All are welcome to join our 5-week study course – Thursdays at 7.30 pm in St Peter’s Church, Gustard Wood. Our second session will be on 28th April. The course is based on the book ‘There Is No Planet B’ by Mike Berners-Lee. The book is introduced as follows:

Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics, pandemics – the list of concerns seems endless. But what is most pressing, and what should we do first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? How can we fly in a low-carbon world? How can we take control of technology? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do, as individuals?

Over the next three sessions, we will look closely at Food, Transport and Energy respectively. In the last session we shall look at the Christian perspective and what it means.

Each session will involve both presentations and discussion The sessions are open to all and prior knowledge is not required although it might be helpful to have a copy of the book and to have read the relevant sections in advance. Please contact Roger for details: If you are unable to attend but wish to receive weekly notes from the study course, please let Roger know.

An Important Date!
Annual Parochial Church Meeting
Wednesday 4th May at St. Peter’s at 7:30 pm
All are welcome at our APCM (refreshments provided) which offers you a report on Church activities in 2021 and the financial statements for that year. As we emerge from a period of uncertainty, we must look to the future as our churches come back to life.

We are very keen to be strengthened by new faces on our Parochial Church Council (PCC). The “Job Description” is people committed to our new vision of “Living God’s Love in our Community” and able to help us work so we can make a difference for the people of Wheathampstead and Gustard Wood. PCC Members are leaders in our church and trustees of our charity.  More info from Stephen (PCC Secretary) 01727 863490
