St Peter's Church wardens report

 News from St Peter’s  

  Last month we were wondering when Summer was going to begin and this last month, we’ve had some really hot days so I think we can say it is very definitely here. The grounds around the church & hall have been truly beautiful.

  On Sunday 30th June we held our Patronal Service and were delighted to welcome Rev. Jacky Darling and her husband, Bill, as she begins her ministry amongst us, we pray that God will truly bless her and us as we work together to proclaim God’s Kingdom. To date the Patronal Thank Offering we this year has been given to support the work of ‘Tearfund’ has to date raised £388.00 – thank you to all who have given so generously.

  The next Market in aid of Church funds will be held on Saturday 17th August – please see separate ad.

  The summer is the time when we particularly welcome holiday makers to Greatstone and its good to see those with holiday homes returning to spend time here and worshipping with us.

  Rita and Joe supply Fairtrade products through Traidcraft – please support this – they will be only too happy to give you a catalogue and get goods for you. Watch out for their Fairtrade Stall on the 2nd Sunday in the month.

  Our prayers during August will be for all living in Merritt Road, Children & Teahers on Holiday and the new Hall also for the work of Mission Aviation Fellowship in Liberia,South Sudan, Youth and Behind the Scenes Supporters.
