Our Church and the community

 

Tots at Ten


A group for preschool children and their carers that meets in the church hall on Lower Church Street at 10.00am every Tuesday in term time. Everyone welcome. Just come and meet us. An optional informal time in church is held at 11.00a.m.



Oasis Prayer group


This ecumenical  meeting is held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm Rearsby Convent. Contact the vicar for more details.



The Church Choir


The choir are led by a professional music teacher. They practise early on Friday evenings (6.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.) and sing at the 10.00 a.m. Mass on Sunday mornings and at special services throughout the year. Contact the vicar for more details. 



Bell ringing


The team of bell ringers practise on Friday evenings at 7.45 p.m. and are always on the lookout for new volunteers who would like to learn this skill. Contact the vicar for more details. 



St Peter and St Paul's School


The school holds several services in the church each year. We are delighted that the school come at Easter, for their Leavers' service, at Harvest and at Christmas.



Other special events


The church has an active social Committee who organise events for all age groups throughout the year. In the past two years we've held a 'Last Night of the Proms' concert, a 'Swinging Sixties' evening, a Church Open Day with various displays, a Coronation 'street party', a Christmas Tree Festival and various other events. Some of these have been fund-raising events (both for church funds and for charities) and some were purely social.


The local community are warmly invited to join us at any time and especially at festive times of the year; for example at Harvest Festival and our very well attended traditional Christmas Eve Carol Service.
