Dear Church Family,
This week has been a time of planning and preparation for the coming term – admittedly more in hope than expectation! It seems that as new cases of Coronavirus continue to rise, we might do well to anticipate some restrictions on our movement and liberty once again. However, the PCC and I felt it best that we put plans in place for both worship and social events up until the end of 2020.
Here are some dates for your diaries:
Harvest - Sunday 11th October
St Peter’s 9.30am: Live Streamed Holy Communion
All Saints’ 11.15am: Morning Prayer
We are collecting for Christian Aid and The Daily Bread Café. Donation envelopes will be available next week and food can be delivered to St Peter’s from Monday 5th October.
All Saints Day - Sunday 1st November
St Peter’s 9.30am: Live Streamed Holy Communion Patronal Festival
All Saints’ 11.15am: Holy Communion Patronal Festival

St Peter’s 10am: Live Streamed Morning Worship
The APCM will take place on Sunday 27th September, at St Peter’s at 11am. Please note that there will be no 11.15am service at All Saints’ on this day – my apologies for this.
For those of you who are unaware of what an APCM is, it is a chance to review the previous calendar year (2019) and the time when new churchwardens and PCC members are elected to serve the parish. All are welcome to attend, and Electoral Roll members are eligible to vote if required to do so.
Thank you for the nominations that have been put forward this week. It looks like we will have an exciting new PCC for the coming year!
