Rembrandt – Simeon in the Temple

Rembrandt – Simeon in the Temple Rembrandt - Simeon

Last Sunday was Candlemas and our first United Service at St Peter’s. In his sermon, Jonathan mentions a picture by Rembrandt of Simeon holding the baby Jesus (with Hannah just behind him).

On Sunday 30th January we hosted our first United Service.

Food Bank Thanks

Food Bank Thanks

On Sunday 5th December our food bank donations were taken to St Charles’ Church, Grange-over-Sands. It was nice to get a ‘Thank You’ and to be reassured of the true worth of valuable work. We extend our sincere thanks to those working at the sharp end; those who do all the really hard work to […]

Community Carols

Community Carols

Tuesday evening (14th December) saw our first gathering to sing Christmas carols in our parish community. It was very gratifying to have such a great turn out. About 25 singers assembled. The mulled cider (provided by John Hibbert) went down very well and probably helped us overcome our inhibitions – singing ‘a cappella’ is not […]
