All Change!

The times they are a changin’.  On the 25th March we put our clocks forward an hour and lose an hours sleep.  But if you come to our 11am service there is good news!  The 11am is becoming the 4pm from that Sunday onwards.  Doors open for tea, coffee and biscuits at 3.45pm and the service starts at 4.  Not been for a while, or never tried out church?  This is a great opportunity to give us a go!  (We’re still on at 11am until then, so don’t be a stranger!).

Grassroots

At St Peter’s we are motivated by God’s love for us to make the world a better place.  We’re a small (but growing) church, so we partner with other organisations to make a difference, locally, nationally and internationally.  Our international partner is Grassroots.  They’re a charity based in Surrey that works in Kenya, Tanzania, India amongst other places, giving children the best start in life.  They have child sponsorship programmes from just £5 a month because their overheads are low and the money is spent on the children.

You can find out more about Grassroots on their website: grassroots.org.uk

 

Wednesday Morning Blues

No Coffee in the car park today, it’s half term (sorry).  If you’re in need of caffeine today Moona’s on the High Street do great coffee.

It’s Ash Wednesday today, which is the start of Lent.  If you’ve not decided what you’re giving up, today’s the day!  We’ve got a special service tonight at 7.30 in Church reminding us that we are not the centre of the universe.  It’s a great way to get perspective.  Part of the service is having the sign of the cross made on our foreheads with ashes – but if that really doesn’t appeal, it is optional!

 

Sticky Stick

It’s Half Term so no little fishes today (boooo).  Here’s a youtube vid to brighten your morning though, and don’t forget it’s Shrove Tuesday, more commonly known as Pancake Day.  Frying pans at the ready!
