WELCOME TO ST PETER'S CHURCH

Serving God by serving you,
your family & the community

 

HOT OFF THE PRESS

Following guidance from the Government and the Church of England, we are pleased to announce that St Peter's will reopen for small acts of worship on Sunday 2nd August. For the safety of all, we will be restricted on numbers, so services will continue to be streamed for all those who cannot come to church.

You can find these on our Facebook page.

For further information about coming to church, including safety measures and booking for services, scroll down to our "Reopening" section.


When the church reopens, there will be no orders of service available. You will need to bring your own with you.

You can find the Original Resource pack and the Expansion Pack here.

HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR CHURCH

Generous giving is an integral part of Christian discipleship. As Paul writes, "But since you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you - see that you also excel in this grace of giving."

2 Corinthians 8:7

The Parish Giving Scheme has been set up to best manage regular donations. Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, and your money will always be used in your parish.

Through your generous commitment, we can be assured of a regular source of income, and you will benefit from a system that is secure, confidential and easy to use, supporting your church today and in the future.


You can find out more on the Parish Giving Scheme website or call 0333 002 1271 and someone will set up your direct debit for you. You will need your bank account details, as well as the following information:

Parish Name: Filton St Peter

Our PGS Code: 05 06 05 077

Lines are open Mon-Fri 9-5pm

HOPELINE - A NEW SERVICE FROM THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND

During these unique and challenging times, many of us are struggling to access church services. The Church of England has set up a freephone "hopeline" which gives you free access to prayers, hymns, sermons and even full services, and all you need is a phone. 

The freephone number is 0800 804 8044 and is available 24/7.

For more information you can visit the Church of England website.

REOPENING

Coming to Church

SUNDAY SERVICES

From 2nd August 2020

Whilst the church can now legally open for acts of public worship and certain life-event services such as weddings, baptisms and funerals, there are still many guidelines in place to ensure Governmental & Public Health Guidance is followed. The safety of clergy, volunteers, members of the congregation, and the wider community will be kept paramount. The opening of the church for small acts of worship does not mean that the church is open as normal, or that people can come and go as they wish. Strict guidelines remain in place, and those wishing to come to an act of worship must adhere to the Community Covenant, accepting that worship will look very different for some time to come.

PROTOCOL FOR REOPENING

Please read before considering coming to church

The Covid-19 Protocol for Reopening can be found here. It tells you everything you need to know, and everything you can expect to see in church, and is essential reading before coming to church. It is summarised in the Community Covenant.

BOOKING A PLACE

Booking is essential

Once you have read the Protocol for Reopening (above), follow the link to book a place for your desired service. Booking a place assumes you have read and agreed to all the points in the Community Covenant. Booking can only be done online. If you know someone who would like to come to church but does not have access to the internet to book a place, please consider adding them to your booking. Please note that booking for each service only opens a few days beforehand.

OCCASIONAL OFFICES

Baptisms

If you would like to book a baptism, in the first instance please contact faith.stpeterschurchfilton@gmail.com to find details of the next available date. You should familiarise yourself with the Covid-19 Baptism Protocol before booking.

FELLOWSHIP

The Church Hall and Coffee Shop

We understand that many of you come to St Peter's for fellowship and to meet with friends and church family. Regrettably the church can only open to provide short services, and you will be asked to go straight to your designated seat upon arrival, and leave promptly after the service. The Coffee Shop and the Church Hall remain closed for the time being and we ask you not to congregate in the car park before or after services.

WHO WE ARE

A welcoming Anglican Church with its heart in the sacraments and its place at the centre of the community

St Peter's Church is a church devoted to developing a holy consciousness. We believe that worship is something that can be expressed in everything we do, whether that be nourishing our bodies with food, chatting with friends, playing music, or enjoying nature. Our philosophy is deeply rooted in the Holy Scriptures and Sacraments; life’s only guidebook. Whatever your age, gender, race or ability, there is a special place for you at our Church. We offer members a chance to become part of something greater, to grow their love for God and for one another in our beautiful community. Get in touch today or swing by for a visit.
