In line with Government and Church of England guidance St Peter & St John's have suspended all of their services and their groups/activities until further notice in response to the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic.
During this very challenging time for us all it is important to know that the Church of England and our church is changing, not closed. During this period we aim to keep in touch with you via our social media accounts, our webpage and by email. Our Vicar Rev. Sheila Bridge, along with others from our congregation, will be posting regular videos helping us to pray ‘together’ for those in need and for the nation. These can be found here Daily Prayers and on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/peterjohnchurch Our focus is changing and at a time like this the church should be at the forefront of showing the world how we care and look after others, not just ourselves and those whom we know. We will also be sending out information about ways in which we can help people in our community and show practical help and support to those most alone and affected by these events.
