Get Involved

All of our services, courses and events happen in the way they do because of the people at St Peter’s give so generously of their time and skills. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to serve the church through contributing his or her gifts and time.

Everybody has gifts- things they are passionate about- and it would be good if you would think about the way in which you could use yours.

If you would like to volunteer, there are many ways to do so. If you are interested in getting involved please contact either Di Hunt: 01489 893372  dianahunt6@gmail.comor Paul Emmerson: 01489 895079

Here are some of the opportunities to get involved with at St Peters.



There are opportunities for singers and instrumentalists at our Services. Congregation members lead intercessions and read from the Bible.

The Flower team always welcomes extra help, as do those who make coffee after Services.

Bellringers welcome people to church and ring for weddings – beginners are welcome.

Everybody needs to feel cared for so we try to support each other within groups to which we belong.  However, at some time people may need extra practical help such as transport to church, or a meal if temporarily incapacitated.  Elderly persons appreciate a friendly visit for chat and ‘cuppa’.  Some people like the opportunity to welcome others to services and events or to give support to families including those bringing children for Baptism.

Ministry-Home Group


A variety of small groups provide opportunities for study - or share an interest.  Most concern learning more about our faith, which is important, but the group members also offer support to each other and share social occasions.  They take place both daytime and evening.  There are also larger groups like the Ladies Group  and Men’s Breakfast, which have Speakers and The Mothers’ Union which is a Worldwide organization (open to all in spite of its name) with the aim of supporting families.  A Men’s Prayer Group, meets fortnightly.  Children’s groups are important – see above paragraphs.

Property and Finance

Like our homes, our church building, hall and churchyard need much tlc..  When a need arises it is useful to know of people who could offer some time and skills like painting, carpentry, gardening, cleaning.  Many hands make light work.  Opportunities to help on the financial side may arise if you are able to offer expertise in this area.
