Welcome and sharing good news

We would love to welcome you to any of our services or activities and to get to know you a bit better. This is part of our celebrating and sharing with you!

If you visit church then please complete a “Welcome Card” and we will contact you.

We also run a number of activities to which you are very welcome to join:

Parent and toddler group

Hopscotch@St Peters meets in the church hall on Wednesday mornings 9.45-11.45 (term time only). There are fun things to entertain the youngsters and refreshments and friendly chat for the grown ups. All welcome. There is a small charge for this group.

Baptisms

As a parish church you have a right to have your child baptised at St Peter’s if you live in the parish. It is also possible to come to us for baptism even if you live outside of the parish. This is a great time of welcome into the church for both your child and your family and friends who attend. You will have a short time of preparation for the service when we will visit you at home. We would also love to keep in touch with you and involve you in the life of the church. If you would like to be baptised as an adult we would also love to welcome you after a short period of preparation.

Monthly Lunch

This takes place on the last Thursday of the month at 12:00 at the Woolpack in Banstead, It is a chance to enjoy a relaxing meal and friendly chat. No need to book, just turn up and ask for the St Peter's Church table or contact either Pat Jones or Gillian Carter.
