Next Thursday (10th May) is Ascension Day. It’s the day 40 days after Easter when we remember Jesus rising to heaven. We will be celebrating with a special service at St Mary the Virgin Sprotbrough at 7.30pm. Amanda Barraclough will be taking the service and the preacher is Dave Berry.
Come and find out what it’s all about next Thursday evening. See you there!
Ascension Day marks the start of Thy Kingdom Come too, so start thinking about who you’re going to pray for over the 10 days!
It’s Sunday tomorrow. As usual at St Peter’s we have two services at 9.30am (traditional) and 4pm (informal with activities for children). There is coffee after the 9.30, and at 3.45, before the 4pm.
Jesus said, ‘I am the vine, you are the branches’. Together we’ll be looking at what it means for our lives to be fruitful. What does a non-fruitful life look like? How can a relationship with God make the difference.
Here’s what’s happening this week – come on and join in!

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 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!
