Parish Giving Scheme

30 December 2018

Unknown26Both The Holy Innocents' Church Gt Barton and St Peter's Church Thurston have joined The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). Each year it costs more to ensure that our Churches can remain open to everyone, when needed. In order to do this with declining congregations, we hope you will consider joining the PGS and give a regular amount to support your Church. If you would like more information on how you can join this scheme please contact our Parish Giving Scheme co-ordinator at: or the PGS website: Parish Giving Scheme

St Peter's Church Draw Club

18 November 2018

fullsizeoutput 29c10ST. PETER’S CHURCH DRAW CLUB

The Draw Club helps to raise money for the church. Members pay £15 per year for a Draw Club number (more than one can be purchased by any member) which is entered into a monthly draw for a small prize (currently £10). The Draw is done in The Rock during coffee after one of the Sunday services.

In June or July we hold a strawberries and cream afternoon and in December we hold a coffee and mince pie morning at which the grand summer and winter draws are done. There is usually a raffle and a quiz too. Currently there are 76 members and the prizes are £90, £45 and £22.50 but the more members the larger the prizes. If we can double the membership it will double the prize amounts.

Anyone over the age of 16 can become a member and it is an easy way to support your parish church, you may even win! Please think about joining for 2019 or even buying someone a year’s membership as a Christmas present.
