Children and Families Worker

Anne Dorman
St Peter's is delighted to welcome Anne Dorman as our new Children’s and Families’ Worker. Anne is married to Andrew, our new Treasurer who together have two grown-up daughters and two labradors, and have lived in Oxford since 2004. Anne has previously worked in the NHS as both a childrens and adults doctor. She was in children’s ministry at Wokingham Baptist, Ramsbury, St Andrew’s Oxford and more recently here at St Peter’s. Anne loves music, stories, food, "getting creatively messy with colour, glitter and glue" and exploring Bible stories in ways that are fun for children. "I am looking forward to working with the team here and to meeting you and your family."

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
