R.E. Week at St Peter’s School & St Peter’s Church

As you may have gathered it is RE Week at the Village School and our Church!  

As well as taking Assembly there, I will also be welcoming and leading 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 this 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!

Stations of the Cross at 1000 on Wednesdays during Lent

Throughout Lent, STATIONS OF THE CROSS ending with Holy Communion from the Reserved Sacrament, will take place in St Peter’s on Wednesdays at 1000, beginning on 21 Feb.  The last service will now be on 21 Mar.  

The service enables us to come near to the great love of Christ for us, his people, by the congregation moving gently around the church, stopping at each picture, to reflect on what is happening in it, and to pray to God.  The whole service will take about 30/35 minutes.  Afterwards there will be coffee.

If you have never been before, do come and see what it is like.  One thing is certain: it will bring you nearer to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

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

Rae is going to cook the Roast Lamb for this meal, together with all the food that goes with it: we will re-enact the Passover meal that Jesus and his disciples met to celebrate in the upper room, on the night before his death. The meal is a happy occasion as we as friends, share this food together.  As the meal goes on there are, at various points, certain readings and prayers which are said, which will deepen our understanding and appreciation of that original occasion, but also of our own Christian Communion Service, which grew out of the Passover meal, and which we will also then share together.  After all this is warmly celebrated the tone changes, for those who wish to stay and take part in ‘The Watch’ in the Lady Chapel, as we sit or kneel in silence before the Blessed Sacrament on the altar beautifully surrounded by flowers, reminding us of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. The Watch ends at 2100. 

 Please ask Fr Michael for the Booking Form.

For catering purposes, please indicate on the form how many from your family will be coming, to this ‘first’ for St Peter’s Church!  

Forms need to be in to Father Michael or Rae, by or on Palm Sunday. Thank you.

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.

‘Last call’ for Boxes to be handed in please!  They can be left with Pat Le Breton, Oliver or a church warden if they are not at the a service.   Many thanks.

‘Dementia Awareness’ Sunday at St Peter’s Church:

15 April 2018

This is a St Peter’s Church event, not a national one.  On that day Michala from Jersey Alzheimer’s Association, will talk to us all in the 1030 Service about this subject. It will replace the Sermon, so the service will be the same length as usual.  Then whilst most of the congregation have coffee in the usual way, Michala will give a talk for 15/20mins to all the ‘Church Welcomers’ in the Lady Chapel, on particular aspects of their work in relation to this subject.

We look forward to Michala’s visit.
