Thy Kingdom Come

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling people to pray between Ascension day and Pentecost, the 10-20th May 2018.  We want to join in at St Peter’s.  Keep an eye out for materials to help us.

In particular they are calling us to pray for five people who don’t know Jesus, that they would get to know Him.  We’ve got some resources to help with that.

Keep you eyes open for more info…

Church Prayer Meeting

This week is our Church prayer meeting.  It’s tonight (Wednesday) at 7.30pm in church.  We usually pray for about an hour, but don’t worry we do different things and it’s not boring!  We believe that when we pray things happen and we’re confident that we’ll see God at work amongst us as we pray together tonight.

This Sunday (22nd April 2018)

This week at our services we’ll be thinking about Jesus, the good shepherd.  If you appreciate the traditional things in life come at 9.30am.  If you like things more informal, or you’re hoping for some children’s activities, you’ll prefer the 4pm service.

It’s also our APCM (Annual Parochial Church Meeting) at 10.45, this is important, so if you would call yourself a member of St Peter’s we’d love to see you there too!

Getting back to normal!

Easter is over, the Vicar’s had his rest and now we’re getting back to normal.  This morning we had Little Fishes.  Tomorrow (Wednesday) there is NO coffee in the carpark (sorry), but there is Connect in the evening, 7.30 for 8 in Sprotbrough (call the office if you need the address).  Morning Prayer on Friday  morning and services as usual on Sunday, 9.30am and 4pm.  Next week everything is back to normal!

Easter Sunday

Tomorrow is Easter Day! Jesus is alive and we’ll have services of celebration at 9.30am (traditional) and 4.00pm (informal with activities for children). We can promise chocolate, party poppers and a great atmosphere. Doors open at 3.45pm for the 4pm service.

See you tomorrow!!

Good Friday

Today is Good Friday.  We remember the death of Jesus.  Yesterday we remembered his betrayal, today we remember his sacrifice.

The church will be open for quiet reflection between noon and 3pm.  There will be two acts of worship during that time.  The Way of the Cross  (also known as Stations of the Cross) at 1pm and The Good Friday Liturgy at 2pm. Feel free to come and go as you please.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday is the day we remember the last supper in church.  Tonight we will eat a meal together like the disciples did before we take communion in Church and sit and watch and wait with Jesus.  The service starts at 5.30pm in the community hall, bring something to share, you may need to leave after the meal (and that’s OK) at 6.30, or after communion (about 7pm) or at any time during the watch which will finish at 8.30pm.

The times they are a changin’

Bob was right, the times they are a changin’.  It’s just less than two weeks ’til clock change day (25th March) when we’ll be changing our 11am service time to 4pm.  We hope you’ll love our new time, it’s the same fun service!  Doors open at 3.45pm for Crumpets and (maybe) even scones if you’re lucky.  See you there.
