Friendship and support
Whatever your age or circumstances, we'd like you to feel a sense of belonging at St Peter's. Whether you're going through a difficult time and are looking for specific support, or whether you'd like to meet new friends, or whether you just want some company now and again, we'd love to meet you. A listening service is also available for anyone who just needs to talk.
We run a monthly luncheon club for pensioners who are living alone. Running from 11.30am to 2.30pm, the club includes a freshly cooked lunch and an activity such as a quiz or slide show, along with fun and chat. Assistance with transport is available.
Mill House, a care home in Kington, hosts some of our church members for a monthly Communion service with residents.
Ladies' Fellowship is an ecumenical group meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in St Peter's Hall, from 2.30 to 4.30. It offers a mixed programme of speakers, outings and services, while also providing opportunity for friendship and mutual support.
Quest is a monthly bereavement support group for people who have lost a partner. Members find that in the trust and friendship of the group, they can say just how they are feeling, from the pain of loss through to sharing in laughter and supporting each other with prayers for comfort, courage and joy.
Many of our congregation also find long-term friends through cell groups and youth activities. If you're lonely or new to the village, please make yourself known to us.
A flying start
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14) We’re committed to sharing the life-giving knowledge of Jesus with the next generation.
Noah’s Ark provides a simple introduction to Jesus for the very young and their parents, meeting every 2nd Monday at the village hall.
‘Open The Book’ provides children at Flyford First School with an understanding of some of the key stories of the Bible, while a church team runs weekly assemblies for children at Inkberrow First School.
All children are welcome to join us at Junior Church, whether or not their parents wish to attend church. Junior Church meets at the same time as the Sunday morning services - simply come along to St Peter's Hall. On Informal Church weeks, all children start the service in church; older children stay in church for the whole service while under-12s typically move to St Peter's Hall partway through. Although children often sit with their parents whilst in church, youth leaders are always available to ensure any unaccompanied children feel secure and included.
There is also a creche area in church, where younger children are welcome to play or draw during any service.
