St Peter’s Discussion Session

After the 9.30 am service on Sunday 12th August.

This brief open discussion session will be an opportunity
for members of the congregation to

  • discuss any matter of interest or concern with the PCC or
  • air ideas and suggestions.

Holding the session on a Sunday morning, rather than as an evening meeting,
is experimental; we hope that as many people as possible will join us.

Return of an Evening Service at Heversham

The 6.30 pm Service of Worship will be re-introduced this month.
The service will include worship, songs, readings from the Psalms
and time of prayer, both set and open.
You are welcome to come.

Information on these organisations will be displayed in church
until the next meeting on Monday 17th September.

Discipleship Course

Monday 17th September, 7.00 pm.

A Discipleship Course will be starting for anyone interested
from St Peter’s, St Thomas’s and St John’s. I know it’s early.
but wanted to give some warning of a start date before we all disappear
for the holiday period.

The course will be monthly over ten months and based on the book Holy Habits.
It’s not proposed that this will take the place of Home Groups,
nor is it essential to be able to attend all sessions
(although I hope folks will be able to!).
More details nearer the time but meanwhile do contact me
if you want more information.
