This year the St. Peter’s Lent Smartie Tube Appeal will be raising money for the Mission Aviation fellowship (MAF). Flying onto desert and jungle airstrips, lakes and rivers, tracks and roads, MAF’s light aircraft and their mission pilots go the extra miles to provide a lifeline. Working in partnership with hundreds of other Christian and relief organisations MAF enables practical help, physical healing, and spiritual hope to be delivered to many of the most remote and inaccessible communities on the planet. The young people of St. Peter’s will be collecting coins in Smartie tubes and adding them to the appeal each Sunday morning during Lent.

 

Here is a short video to give you a taste of some the good work that MAF are involved with:

 

 

Holiday Clubs are held every Christmas, Easter and Summer school holidays for 2-3 days. We are open to all primary school children from reception up to year 6. We always have lots of fun with craft activities, baking, games and stories and have become a very popular event at St.Peter’s.

Further details will be posted here and on the church Facebook page nearer to the time.

Throughout the vacancy, on Wednesdays, we will hold a Parish Office between 7:30-8:30pm each week for people to raise concerns or book baptisms or weddings etc.

Pat Pearson will be in the Church office most Thursdays from 9:30am-12:30pm and there will be answerphones on both the Vicarage (0113 253 3339) and Office (0113 218 9686) lines, which will be checked regularly.

If you’d like to get in touch with us, just fill out the contact form below and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

St Peter’s Church Hall provides the ideal venue to play indoor bowls. The group – which meets each Tuesday from 7:00 to 21:00 – has all the equipment necessary including the long green carpet mat. Meetings are a real social occasion – and although members would be the first to admit their seniority – the Group is open to all. There’s always plenty of tea, coffee, chat and laughter.

Whether you are married, single, young or old, man or woman, church attender or not you are welcome to join our Friendship Group. We enjoy fellowship, friendship and outings together and have a membership of around 30 people. The Club meets normally on the 2nd Friday of each month from 7 – 9pm. Sometimes this changes depending on what is planned.

Our programme is varied and there is something for everyone. The programme of activities can be obtained in the foyer in the church. Recent activities have included a Scottish themed night, and lunch at the Manor Golf Club at Drighlington. For any more information regarding this group please contact Barbara Lumb at St. Peter’s or contact us through the website.
