Call to Pray and Give
Bishop Julian has launched the Diocesan Call to Pray and Give to help individual churches raise some much needed funds during the present times. We are grateful to those who are continuing to offer to God through these times but this is an opportunity to give a one off pledge to St Peter’s Church to support us during these difficult times. We know it may not be possible for all to give, but if everyone on our Electoral roll pledged £1 a day for the period of 17 days then we could raise almost £3000. We ask you all to pray about this and pledge whatever you can.
To find out more about how you can pledge/donate please use the ‘Contact’ email on the Church website.

During Advent there was a collection box/area at the rear of church for any food donations, that will then be passed on to the Foodbank project, to help those less fortunate.
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.
Many thanks for your generosity.
We will continue to collect in church, and thank you for any further donations.
