    Don't forget the St Peter's Pancake Party at 6pm this evening. All ages welcome for party games and pancakes before we get down to the serious business of Lent!
    We've got a lovely team of volunteers making pancakes in advance, but if you can bring some pancake toppings to share, that will add to the fun. Friends from across the Team are welcome to join us.

    Our Music Director is (sadly) leaving us for personal reasons, so St Peter's is looking for an excellent organist and choir director to take us on to the next stage of our musical life and ministry. We are looking for a great colleague to work collaboratively with the Rector and others, providing musical leadership that enhances our mission and enriches our worship. [ 64 more words ]
