Fetes, Fairs and other Fund Raising
UNFORTUNATELY THE CORONAVIRUS SITUATION has meant the cancellation of the 2021 Summer Fair. We hope we will be able to hold our usual Christmas Fair in 2021 (after cancellation in 2020).
<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Like most churches, in addition to the generous stewardship and giving of our regular congregation and of others in the local community, and collections at services and other donations, we need to hold a number of fund raising events in the course of a year. The money pays for the upkeep and use of our buildings, the maintenance of our ministry and mission, and the contribution we make to diocesan and national church costs - which enables the stipends and pensions of clergy and the training of future clergy, as well as many other resources and support services.</span>
Although there is no need for panic and we are in a sustainable financial situation, inevitably the Coronavirus outbreak has damaged our financial situation. There is more information on how people support Saint Peter's financially on the separate page on this achurchnearyou entry.
