St Peter’s Church

Benefice of Dunton, Wrestlingworth and Eyeworth – Reverend Liz Lavelle

It is now a year since Revd. Liz joined us.  With a passion for the importance of school ministry, she takes weekly Collective Worship in both church schools, and it is wonderful to have the whole of Wrestlingworth School in St Peter’s church on Thursday afternoons.

Thanks to the Rainbow Rock team, the diocesan ‘Values’ for School Collective Worship (most recently ‘Communication’, ‘Service’, and ‘Trust’) are reflected in the informative and eye-catching displays in this special area of the church.

At St Peter’s, along with the other churches in the Benefice, we are currently reviewing and updating our Mission Action Plan and Vision for the future.  A Vision/Mission morning for all 3 churches is taking place on 9th September, as we look to the future flourishing of our churches.

Fundamentally important is our outreach and welcome within the local community. Perhaps there is something new or different that you would like to see happening at your village church, or that you would like to get involved with? If so, please do let us know!

We celebrated our Patronal festival at the end of June, and it was wonderful to see the St Peter flag (beautifully restored to its former glory) flying once again from the tower – and thanks goes out to our new tower volunteers from the village!

Please come and say Hello to us at our stall at the Goodwill Annual Fete on Saturday afternoon September 2nd in the field behind The Chequers.
