We are moving into October and in theory the colder months of the year in this country. In August this year we seemed to be in Autumn already and I was getting very close to putting my heating on and then September arrives, and we have a few tropical days! Things seem very strange in so many different ways. In September we have held a service for creation Sunday – thinking about the world which God created and how we can play our part in caring for the world at this time. Later this year, there are big conversations coming up about climate change and what we can do to reverse the damage already done. We are praying as we move towards COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference, that we will be able to take steps to heal the planet which is suffering in so many different ways.
As we move into a new season and see changes around us in the weather, temperature and in nature, and as the clocks change at the end of the month, we are expecting some changes too at St. Peter’s and are looking forward to what lies ahead for us. Many of you may know that we have been having some building work done since just after Easter of this year. Our new facilities which include a new room upstairs, new toilets and a new kitchen area should be completed this month and The Bishop of Ely is coming to dedicate our new facilities and we will have a Confirmation Service for those who want to make their own declaration of faith.
Please do come and join us for this service with Bishop Stephen on Sunday 24th October at 10.30am. You are very welcome to join us on this Sunday or any Sunday. We would love to see you. We hope that from November we will be able to welcome back other groups and our children and youth ministry groups as well. We have missed you.
I love the autumn as the leaves change colour and fall, I hope that you are able to get out and about and see the beauty of the world around us.
With every blessing for this season.
