Our Associate Vicar, the Rev. Marcus Brown, writes:

The Church continues to be a quiet and safe haven for villagers and visitors seeking peace in the middle of a hectic life and while this hot weather continues, a cool sanctuary in which to think and pray It would not be such an attraction without the myriad of faithful supporters who clean the building and fill it with the most stunning flower arrangements.  
Together with the rewards there are always problems with looking after an old building. We have had an oil spill, and the lintel to our side door is not as sound as it should be, so we will be looking at fund-raising opportunities in the village to help with the remedial work in putting these issues to rights. We are grateful to Maureen Ford and Jenny Brown for raising over £2,700 for the church through ‘Open Gardens’. We now have to plan for St Peter’s entire heating system to be replaced.
The support we have been offered in getting our bells back to a position where all six of them can be pealed, whereas at the moment only three can be chimed, continues apace. Conservation and structural engineers have surveyed the church tower and one bell hanger has looked at our bells with a view to repairing and rehanging them.
Worship continues in St Peter’s for the first thee Sunday’s of the month and our congregation remains steady but all are welcome whatever their previous experience of worshipping together has been – good, bad, or indifferent!
