This year many things have changed in the way we do them – this Remembrance Sunday, Acts of Remembrance and the Poppy Appeal will also be different this year – many have had to be cancelled or alternatives found.
One initiative we can all get behind is ‘Put a Poppy in the Window’. Whether free-hand or printed out – display a poppy/poppies in your windows will show “we will remember them.”
This is going to be a little different this year, but sponsor packs are available from the church or email the office to get one sent. If you usually sponsor someone, this can be done via the normal way (signing their form) or online via Just Giving. Please go to http://www.b-n-h.co.uk and click on the JustGiving logo and follow the instructions.
Please contact the church via the email to request an Electoral roll form, a GDPR consent form or a nomination form for Churchwarden and we will send one to you. These need to be received by September 3rd at the latest to be included in the revised list.
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for Church of England churches to put public worship on hold and become a “different sort of church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.
In a joint letter, Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu said it was now necessary to put public services on hold until further notice.
But they said that far from having to “shut up shop”, the Church of England must face the challenge by becoming a radically different kind of church rooted in prayer and serving others.
It comes after the Government announced unprecedented peacetime measures to try to control the spread of the virus, with restrictions on public gatherings, transport and working.
Unfortunately then due to the Covid C19 Virus St Peters Church will be closed for public worship for the foreseeable future.
The Mission Team of St Peters and myself will continue to pray for our community and country and that all who might catch the virus will recover swiftly and that we will be able to resume normal life
