On Sunday 6th November at 4pm, St Peter's will be holding a special service where those who have been bereaved can remember those they have loved before God. During the service the names of those being remembered will be read out and there will be a time to light a candle in memory of a loved one. All are welcome at this quiet service of reflection and thanksgiving, whether recently bereaved or giving thanks for the lives of those who have died many years ago. Refreshments will be served at the end of the service and there will be time to share memories of those we have loved but who rest now with God.

cambellThis Saturday, 15th October at St Peter's there is a concert of piano music, not to be missed! Nearly 3 years ago an amazing young pianist from Tisbury, Alexander Chapman Campbell, launched his debut album "Sketches of Light" in a concert at St Peter's, inspired by time spent in North of Scotland, Alexander has now moved there and released his 2nd album "Portraits of Earth" in March, which is now the basis of a UK tour. He is performing at Manchester Cathedral on 22nd October but the week before, on the 15th, he has asked to return to St Peter's for a concert " where it all began ". This is a unique opportunity to hear this extraordinary talent, whose music is hauntingly beautiful and has been described as "a glimpse of something new". The concert will be at 7.30pm, Tickets £10 (£8 concession) can be obtained on his website www.alexanderchapmancampbell.com or at the door on the night.

St Peter's Harvest Festival service took place on 2nd October, and regular worshippers were joined by children from Shaftesbury Primary School with their parents. Singing was led by the worship band, and in addition we were treated to dancing to the music "Harvest Samba", by four pupils, and led in the singing of "Autumn Days" by the school choir. Holly and Sophie, two of our regular 9 year old worshippers and members of the worship band, shared the 2nd reading. The Rector was assisted in her talk by a number of children. During the service we also welcomed seven-month old Austin Snell after his recent baptism at the church. Our harvest gifts were sent to the Gillingham Food bank.
