Fetes, Fairs and other Fund Raising

Currently we have tickets on sale for the Annual Restoration Trust Grand Draw. Books of tickets are also available for people to take to sell to their friends and neighbours and colleagues. Tickets are £1 each, and a book of tickets contains 5 tickets. Tickets and books of tickets are available in church and at the parish office in the Fletcher Hall. They can also be bought by emailing [email protected]  The Draw is to be made at a social evening at 7.30 p.m. on Saturday 12 November. The most recent major project of the Restoration Trust has been a long programme of work on the stained glass windows. As that nears completion we are well aware that having completed phase 1 of the roof works some years back, we now need to be making plans and raising funds to tackle a second phase of these works. And then we expect there to be a phase 3 as well.  

Our Christmas Fair will be held in our parish hall, the Fletcher Hall in Vicarage Road, M27 OWA, on Saturday 10 December from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m (poster displayed below).   

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.

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.
