2Ps and a Pudding (The Farewell Tour)

2ps-15There is still room for more so why not come along to St Peter’s Church on Saturday 3rd December (6.30pm-9.30pm) for a fun filled evening of Magic, Songs and outrageous Stories (not forgetting the yummy puddings). This is likely to be the 2Peters’ final show together. Tickets are free (donations on the night to St Peter’s Winter Shelter) from Peter Strevens or Peter Massey so that they know how many puddings they will need! click here for more…

Sports Academy Holiday Club 2016

Sports Academy 2016We had a super Holiday Club for 4 mornings, writes Gill Holder. The puppets, games, challenges, memory verses, craft, prayer and ‘Mr Fit’  kept the 17 -20 children enthusiastically engaged. Many parents came for the final Thursday evening session.  The material was based on the life of David, and included themes such as our unique value to God, doing the right thing even when it is hard and God keeps us safe.

Many thanks to all the volunteers, especially our three  teenage  leaders and all those who supported us behind the scenes and in prayer. Have a look at some of the many photos of the event (there are even more on the SPSJ Facebook page: click here for more…
