  Readings: 1 John 1:1-22 and John 20:19-end

    Collect:  Risen Christ, for whom no door is locked, no entrance barred:
open the doors 
of our hearts, that we may seek the good of others
and walk 
the joyful road of sacrifice and peace, to the praise of God the Father. Amen.

Please be aware that services in our buildings will look and feel very different, face coverings must be worn, no refreshments or singing is allowed but this is an opportunity to worship together in a new way. 

A few general but important considerations. Please: Wear a face covering when in church, wait to be directed to an allocated seat, give your name for track and trace, use the offering plate at the back as it will not be passed (contactless payment will be available in St Peter's), maintain social distancing, be kind.

 Smiles Virtual Mission Trips.Smiles foundation logo

There are a number of us in the Parish who are poised to go on Mission Trips to Smiles in Romania once it is possible. It is now over twelve months since people have been able to take part in these trips and they are sorely missed by the team in Romania. It will be at least June before the trips can restart so in the meantime there are three Virtual Mission Trips organised. This is an excellent way to find out what a Mission Trip involves and perhaps encourage you to take the next step of joining a real trip once it becomes possible. Follow this link to the Smiles Website to find out more: https://www.thesmilesfoundation.org/2021-virtual-mission-trips/
