R.E. WEEK AT ST PETER’S SCHOOL & ST PETER’S CHURCH

This week was RE Week at the Village School and our Church! As well as taking Assembly there, I welcomed and lead a session about the events of Holy Week and Easter, with each Year group, as they visit the Church.  Then in Holy Week itself, having learned about it all last week, the School will come to Church for a ‘Holy Week and Easter Service’ on Wed 28 Mar at 1000. I am thrilled and excited about the whole event: hope you are too! A lot of work, but it has all been worth it!

 

SEDER SUPPER on MAUNDY THURSDAY 29 Mar 2018 at 1800 in Church

   This ‘first’ for St Peter’s Church also went very well, as we effectively looked back to the spiritual roots of the Christian Family by going through the Passover Festival, then a convivial meal, followed by the Eucharist, foot-washing, stripping of the Altar and The Watch.  The whole thing was deeply moving and helped us to understand more deeply The Last Supper as we sat around the candle-lit table together. My thanks to Rae for the monumental amount of work in cooking the meal and arranging everything in relation to the food: all this, as well as working fulltime!

MEETINGS!

Parish Assembly: Tues 03 Apr 2018 at 1930

Please make every effort to attend this meeting, which has an item on the agenda about the church ceilings which need major works, to remove plaster on the advice of architects, in order to let them dry out.  The Chancel and Sanctuary areas will be especially sensitive, careful and time consuming work, because of the possibility, highlighted by the States Heritage Department in their Dec 2017 report, of there being medieval wall paintings underneath the plaster.  I am unable to be at the meeting because of a long booked holiday in UK, so do all please try and be there on behalf of the Church. It is an exciting project!  Fr Michael.

 

AGM of the Congregation: 19 Apr 2018 at 1900

I you are one of those who are producing a report for this meeting, please could you have them with me (Fr M) by or on 12 Apr, so I can print them all off in a booklet for the meeting.

Comite de la Tresor: 22 or 23 May (TBA)

Ecclesiastical Assembly: 30 May 2018 at 1900

Parish Assembly: TBA by the Parish

ST PETERTIDE WEEKEND: 29 June - 1 July 2018

We have been contacted by Colin Le Marquand who advises that the St Peter’s Youth Club are planning to put on a fete on St. Peter’s Day weekend.   He has asked is there anyone in the congregation who wishes, on behalf of the Church, would set up and man a stall, eg selling teas and coffees – or whatever the is felt appropriate, having first consulted with Father Michael.

Pat Le Breton says, “Many thanks for your kind box collection on behalf of the Childrens Society.  We will be sending over £600 to the Society from St Peter’s Church.  Again, ‘Many thanks’ “
