Service for St Peter’s Day, 27th June, 2021 – John 21

We pray for Julie and Stuart as they are joined in Holy Matrimony at St Peter’s Church on Saturday 3rd July; may God richly bless them.

Next Sunday, 4th July, services will be as follows:

8am Communion at St Peter’s.

10am St Peter’s: Communion:  The Rev’d Dr Chris Steed will preside and the Rev’d Bryan Apps will preach.

12 noon: St Peter’s:  A  Service of Thanksgiving for the Life of Eric Fraser: I shall lead this service and preach.

10am St Augustin’s: Communion:  I shall preside and preach.

10.45am St Stephen’s: Communion: The Rev’d David Lund will preside and preach.

We continue to welcome to our garden (18 Wimborne Road) anyone who would like to join our mid-week Bible Study at 4pm on Wednesdays.  A group of us are getting under the surface of what St John’s Gospel is all about, using Tom Wright’s book, ‘Broken Signposts’, as our guide. Next Wednesday we shall look at ‘truth’ in St John.  Do join us.

Welcomers in all three of our lovely church buildings can help to give the right welcoming message, any this all assists in keeping the buildings open for the right purposes – as safe spaces for peace and quietness, for prayer and waiting on God.

We also need volunteers, please, for teaching children in the Sunday School for the whole Parish, held in St Peter’s during the 10am Communion.  Even if you can only offer one Sunday per month, that will be very valuable. We shall offer some basic instruction, guidelines and support. Please, have a word with me.

After the Summer, we shall start Confirmation classes again for folk of all ages – do let me know if you might be interested.

Enjoy the week!
