Short service at 12 noon
Traditionally, the three hours between 12 noon and 3pm are kept as the three hours of darkness, when Jesus struggled to defeat the forces of evil. We will begin this time with a short service, then continue in silence. Come and go as you please – pray quietly, think about people or situations on your mind, and offer them to the crucified Lord…
There will be brief meditations every so often during the silence, finishing at 3pm.

Annual Meeting for St Peter’s

The “Annual Parochial Church Meeting” (to give its full title) begins after a shorter Parish Eucharist. We receive the annual report and accounts, elect members to the Parochial Church Council (PCC) and reflect on the year that’s gone past.

You can vote if you’re on the church’s Electoral Roll. To join this you must either live in the parish or be a regular worshipper for 6 months or more. Please ask at church after a service for more details.

Easter Day – “He is Risen!”

Easter Day is the biggest celebration in the Christian year. Jesus Christ has defeated the forces of evil and death, and is alive for ever.
Come and see the newly lit Easter Candle being brought into the darkened church, and greet the risen Lord Jesus, whose light not even death could put out. Come and sing “Alleluia!” with us, and receive his life, in the form of bread and wine.

There is a tradition, the first time we sing the “Gloria” after Lent, to bring tambourines, rattles, shakers, even keyrings… and make as much noise as we can. Want to join in??

Easter Eve – service cancelled this year

The Easter Eve service at St Peter’s is one of the most dramatic and atmospheric services in the year. But it has not been well attended recently, and this year, with Easter falling so late, it will not be properly dark when we usually start at 8.15pm. The alternatives are to start later, making the probable attendance even smaller, or to move the lighting of the Easter candle to the Parish Eucharist on Easter Sunday morning.

So this service, regretfully, will not take place this year. But do come on Easter Sunday morning, for an atmospheric start to the service, when we light the candle and bring it into church, singing to greet the risen Lord Jesus.
