Making St Peter's an eco church
We are delighted to announce that the diocese is now a Bronze Eco Diocese. Bishop Christopher announced that the diocese of Coventry has been awarded the Bronze Eco Diocese Award by A Roche UK. Coventry is only the 6th diocese in England and Wales to receive this award. Well done!
St Peter's Church is on its way to becoming a more eco-friendly church and we're working towards our eco church bronze award through UK A Rocha, a Christian charity ‘caring for God’s earth’. For more information, please have a word with Chris Sarson or Jackie Hesketh.
Saturday gardening finishes in early November and then will start again in late February/early March, so there's still time to join us. Anyone willing to help with the weeding, trimming, strimming, mowing etc., is very welcome. Coffee and doughnuts mid-morning. Come and join us!
Promoting a Safer Church
Please note that this policy: 'Promoting a Safer Church' is displayed on the church noticeboard.
Rugby Foodbank urgently needs tinned carrots, meat (pies, ham, etc.), dried milk, but all contributions greatly received (there is a crate at the back of church).
Junior church - if you would like to join the Junior church team (volunteers don't need to lead the children's sessions but can simply support our leaders, if they wish) do get in touch with the children's team.
Bell ringers - our bell ringers ring for Sunday services and practice on a Wednesday evening. If you are interested in having a go, please contact Mike Bennett, the Tower Captain on: 01788 814304.
Church rotas - we really need help with new faces to go on the rotas for coffee, sides-persons and cleaning. The more people we have, the less often it comes your turn! If you would be willing to help and allow us to continue these important services at St Peter's, please contact Lucy Shaw at L_cleaver@sky.com
The Dunchurch and Thurlaston Educational Foundation
Registered Charity number 528738
The Foundation was set up in 1967. It can make grants for educational or training purposes to young persons who have not attained the age of 25 years and who reside, or whose parents reside, in the parishes of Dunchurch and Thurlaston and who in the opinion of the Governors are in need of financial assistance. It can also make grants to voluntary organisations which provide educational or certain other benefits for such young persons. In addition the Foundation can help the Dunchurch Infant and Junior Schools with benefits which would not normally be provided by the Local Educational Authority.
The income of the Foundation is fairly modest about £2,500 last year, but if anyone wants to be considered for a grant please contact the Clerk to the Governors, Paul Smith at 11 Bilton Lane Dunchurch Rugby CV22 6PY or telephone 01788 810635 or email email@example.com.
