 Harvest Festival and Back to Church Sunday

On the 6th October we held our Harvest Festival and Back to Church service.

 

The church looked wonderful, the flowers were gorgeous, the service was well received by a congregation of over 220 who enjoyed the bacon rolls and socialising in the autumn sunshine after the service. 

 

Some feedback that the Churchwardens recieved:

 

 'Thank you' for all that you have done to  make this year's Harvest Thanksgiving at St Peter's the celebration it really has been! How often do we see any church full of smiling faces across such a wide spread of ages ? 


Today has been a very special day . . . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fr. Paul and Steve Edwards take on a 5 Peaks Challenge

Steve Edwards one of our churchwardens and Fr. Paul have accepted a major challenge this summer to help raise funds for the renewal of the chancel roof.

 

St. Peter’s is the oldest Church in Formby and was consecrated in 1747.  The nave roof was completely re-slated and repaired in 2010, and this year we have to carry out major restoration to the chancel and Formby Chapel roofs at a cost of approximately £30,000.
 
To raise funds, Steve and Fr. Paul will be climbing the “5 peaks,” the highest mountains in Southern Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. 
 
If you would like to support their efforts, please donate via our Virgin Money Giving website

Encouraging Legacy Giving Seminar

In 2008 over 100,000 bequests were made in wills in a market that is worth £2billion a year. Yet, despite Christians having a very committed attitude to giving during their lifetime this doesn't translate to our legacy and will giving.

 

At a recent seminar organised by The Diocese of Liverpool to encourage legacy giving, John Smith and Andrew Greenyer from St Peter's discussed the process that St Peter's had followed in the development of it's legacy policy and information leaflet.
