We are delighted to offer two Christmas card designs featuring St Peter’s church, the first shows the church in the winter, with snow all around. The second features the ‘Shepherd’s Window’, found inside the church. A pre-Raphaelite style design, which shows the moment when the host of angels fill the skies to tell the shepherds that Jesus is born.
The front cover wording is ‘Christmas Greetings’ and the wording inside is ‘Wishing you Peace, Love and Joy’
The Christmas cards are on sale now for the church – £1 each or £9 for 10. You can buy them after the service in church on Sunday, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
A reminder that this Sunday, a special and unique event at St Peter’s takes place, following a wedding the previous day. St Peter’s is undergoing an amazing transformation today, with flowers arranged by a London florist, that will remain in the church for the community and wider audience to enjoy on Sunday. The family have generously offered this in the hope that much need funds will be raised for the upkeep of the church building.
Why not come along to enjoy this lovely display and enjoy a cream tea at the Community Hall afterwards?
Cream Teas will begin and run every Sunday afternoon from Sunday 27th June, and hopefully, until the end of September. The church will be open for visitors as usual, but to provide toilets and handwashing facilities, the Cream Teas will now be held in the Community Hall. Home made cakes and scones available for purchase as well as plants and produce.
We are delighted to tell you about a new fundraiser for St Peter’s – beautiful bookmarks, designed and produced by Northamptonshire artist, Eric Peplow.
Eric is a member of the art group at Wilbarston, and has been a supporter of St Peter’s by joining our occasional drawing mornings with Church Langton artist, Maxine Dodd.
Eric is a keen supporter of historic church buildings and has made bookmarks for several churches in Northamptonshire where he lives to help with fundraising. His generous offer to make some for St Peter’s was accepted without hesitation!
Eric visited the church again to make sketches and reference photos and then painted the final image at home. He included a name plate on the wall, which gives lovely detail to the painting. He has a printer with whom he works to produce the bookmarks.
The finishing touch is the tassel. What colour would you like? The choice was obvious, red, because it is the colour long associated with our saint, Peter. They add a sparkle that complements Eric’s delicate watercolour painting beautifully.
You can buy a bookmark for £2.00 each, when you visit the Community Hall for Cream Tea on Sunday afternoons or in church itself when open for events.
If you live further afield but would like to order a bookmark (or two, or three!) Please email email@example.com for details.
Enjoy your holiday reading and never lose your place!
