Dear People of Dalwood

As we are in a Vacancy at present, with no Vicar, the PCC would like to tell you about our plans for St Peter's Church in the coming months. In these unprecedented times we have been unable to hold regular services for several months, with the exception of the Mission Community Harvest Festival. 

We have now been able to plan some more services, although these are restricted during the latest "lockdown". There will be a mid-week morning Holy Communion in St. Peter's Church at 9.30 am on 16th December and, on Sunday 20th. at 3pm, Archdeacon Andrew Beane will lead Holy Communion and Carols. 

On the 24th December- Christmas Eve - the church will be open from 2-4pm to receive Posada Sheep and to give out Christingles and this will be followed by a Christmas Eve Midnight Mass (24th December) at 11.30 p.m. led by Nigel Freathy.

Once the present lockdown is over St. Peter's will be open on a couple of days a week (currently Wednesdays and Saturdays - see guidelines below for more details) for private prayer or just somewhere quiet and peaceful to sit and reflect.

In January 2021 there will be a "Zoom" Five Alive Service at 11.00am. and, on Sunday 24th January we are planning to hold an 11.00 am. Mission Community Holy Communion, led by Nigel Freathy.

Thank you and best wishes

Dalwood St Peter's PCC
