WORSHIP AT ST PETER'S

We would love to welcome you to any of our services. We have lifted all restrictions we had in place for the pandemic. However, everyone is invited to take precautions in order to feel safer if they wish. You might like to see our document on 'What to expect in church' so you know what to expect.

 

Services at St Peter's

10.30 am on SUNDAYS

This is the main service at St Peter's - at least in terms of numbers attending. Our church family is a family of all ages. It is our aim to help people of all ages and outlooks to worship God, and we certainly give a warm welcome to everyone.

We offer a Sunday Club in the hall and a children's area for any children who may wish to stay in church.

On three Sundays in the month (the 1st, the 3rd and the 4th), this service is Holy Communion (AKA 'The Eucharist', 'The Mass', 'The Lord's Supper').  We follow a printed order of service, though with some freedom and flexibility, and we sing hymns and songs accompanied by the organ and choir. The service is in modern English (no 'thee' and 'thou')  but is quite traditional in style.  Everyone is encouraged to come forward at the point when Holy Communion (consecrated bread and wine) is distributed.  Those who are confirmed or who receive communion in their own church - whatever denomination that may be - are welcome to receive communion. You are also welcome to receive a blessing. The service lasts just over an hour.

On the 2nd Sunday in the month we usually have 'All-Age Worship' (we call it Family Communion).  This service is more informal and shorter (an hour or less). The service is based on a theme, with readings, prayers, songs and a talk.

Every Sunday we have REFRESHMENTS after the 10.30 am service in the Hall - a good chance to meet other members of the congregation.

 

10.30am on Thursdays

This service of Holy Communion is in traditional language. It is a said service with no hymns. There are usually around 12 people at the service.

 

NEW PEOPLE ARE WELCOME AT ALL THESE SERVICES, WHETHER OT NOT THEY HAVE BEEN TO CHURCH BEFORE....WE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A CLEAR ORDER OF SERVICE TO FOLLOW, AND OUR AIM IS TO MAKE ST PETER'S FEEL LIKE YOUR CHURCH.
