St Peter's Church
We traditionally have a 'Gift Service' on the first Sunday in December with all gifts and toys donated going to the Salvation Army for distribution to the most vulnerable families.
This year, due to restrictions caused by COVID-19, the Salvation Army have asked that all donations be brought to them by the end of November. As a result this years Gift Service will take place on Sunday 22nd November at 09.30am ~ if you are unable to attend please leave your donations at the vicarage.
Please note that our service of Remembrance will be on Sunday 8th of November starting at 10.50am
Our bible study will take place every Tuesday at 7.30pm
and is a follow-up session to each Sundays reading and sermon,
to allow us a deeper understanding of the book of Ephesians.
Full details of each week’s topic can be found here

During this trying time St Peter's Church is continuing to support the Salvation Army Food Bank in Preston. If you would like to donate any non-perishable foodstuffs please leave them at the vicarage in Inskip; alternatively contact the vicar on 01772 690157 who will arrange collection.
CARE IN THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
In these unprecedented times we are all asked to make sweeping changes in our lives, for our own good and that of others. In the Church of England, we have suspended church services to help to limit the spread of COVID-19. We won't meet on Sundays and the latest advice from the Church of England is that church buildings should also be shut to the public for private prayer.
In our day-to-day lives can I encourage you to follow the advice given by the Government by: washing hands thoroughly and regularly, by catching anything you sneeze in a tissue and throwing the tissue in the bin, and, for the sake of all in our community, self-isolating if you or someone in your household, have a fever or new persistent cough, or are in a category of more vulnerable people (in particular if your immune system reduced, or you are over 70, or pregnant).
Self-isolating can be hard, but in Inskip we are a caring community and help is at hand. If you would like any help, practical, emotional or spiritual, or if you would just like to chat, please do contact me on:
With our prayers and best wishes,
Rev Paul Hunter and all at St Peter's church
