Welcome to March

A gesture against the wild,
The ungovernable sea of grass;
A place to remember love in,
To be lonely for a while.

It is the old kingdom of man,
Answering to their names,
Out of the soil the buds come,
The silent detonations
Of power wielded without sin.
R. S. Thomas

Easter workshop fun

Everyone had a great time at the Annual Easter Workshop held at the Priory Church Hall each year on Easter Saturday.

A group of around 40 children were successfully kept busy making cards, decorating eggs, modelling doves and building beautiful Easter Gardens. Here are some images of the group at work! For further information visit the Junior Church page on the St Peters part of the site.

We look forward to seeing you!
