Friends of St Peters

Thank you!

A huge thank you to the many generous and talented cake makers of Ropley, who provided five tables’ worth of produce for the Friends cake stall at the Pram Race.  We raised a massive £429 for Raise St Peter’s and also brought a smile to many a hungry face! Thank you.

Friends AGM

This year, the Friends AGM will be held on Wednesday 6th July at 6pm in the Coffee Room.  As many of you will know, we would normally hold a garden party immediately after the AGM, but this year, with the exciting prospect of actually opening the church sometime later this year, we have decided to combine that party with those celebrations.  The meeting will be short, and we will be serving drinks and canapés immediately afterwards.  All members will be warmly welcomed – we encourage you to come along, hear our plans for the months ahead and help us shape the future of the Friends.  Papers will be circulated in early July to all members.
