St Peter and St Paul’s Church News

Services held regularly in your church are a Communion Service on Wednesday morning at 9.30am and 10am on Sunday morning with refreshments afterwards.

Jubilee Celebrations
It was wonderful and a privilege to host an exhibition of the last 70 years of the Queen’s reign in the church as reported elsewhere in this paper.
The special service on Sunday morning 5th June was uplifting. The service included a number of musical items used in the 1953 Coronation Service, including ‘I was Glad’, the trumpet fanfares preceding the singing of the National Anthem and the Coronation March, ‘Orb and Sceptre’ at the end. A special thank you to our talented organist Matthew Jones.
After the service all eight bells rang out thanks to the help of ringers from Thurmaston, Queniborough and Birstall.

Special event in Barkby
Barkby church hosted a fund-raising event with ‘Auctioneer and TV Personality’ Charles Hanson on 9th June in Barkby Church in aid of the charity L.S.P.I. (Life Skills Project International). A charity supporting children and young people, particularly girls, to gain skills to improve their lives in Pakistan. It was a highly entertaining talk by a talented auctioneer with many a good story to tell! It was organised by Sheila Langley.
The event raised an amazing £800.
