9:30AM On the 'Third Sunday' of every month
An informal relaxed service for all ages, usually held in the Hall (and not, therefore, livestreamed). Once a month, at 9:30 on the 'Third Sunday', we set out the chairs, tables and carpets in the Hall so there's plenty of room for the kids to run around if they need to!
Lots of activities for all ages (quiet reflection and teaching for those who want, as well as arts and crafts and 'stuff'!)
(Now on holiday until the Autumn - watch this space)
Our main Sunday service
9:30AM Every Sunday
Our main service celebrates Communion in contemporary language ('Common Worship'), and starts at 9.30. There are always activities for children. Following demand, we now run TWO 'Main Services' (at 9:30 AND at 11:00) ! (THIS ALSO HELPS TO KEEP YOU Covid-safe).
On the Third Sunday of each month we follow a modern, informal style of worship (our "Switch" service), often in the Hall where there is more room to experiment and run around. Then there is a simple service of Communion with hymns at 11:00 …..
On the Fifth Sunday of the month we usually have 'Café Style' Communion, starting with coffee and pastries, and sharing bread and wine around small tables.
Coffee for All
10:30AM Every Sunday
Between the regular 9:30 service and the 11:00 service, we serve coffee (Fairtrade, naturally, or tea, squash and biscuits or sometimes cake) “for all” so that our congregation(s) can relax, meet each other, and chat.
11 o'clock Communion
11:00AM Monthly, 3rd Sunday of each month
On the Third Sunday of each month there is a later short service of communion, with music, using the Common Worship format at 11:00 in church (but no choir).
Informal First Sunday Worship
11:00AM Every First Sunday of the month
Our new informal all-age worship service - modern worship songs and a relaxed atmosphere. Now happening online as well as in church, and we look forward to you coming for coffee in the Hall from 10:30 before the Navigate service.
(Now on holiday until the Autumn - watch for announcements!)
Informal Second Sunday Worship
11:00AM Second Sunday of each month
An all age interactive worship service with ‘live music’ which used to happen in the afternoons, but is now an 11:00 morning service! See our Facebook page for what’s happening this month, or ask to go on the mailing list.
(Now on holiday until the autumn- watch this space)
6:00PM First Sunday of every month
Sung Evensong, with choir! Using the Book of Common Prayer.
Midweek Morning Communion
A short said service - a friendly mid-week devotional and social top-up. This now starts at 10:30 rather than 9:30 as this seems to make it easier to come and join in. During the COVID period, we were meeting online for a short service of prayer and then a chat with friends ... using Zoom! We are now pleased to say we have restarted our live ‘in-person’ midweek services, in church, every Wednesday at 10:30am.
Warm Welcome Hub
The church - as part of an initiative by all the churches in Balsall & Berkswell through CTTB, will be opening every Thursday afternoon, with hot drinks and biscuits available, during the winter to help people suffering from the cold and the rising costs of energy. There will be books and games, and an opportunity to spend time in company, and maybe some other information made available. On the 'Second Thursday' this will coincide with the 'Tea and Cakes' - but start earlier and end later! The other churches will be open on other mornings (or afternoons). (see also at this link)
Tea and Cake at St Peter's
2:30PM On the Second Thursday of every month
An opportunity to come together and chat over tea and home made cakes in our welcoming lounge in the church, and now spilling over to use tables in the main building to ensure low density (lower Covid risk!). Accessible to all including wheelchair users.
On the other Thursday afternoons, we shall be opening as a ‘Warm Hub’ drop-in during the winter, as part of a network of these Warm Spaces across the village organised by Churches Together.
Junior choir meets every Thursday from 6.30, and Senior choir at 7.30 - new members always welcome, tuition provided! (meet in church, access via Vestry door in the carpark)
Contact Kim Rawson, Musical Director and Choirmaster, for details, or just turn up.
Teeny Tinies & Toddlers
1:30PM Weekly during termtime
Our Bumps and Babies Café (with 'Stay and Play') has been re-named and relaunched as 'Teeny Tinies & Toddlers'. They meet on Friday Afternoons during school term time for mums, dads and grandparents caring for babies, and expectant mums too! Come and enjoy a cup of tea/coffee, homemade cake, and chat whilst the babies play. There is lots of room in the Church Hall for them to run around safely too! (Home made cakes are *Back*!) (but, sorry, no school age kids! “Health and Safety”….).
Note that the coming week (Oct 28th) is Halfterm, so no session.
Sorry, there are no special events this week.
