Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day

Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day are especially important this year as we remember others who have given so much in the most difficult times.

This year our service will be held on Zoom and we hope as many people as possible will join us. If you have a computer, tablet or smartphone that can receive emails it is easy to join in. We can send you a link and all you need to do is click to email us:

You can join from 10.20am. The service will start at 10.30 sharp and we will encourage everyone to go out and stand in silence on your doorstop at 11.00am, then complete the service.

Afterwards a wreath will be laid at the war memorial, but this must be done in private.

Home prayers on Sundays…

Following the suspension of all worship in churches throughout the UK, prayers will be said at 10.30am on Sunday mornings by our Lay Reader, Maxine Johnson.
This is the time services are usually held at St. Peter’s on Sunday mornings.

You can join in with the prayers from home at the same time.
Maxine will ring the minute bell just before, to remind everyone the prayers will commence.

The prayers can also be said together as a family or by yourself at any time of the day.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
