Changes to Services at St. Peter’s
The PCC at its July Meeting agreed to make some changes to the pattern of Services at St. Peter’s from September 2018. These will mainly affect services at 6.30pm on a Sunday.
The PCC & Clergy remain committed to continuing with a 6.30pm Service at St. Peter but believe that there is a need to offer some variety of Evening Service. To this end it has been agreed to adopt the following pattern:
1st & 3rd Sunday Evensong
2nd Sunday Holy Communion
4th Sunday Contemporary Worship
using liturgy for example from the Taize & Iona Communities
5th Sunday United Service with Wilpshire Methodist Church
We will also continue to have Choral Services at Advent, Christmas & Passiontide.
A small change will also be made to the pattern of 10.30am Services as follows:
1st,3rd & 4th Sunday Holy Communion
2nd Sunday Family & Parade Service
5th Sunday Mattins
If you have any questions about this please speak to Martin.
Hello all at Salesbury, St Peter,
Mairi, Lydia and I are delighted to introduce ourselves as we move to the area and as I come to be your new curate!
This summer I started my new role as Bishop’s Chaplain, however, as I have not quite finished my curacy yet, I needed a new church to become ‘home’ for a little while. I was delighted to meet Martin and Sue, and I am really looking forward to supporting Martin in his ministry here whilst 'learning the ropes' from him.
In church terms I particularly enjoy getting to know people and their passions as well as preaching. Outside of church you will most likely see me walking the dog, eating out and watching rugby wherever possible.
A mix of diocesan responsibilities, IME training and other things may limit my church involvement in some ways, however we are really looking forward to getting involved in the day-to-day life of the church as well as Sunday services as much as we can.
Please do come and talk to us and let us get to know you. Mairi will be working in Salesbury school as a teaching assistant and Lydia will start year 3 at St Leonard’s in Langho, where we will be living.
We hope and pray that this will be a blessed and enjoyable time for us and for the church!
In your service and in His,
Sam, Mairi and Lydia Cheesman

remember, please add their names to the list at the
back of church.

Further details and a list of the type of suitable food items are available in church
Over the Advent period we managed to collect enough food to send 8 boxes to the Foodbank.
