St. Peter's Church "E News" Friday 9th October
Dear Member of St Peter’s Church,
In this fast-changing environment, we may have to fine tune our arrangements for services. Please check each Friday for any announcements in this “E News”.
This Sunday there will be The Parish Communion Service at 9.30am. Social Distancing of “one metre plus mitigation” will be in action. Please wear a face covering and use the hand sanitiser on entry.
During the 9.30 am Service we will be holding Junior Church in the Parish Room. Invitations have been sent out in advance. Youth Group will follow straight afterwards.
Refreshments after the morning service are on hold for the moment ,today I would encourage you to stay behind afterwards for a while and “Chat in Church”.
Recorded Services are continuing with some changes:
Sunday 11th October – Holy Communion Service with music
Sunday 18th October – Holy Communion Service with music
Sunday 25th October – Half Term break: a musical interlude
Sunday 1st November – the All Souls Service including a reading of the list of names of The Faithful Departed
Sunday 8th November – A Service for Remembrance Sunday including the Act of Remembrance at The War Memorial
Considerable thanks are due to Ben Driver for producing this range of Services.
I will pray for you all in the week ahead.
Canon Tim Marwood (Vicar of Petersham)
ST PETERS ALL AGE QUIZ NIGHT - Sunday Oct 25th 5pm
In these strange and challenging Covid times we have reluctantly had to cancel our traditional Harvest parish celebration. However, we can still gather as a parish community and have some fun. This year we will be having a zoom QUIZ NIGHT.
If anyone has joined a zoom quiz night over the last few months you will understand they can be lots of fun. This will be open to all ages (Including children) and there will be questions that all generations will be able to answer.
So grab a cup of tea or a glass wine, a pen and paper and your thinking cap and join us on Sunday 25th October at 5pm from the comfort of your own home or from your families or support bubbles. It should be great fun. Please let us know if you can join us so that we can allocate people to teams (all through the wonders of technology - it will all become apparent on the day). Login in details will be sent to you.
Also if you would like to join us but not used Zoom before and not sure how to access the software and use it, do contact us and we can help you get set up and familiar with it. It is free to use. (This is the brilliant idea of Anne-Marie Lewis! – Ed)
The Zoom Prayer Group on Tuesday nights at 8 pm has started again please email the Parish Office if you wish to join.
