St Peter's Porch Cleaning
We are looking for someone to take on responsibility for cleaning the porch at St Peter's. In the windy season this may be necessary more than once a week and the windows etc need to be kept cobweb free. If it is something you think you could do, please contact Sylvia.

IOW Street Pastors
Now recruiting for volunteers. To find out more about this important ministry in local schools and towns, please take a look at the website or speak to one of our school/street/prayer pastors. There is a particular need for prayer pastors to support our teams, in schools at lunchtime, once a week, or once a month at the church base from which our teams go out late at night. Great if you are awake in the wee small hours!!!!!!!!!
