GROUPS AND EVENTS
Life at St Peter's isn't just about Sundays. Throughout the week and the month there are usually a variety of groups and events which fill community life and in which people both serve and learn together.
Some of these remain suspended or are happening online because of the pandemic.
Do see also the specific events and groups which address Wellbeing on the dedicated page.
Growing in faith
Three groups meet regularly in people's homes to help people study the Bible, pray together and learn how to live out faith in Jesus. One of these 'Growing Together' meets on a Tuesday morning twice a month, the other two also meet twice a month on Wednesday evenings. Online only at the moment.
Alpha is for anyone who's curious. The films are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
Alpha runs twice a year for seven or eight weeks on Wednesday evenings. Has been online only in 2021, but we're hoping to gather in person again in 2022.
MUSIC TIME FOR MUMS AND TOTS
Songs, rhymes, instruments, actions and fun for children 0-pre-school and their carers. 45 minutes of music followed by refreshments. £1 per child (50p per additional child). 2pm every Tuesday in term time in the Church Centre.
BUMPS AND BABIES - WEIGH AND PLAY
A new group for expectant and new parents to come for a relaxed chat over a drink and biscuit to share ideas and concerns and to weigh their babies.
Bumps and Babies runs on the 2nd Monday each month during term time from 1.30 to 3pm. It costs £1.50 for mum plus bump/baby; 50p for any additional children. Join the community at facebook.com/stpetersweighandplay or contact Diane Hughes on email@example.com
For women of all ages
The Mothers' Union, a world wide society, aims to strengthen and preserve marriage and Christian family life. Meetings take place once a month. The programme provides interesting speakers, fellowship, prayer and friendship. Meeting still suspended until the new year.
Bringing people together
LUNCH FOR THOSE WHO LIVE ALONE
Every couple of months we host a bring and share lunch for anyone in Glenfield or the surrounding area who lives alone. Suspended, hoping to return in 2022.
Supporting one another
The Arches is a peer support group for anyone who has been bereaved, whether that's very recently or some time ago. Offering friendship and the chance to talk about things with others who have been through the same experience, the Arches meets on the third Monday of each month in members' homes. Currently still suspended.
