Vocations Day

Being called by God doesn’t always lead to ordained ministry. There are so many ways to live out your faith in the life and mission of the church and wider community. If you feel God’s calling you to be or do something, then you might find an answer at the Diocese of Leicester’s forthcoming Vocations Day.

Exploring Calling For Everyone is the chance to think about how God calls us to live out our faith, to recognise our gifts, and to meet others from across the diocese serving their church and communities in a variety of ways.
Seminars throughout the day include caring for our buildings, leading worship, working with children and young people, helping others to deepen their faith, pastoral care, sharing faith, social action and caring for creation.

Revd Liz Rawlings, diocesan Discipleship and Vocations Enabler, says: “We are each called to be ‘salt and light’ in the world, to be bearers of the grace of God in the places and among the people we find ourselves.
“This day gives us the space to reflect on the opportunities and gifts we have to do this, a place where we can be inspired by others who are living their faith in a myriad of different ways and the opportunity to explore how God may be guiding us in our own unique calling.”

Exploring Calling For Everyone takes place on Saturday 10 February, 10am to 3pm, at St Martins House, Leicester.

Bell Ringing Suspended

Unfortunately, due to a broken stay on one of the bells, there will be no bell ringing at St Peter’s Church until further notice. We are sorry for the disappointment. Our team are working on fixing the issue and getting us back to normal as soon as possible.

Bugs and Hedgehogs find a home

It was a great afternoon at Muddy Church on Saturday 14 October. We read from scripture that God entrusted us with care of the environment so, as well as joining in with all of the usual Muddy Church experiences such as singing a song, exploring nature and toasting marshmallows over the fire, we made a hedgehog house to leave in the orchard. We also made some fantastic bug hotels and ladybird palaces – some to leave in the orchard, some to take home. Hopefully we’ve done just a little bit to encourage some wildlife to thrive.

Babyloss Awareness

A special service with reflective prayers and music was held on Friday 13 October to mark Babyloss awareness week. Those attending remembered the babies that were taken too soon, either before, at or shortly after birth. Names were read out and those same names were written on hearts and hung on a tree next to candles that were lit in memory. Participants were able to take a candle home to light on Sunday evening – baby loss awareness day – as part of a wave of light. The service was carefully and thoughtfully crafted by Alison, one of our Children and Family workers. In the end, the service was led by Linda, another of our Children and Family workers because Alison was unable to be present due to ill health. Thank you both for your hard work.

Welcome to the Family

During our Morning Worship at Christ Church on Sunday 24 September, we welcomed Eddie into our Church family at his baptism service. The service was led by our Associate Minister, Mel Rowley; the preacher was Revd Colin Resch and we welcomed back into our Church Revd Darren Walker who performed the baptism.
