Journey in Faith - RCIA
This group is for those who wish to
enquire about the Catholic Church or want to become Catholics, and for
those who are already Catholics but want to deepen their faith.
"Journey in Faith" meets as advertised in the Newsletter.
Administrator: John Greenrod.
Justice and Peace
The group meets on the first
Tuesday of each
month at St Peter's with members from both St Peter's and Good Shepherd
and also from other Christian churches. Anyone can join the group.
People are encouraged to come to any meeting just to see what goes on -
with no commitment to join.
The group's programme is planned to include Third World problems, human
rights issues, national issues of social justice and questions related
to international peace. The object is to act - not just to talk - and
to offer parishioners ways in which they can share their resources with
less disadvantaged people and contribute in other practical ways to
greater justice in the world.
Chair: Marie Quarman.
11 Up Youth Group
The group meets in St Peter’s Hall
Mondays during term time 7.00 - 8.30pm. They focus on the eleven
to fourteen age range. The programme for the current term is usually
displayed on the St Peter’s Church notice board.
The Parish welcomes and encourages
girls aged nine and above to join the team of servers at both our
churches. Contact: Deacon Cyril.
Many of our parishioners serve the community as readers and Special
Ministers of the Eucharist. These ministries are undertaken on a rota
basis. There is a co-ordinator for each team.
Our enthusiastic choir at St Peter's leads the hymn singing
at most Sunday 10.30am Masses. We also sing psalms, Mass parts and
motets/anthems on one Sunday each month, and at major feasts and special
Masses. By arrangement, the choir can also provide music at weddings,
baptisms and funerals.
Practices are held on the second Tuesday of
each month, from 8.00pm to 9.00pm, at St Peter's. We welcome new members -
no previous experience required, and no audition! Contact Mary Hannant

and the wider community. These include: church cleaners, flower
arrangers, money counters, gardeners, office helpers and many
