A special message from Revd Annette Miller

The service was very special and affirming of my Ministry among you.
God bless all you do in His name.

St Peter’s PCC Jottings

St Peter’s PCC met on Monday 21st May.

During the meeting we noted that:

  • Work on the south aisle roof will start on 29th May.
    The full cost will be covered by the donation from the Audlands
    and a grant from the Rhoda Thompson Trust.
  • Lead has been stolen from the north aisle roof,
    weeks before a new roof alarm is due to be installed.
    To impede anyone returning for more lead,
    the gate opposite Heversham House is temporarily locked,
    with alternative access via the Old School.
  • The Archdeacon is meeting with the Parish Representatives
    and the Mission Community Steering Group to discuss the possibility
    of the Priest-in-Charge post being advertised as also
    leader designate for the Mission Community.
  • Work is to start on the second phase of improving the kitchen
    in the Old School.

We also agreed to:

  • Request a grant from the Rhoda Thompson Trust
    to enable digital mapping of the graveyard to commence.
  • Set up a joint church and community group
    to plan the commemoration of WW1.
  • Adopt a new privacy notice and seek the necessary consents
    from people for holding their personal information
    under the new data protection regulations.
  • Hold the next open discussion evening on 19th July,
    with subjects to include
    • WW1, and
    • ideas for the next Mission Action Plan. 

The draft minutes are available in the Dallam chapel or by email from Peter Clarke.
