The Ark comes to St Peter’s!

Whilst we are unable to run the Ark Toddler group in St Helen’s, we are running it outside at St Peter’s. Lots of space and no masks outside. Everyone welcome, it’s a very friendly group, suitable for babies and toddlers.
Every Wednesday 9.30-10.30am. Free play followed by singing.
Numbers are limited. Please email Linda at to book your place, giving the name and age of your children.
We will be continuing to run the Ark over the holidays, older siblings welcome, but bring something to do. Any extra help welcomed!

The Kimbilio school is nearly finished!

The Kimbilio Primary School building is almost finished! They hope to open in September but need your help to get the work finished on time.
They have already appointed an experienced headteacher and are now recruiting teachers. They need to raise the last bit of money to ensure they can open this September.
Today, Wednesday 14th July, Global Giving is offering match funding on all gifts over $100 via this link.
Please help if you can!




Coffee in Chancel is 10 years old in September. We have a special birthday tea planned for October 10th. You are all invited!

PS We are recruiting! Speak to Hilary 07712791625 or Sally 07792102646 If you think you could help with waitressing occasionally
