) are available from Julia Goddard, officeatstpeters@gmail.com, 01865 236094. Charles would love to hear from folks willing to offer a short turn to entertain us– thanks!

Worship at St Peter's Church

St Peter's Church

St Peter's is an open, inclusive community of people from all walks of life who are seeking to love and serve God in this parish. Anyone is welcome to join us for our services and we encourage you to do so on a regular basis. We hope you will find worship which is reverent, reflective, stilling and uplifting, and a congregation who are warm and welcoming. As you will see from the pages which follow, children are valued members of our Church. There are always activities for them at our 10am Sunday service in term time, as well as at other times.

As a Church community, we try to reflect the love of God for all his creation, as revealed in Jesus' life, death and resurrection; we try to explore the questions which life presents us with, both as individuals and as a society; and we seek to live out our faith through active service to this parish and the wider world. If you would like to join us on this journey with God and towards God - a journey of exploration, thanksgiving, celebration and reflection - you would be most welcome.

Revd Charles Draper, Vicar
