We have a variety of services through the month, and welcome all ages to any of them.
The 8.00 am service is celebrated in the centenary rooms and is a service of Holy Communion. At our 10.30am service the first Sunday in each month is a service of Holy Communion and there are a variety of other services during the rest of the month. For a full list of the month’s service please look at the calendar.
The usual pattern for a month is as follows:
8.00 am Holy Communion
This is a quiet, reflective service in the centenary rooms.
This is main service at St Peter’s and is suitable for all ages. There are usually more people at this service and we try to keep them relaxed and welcoming to all ages, young and old. On a Sunday at 10.30 am the service starts with a time of all age worship. Except for our First Steps group (3-5 year olds), all the children join us in church for about 20 minutes before joining their own groups. A creche is now available for children under the age of 3 at the back of church and parents and carers may wish to make use of it at this time. However parents with small children are more than welcome to remain in church throughout the service should they wish to. The organ and the music group lead the singing.
Transport can be arranged for those, particularly the elderly, who might otherwise find it difficult to get to this service. Please contact the Hub for information about that.
After the 10.30 am service there is the opportunity to meet others over a cup of tea or coffee at the back of church following the morning service.
There are a variety of services and sessions at 6.30 pm in the centenary rooms at the back of church. Frequently this is cafe church, an informal, relaxed service with more participation, coffee and cake! About once a month we are holding a “prayer school” on Sunday evenings between 6 and 8pm. Please check the calendar for a list of what is coming up.
10.30 am Holy Communion in the Centenary Rooms. Every other week, following the Communion service there is a lunch club held in the Simon Peter Centre. On the alternate weeks there are drinks and cakes in the Hub.
