Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer are said publicly at 9.00am and 5.30pm daily except on Sundays (see above). The church is open daily between 8.30am and 11.30am  


We welcome all visitors to our church, on a Sunday there are people sat at the back of church who will help you with any aspect of the church before or during the service. The clergy would love to have the opportunity to speak to you after the service.


Tea, coffee or soft drinks are available after Mass, there is no charge for these refreshments but any donations are always welcome 


NOTE: Safeguarding: If you have any concerns regarding the safety of children and others who are vulnerable, regardless of age, you must tell the Duty Priest and/or Fiona Hazeel, the Lay Safeguarding Officer. 




PCC Meeting Wednesday 8th November, 7.00pm at St James, please put this date in your diary as this could prove to be an important meeting!


PCC Standing Committee Meeting will be on Friday 3rd November at 7.00pm in the Vicarage, Please note new date.


 “Pop Up Café” it is hoped to run the pop up café next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at St Peter’s.  The idea is that whilst there is people about we will offer Tea (Coffee) & Toast to people as they pass the church. Any volunteers welcomed.


Ecumenical Prayers, The next meeting will be at the Oasis Centre on Friday November 17th at noon.


Christmas is coming but not before Advent! Advent is a beautiful season and yet often neglected in our hurry to get to Christmas. The days of Advent are fewer than usual this year, which gives an opportunity have a really inspiring and spiritually awakening Advent by taking on and trying something new at the beginning of this Christian year. So start thinking now what that will be and if you need any help or guidance speak to Fr David or Fr Phillip.  


 Reverse Advent Calendar The basic principle behind this idea is that we give during the weeks of advent rather than receive. For our parish it would seem a good idea for us to use this occasion to make up kits for the homeless.

Christmas Day Lunch at St Peter’s? Last year some people mentioned the possibility of having a Christmas Lunch at the church for those who would appreciate it, please let Fr David know your feelings on such an event.
