St Peter's is a thriving church family, and offer many exciting activities for our young people, run by the Team Ministry and members of the congregation.
We encourage teenagers to begin to ask questions about faith and deepen their understanding of Christianity. As well as group discussions there are day visits, festival weekends away such as Greenbelt, and activity trips like the ski centre in Hemel Hempstead. Church doesn't have to be boring!
Through enjoyable and relaxed activities, teenagers can build lasting friendships, discover more about faith and have fun, all in a safe environmnent with trained leaders.
Fusion is a group for young people, at Upper School (Year 9) and above, that meets a couple of times a term on a Saturday night.
We get together in an informal, relaxed group to share a meal and discussion. New members are always welcome. If you'd like to join in, speak to Rev Penny Nash - she will be glad to answer any questions.
Our main Sunday service is at 9.30am, when all the family can worship together. Our young people are invited to take part in the service by reading the lesson or the Gospel, leading the prayers or serving at the altar. We always welcome involvement from any young person.
The Third Sunday Service, held once a month, is a relaxed and informal service aimed at young families, children and those of any age seeking to grow in faith. It includes praise songs, a bible reading and a short talk, as well as prayers and the Peace.
Lay people in St Peter's congregation are actively involved in the Sunday Eucharist, and we particularly welcome young people to take part in our worship.
Altar servers assist the clergy by helping to prepare the church before the service, joining in the procession and the Gospel reading, and helping with the distribution of the communion bread and wine.
If you think you'd like to take part in this, speak to one of the clergy. They will give you full training and explain everything to you. Other servers will help you during the services so you won't get lost!
We have a very active choir who help to lead the sung worship on Sunday mornings. The choir is a mixture of all ages, so there are lots of young people taking part as well as younger children and adults. We welcome new singers of any age who are keen to develop their music skills, and many of our young choir members work towards RSCM awards.
