No one really likes talking about money. It’s not a popular subject. But we just wanted to draw your attention to a way of giving away money FOR FREE! Easy money!
If you shop on the internet, you can raise cash donations for a range of charities (including St Peter’s) using a company called Easy Fundraising. It’s dead simple and doesn’t cost you a penny. If you pay tax you can even gift aid the donations you raise making them worth even more without it costing you a penny.
How! How! I hear you ask, just click on this link and sign up with easyfundraising and help your favourite church do more for nothing!
Last night at Connect we watched this video:
It’s great! We then discussed questions like ‘Does the Bible story continue today?’ and ‘Why did God reveal God’s self through the story of one nation?’. We didn’t have all the answers but it was a great conversation, you can join in too Wednesdays, 7.30 for 8 at the Vicarage.
Our harvest festival is on Sunday 1st October 2017. You can come for a traditional service at 9.30 or a more informal celebration at 11am. Please bring with you something you’ve grown yourself, or something in a tin or packet we can pass on to the Doncaster Foodbank. See you then!
This Sunday (13th August) after our 11am service we’re having a bbq in the Vicarage garden. We’ll provide the sausages and bread, you bring salads, drinks and puddings!
See you there!
This Sunday is our Pentecost Picnic in the Vicarage garden at 12noon, straight after the 11am service. There will be a bouncy castle and tea, coffee and squash will be provided. Bring something to eat and something to sit on and wine or beer if that’s what you want to drink…
But before that we have our Church Prayer Meeting on Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. We’ll be using the second session of the Prayer Course and then praying together. It would be great to see you there!
We’ve got lots of great events coming up too. A St Peter’s Day service on the 29th June, The Howard Scarborough Memorial Concert on the 1st July, Strawberry Tea on the 2nd July, we’ll be at Bentley Bonanza on the 9th July and the 15th July is our Bond Ball! Phew! Get the dates in your diary and come along and enjoy yourselves.

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. Come and remember with us at St Peter’s.
Our 9.30 service will be held with the Royal British Legion, with a collection for the Poppy Appeal. Following this service the parade will make it’s way to St Philip and St James New Bentley for an act of remembrance at 11am.
Our 11am service will start earlier, at 10.55am so that we can observe the silence at 11am too.
At 12noon, the parade returns to St Peter’s and soup and refreshments will be served in the Church Hall.
Finally at 4pm, there will be a short service of Holy Communion for any who would like it at St Peter’s.
Come and join with us as we remember those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
There’s loads going on at St Peter’s tomorrow morning.
There are two services tomorrow morning, one at 9.30 (traditional) and one at 11am (informal). We are hugely blessed to have The Archdeacon of Doncaster (The Venerable Steve Wilcockson) is joining us at both services and he will be preaching for us.
After the second service we’re having a joint lunch and light party in the Community Hall.
The most important thing though, is to remember to put your clocks back an hour, or you’ll be VERY early for everything!
See you tomorrow!
