Patronal Festival - Sunday 1st July 2018
This will be a great celebration for our parish as we mark St Peter’s Day, our patron saint’s festival, and welcome our new curate, Phil Price, and his family. The events are:
8am Holy Communion
10am Festival Communion for St Peter’s Day
11.10am Tea and coffee in church
There will be activities for all ages during this time.
12 noon Buffet Lunch in the Hall
Following the example of a recent Royal Wedding, lunch will be a finger buffet. Please sign the list at the back of church if you will be attending and also fill in the separate list to indicate the food you will be providing.
6.30pm Holy Communion – a quiet, said service to end the day
Please keep all the Price family in your prayers as they move to join us and do share worship and fellowship with us on this special day.
