Easter services The bishop has indicated that he hopes churches will be able to hold services on Easter Day (April 4th) this year, depending on Government advice. We will plan for services as soon as we can, but this is not likely to be confirmed until the week before Easter (e two weeks after the schools reopen). Watch this space!
St Peter’s Appeal A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to the appeal. Please pray for the ministry of St Peter’s at this exciting time. The appeal will continue until the end of March, as we explore 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.
