  • Flowering of hope

    St Peter's in Winter

    We have started a new initiative this week which we hope will see hope and prayer flowering in our parish over the next few weeks! As a visible sign to our local community that our building may be closed but we are still active and still praying, a poster and some knitted and crocheted flowers have been placed on the railings at the entrance to church. Passers-by are invited to email the church at a special address for prayer requests – petesprayers@gmail.com – and we will add a flower for them or someone they love – we will even email them a picture of the flower so they know which one is theirs! – and will pray for them in the Saturday morning on-line Prayer Group. We hope this will be a visible sign of hope to those passing by our church and also a means of blessing our local community by bringing them into the prayer life of the church. As a result – we are are looking for St Peter’s folk who can knit or crochet flowers  for the display! Flowers can be any style or colour – there are lots of free patterns on line but if you need a pattern, Mandy Thorlby has some and can pass them on. See the church notices this week for details of where to leave completed flowers or how to have them picked up, within social distancing restrictions.   You might like to pray as you create your flowers , you could pray for something or someone different every row. Or you might like to use this prayer to help you: “Father God, Please bless all those who see these flowers. May they be a reminder of your love, your hope and your presence with us. Amen” Whether you can make flowers or not, please pray for this initative, that it may be a real blessing and sign of hope in these times in our parish.
