Services in church Although our services in church are suspended the church is alive! Please continue to pray for the needs of our community, particularly our schools and Care Homes. The church is open each day for private prayer and our livestreams continue.
Sad news Rev Harold Smith passed away peacefully on Monday (1st). Harold was a faithful preacher and a Christian friend and mentor to many. His funeral will be on Friday 19th February at 3.00pm at St Edmund’s. Sadly in view of the restrictions numbers will be limited to only those invited to attend, but the service will be livestreamed.
St Peter’s Appeal We have had such an amazing response to our appeal for Ringland Church. A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed. We are almost there! For those who have kindly made a donation, if you can let Rev Paul know if you would like or are eligible for a Gift Aid form we will be able to reach our target! Rev Paul is now negotiating the tricky territories of Bat surveys, permissions and Licences (please pray for him while he is doing this!). Once we have achieved these works, including minor repairs, we will be able to apply for other grants for the major repairs to the roof, to the structure and to the stained glass.
The appeal will continue until March, because we also have the possibility of fundraising for the installation of a composting lavatory and running water. Any donations may be made by cash or by cheque payable to St Peter’s PCC Ringland and passed to Rev Paul. Thank you so much for your support.
Food Bank whilst we continue to collect food for the Norwich Foodbank there is now a local Foodbank for the local needs of Taverham, Drayton and Thorpe Marriott. We have a separate receptacle in church for these items.
Lent begins on 17th February (Ash Wednesday). We will be livestreaming a service of spiritual Communion at 10.30am and we livestream Evening Prayers at 5.00pm, as we begin to make the journey of Lent together.
