HARVEST

Harvest was celebrated with a messy church event, the picture on the altar front shows the feeding of the 5000 made by children at messy church and the sunday School. On Saturday we had a wonderful lunch where we enjoyed the fruits of the earth with home made soup followed by apple pie. Great food , great atmosphere and good fellowship.

We gave thanks to God at the Sunday services when contibutions of food were brought . Our collection was to enable people in Africa to have clean water . Rachel's sermon was illustrated by Gary as the scales of justice and the children showing how we can help balance these scales.

Teddy Bear parachute jump and picnic

In it’s fourteenth year and still popular with all ages. The young, the not so young, and the oldies came with their beloved  teddies  and watched with trepidation as their teds jumped from the tower with some help from two kind gentlemen. Some very brave bears then went on to fly down the zipwire  It was  an ideal day for intrepid teddies to enjoy themselves . They came and they conquered. Their owners also had great fun on a treasure hunt, teddy hunt and playing in the sunshine as they enjoyed a picnic bag of goodies.

Farewell to Nicki

on 13th August we said goodbye to Nicki . She had been with us for three years and both she and Julian bcame very much a part of  St. Peter';s family.

We had a beautiful service of sung evensong led by Nicki followed by presentation of gifts, a white rose bush to remind them of their time in Yorkshire , a "bunch" of wine for Julian, a picture of St Peter's Church and a shimmering cream and gold chasuble.

Rachel then annointed Nicki and Julian with oil before we sent them on their way with our blessing.

To finish every one tucked into cheese and biscuits, wine and of course a very good celebration cake.
