Remembrance Service

The Annual Service of Remembrance takes place at St Peter’s on Sunday 11th November 2018 at 9.30am.  It will be followed by the Act of Remembrance at St Philip and St James Church on Victoria Road at 11am.

Everyone is welcome as we remember the end of the First World War 100 years ago.

the clock in St Peter’s

This is the clock mechanism in the tower at St Peter’s.  It’s been here since 1902 helping people in Bentley tell the time!  We’re aware it hasn’t been working as much as we’d like this year, but did you know it has to be wound by hand every week!  Get in touch if you’d like to know more.

alive and active

This Sunday at 9.30 and 4pm we’ll be thinking about the word of God being alive and active.  We’d love to meet you there!

This Sunday is our last 4pm service, from the following week, the 21st October, we’ll be meeting at 9.30 and 11.15am.  See you Sunday!

Harvest Bounty

Thank you to everyone who donated tins and dried goods for the foodbank.  Alec dropped our Harvest gifts in and they took a photo!  We haven’t given them Alec, just the food 😉

As you may know, we have a foodbank collection box in church all year round, so please continue to be generous in helping those who are in real difficulty.

Summer Fire

Hurrah!  This Sunday is Summer Fire in the Vicarage garden.

There will be:
* a campfire (with a fire circle for safety)
* sausages cooked over the fire
* live music
* s’mores
* nice people to chat to
* lots of fun

All this for just £1 per person.  Unbeatable value.  
The fun starts at 5pm.  Come to church first at 4pm or go straight to the Vicarage for 5.  If you’re coming, please send us a Facebook message or sms/Whatsapp the church mobile on 07490 582750 so we can make sure there’s plenty of sausages and s’mores for everyone.


We’re Back

I can’t believe it!  Saturday is the 1st September.  Our August break is over and there is loads of stuff starting up again at Church for this term.  We’re hoping and praying it will be really significant for us as a church community and for Bentley.

Keep an eye out all this week for updates on everything that’s coming.  In the meantime, have we mentioned that we’re looking for a genius Children’s and Families Worker?  Find out more here.

Summer Fire!

St Peter’s is calming down for the Summer.  We still have our Sunday services at 9.30am and 4pm every week over the summer holidays, but there are no midweek activities.

Summer Fire will be a great way to celebrate the end of the holidays and the start of term though.  Book tickets on 01302 876272 or you can SMS or WhatsApp us on our new mobile number 07490 582750.

Book on now, give yourself another thing to look forward too!
