St Peter's Church "E News", Friday 12th March
Dear Member of St Peter's ,
Thank you to those of you who kindly “attended” our Annual Meeting, mainly on zoom. The annual business of elections resulted in an almost unchanged team of wardens, officers, and PCC. A big Thank You to all of you who undertake these roles. Continuity in membership is really helpful in these current times and I am very grateful to all who are taking forward the work of St. Peter’s in any way.
I will pray for you all in the week ahead.
Canon Tim Marwood (Vicar of Petersham)
“Live” Services continue at St Peter’s Church.
As well as the lovely organ music we are enjoying the singing of a small group on the Lent Sundays. My thanks to Ben and the singers for their contribution to enhancing our worship.
(Social Distancing of “one metre plus mitigation” is in action in St Peter’s. Please wear a face covering and use the hand sanitiser on entering the church and follow the directions of the wardens to exit.)
On Mothering Sunday this weekend we will have the traditional distribution of flowers (suitably socially distanced) at the end of the service.

We will send out a recording of Communion Service from St Peter's next week.
