Sermon Series – The Psalms
This term, across all our service we are focusing our preaching and worship on the Psalms as a way of helping us go DEEPER with God in personal faith and daily living. We’re using a range of Psalms that connect
with highs, lows, joys and challenges of life seeking to worship the Lord, see him, trust him and serve him whatever we may be facing.
On Sunday, 29 September, we celebrate Harvest at all our services including the Church of the Good Shepherd at 10.30 am and the All-Age Celebration at St. Peter’s 11.00 am Parade Service.
Our cash collections and gifts of nonperishable food will be given to the Wirral Ark and Charles Thompson Mission , who both support local
St. Peter’s Evensong will be a Choral Service.
It was announced this week that Lyn Weston will be leaving the Chester Diocesan staff in September to take up a national position with the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity (LICC) as Director of Church of England Relations.
Please pray for Lyn as she joins LICC working with Dioceses across the country on whole life discipleship. She will work from her home base in Heswall, so she will also be able to continue her ministry in the Parish.
The Parish Weekend is an excellent opportunity to get to know others better and to invest in your relationship with God and prayer life.
We will be welcoming our guest speaker Revd. Cris Rogers, Vicar of All Hallows, Bow, author of the prayer resource material for Spring Harvest
and an avid Star Wars fan.

Whatever else you’re planning to read this summer, can we encourage you to get hold of a copy of Pete Grieg’s “How to Pray”; read it in the garden, by the pool… wherever. Holidays are traditionally holydays; invest in your spiritual life with this great read!

We believe in the power of prayer and thanksgiving. In St Peter’s
Centre and the Church of the Good Shepherd Church, we have placed
prayer boxes and prayer/praise cards. Prayer request cards allow you
to fill out your requests anonymously or share with others to pray together. Praise report cards allows you an opportunity to thank God for answered prayers, His provision, His faithfulness or share a testimony
of His unfailing love.
