There’s lots going on online at St Peter’s this weekend – you might even need a diary to remember it all!
On Saturday evening (May 16) we’ll be having a bit of fun together over on the Zoom meeting platform, and hopefully raising some funds for Christian Aid Week, by having an Online Quiz night. This will start at 7pm and last around an hour and you can find more details about how to join in here.
On Sunday morning, you have a choice! The Church of England’s weekly national service will take place over on their website here at 9am – no details of this week’s have been published yet but we’ll update here when we know more.
At 10.30am this week on our YourTube channel, we will be having our weekly St Peter’s service which this week will be a special Family Communion for Christian Aid Week. You can download the service order to follow and join in with the prayers and songs here. There will be praise and prayer with Viv and a talk and Holy Commuinion from John, but you can also find out more about Christian Aid’s work, there will be a special guest appearance from our friend and mission partner Garry Ion and a Bible story with the fanstastic Helen Scott. Lots to look forward to!
In the afternoon, Messy Church online will be happening at 3.30pm over on our Facebook page when Rachel and Jess will have lots of messy fun to look forward to.
In the evening next week, there is an opportunity to join together with Christians from across Shipley when Shipley Christians Together will be broadcasting a special joint service for Christain Aid Week, which you’ll be able to find over on their new YouTube channel here! Note this service is on SCT’s YouTube channel and not St Peter’s – use the links in the text above and you’ll end up in the right place! Check out the new SCT channel in advance of the service – there is a message from SCT Chair Keith Jones from Shipley Baptists and several John Froud songs to enjoy before the service appears!
The most important thing to do this week though is to donate to Christian Aid if you can. As they can’t undertake a lot of the fundraising activities they usually would during Christian Aid week, donating online to keep their important work going is vital. Any amount, not matter how small will help. Visit the Christian Aid website here to find out more about all the ways you can give.
