Use time and talents

Give your time and skill

'Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others,
faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.'
1 Peter 4:10

St Peter’s is a Christian community made up of families and individuals from all walks of life. The Bible tells us that just as one body has many different parts, it is the combination of many people’s different gifts that make the Church function. Our corporate life and Christian witness together is only possible through the active generosity of people in sharing their time, skill and resources.

Below are a list of ministries that you may wish to get involved in, but please do not feel pressured to sign up, as at the end of the day, the motivation to serve must come from God and not us.

If you would like to get involved please speak to the churchwarden.
