There But Not There

St. Peter’s is part of a Nationwide Art Installation for the Fallen

There But Not There

In association with ‘Remembered ‘
The church will be open from 9am – 3pm every day during November.

‘Remembered’ has three simple but significant aims:

¨ To Commemorate the Fallen through highlighting the sacrifices made. The 2018 Armistice Project, There But Not There,  will be the Centenary Commemoration for the end of the First World War.

 

 

¨ To Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1, to understand what led to the slaughter of 888,246 British and Commonwealth men.

 

¨ To help Heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder and other lasting legacies of combat, by raising funds for our beneficiary charities. Today, the mental health taboo of Post Traumatic Stress, or ‘shell shock’ as it was known in the Great War, is being broken and Remembered aims to play a significant role in helping build better futures for veterans and those suffering from mental illness.

 

 

 

 

Remembered is a Registered Charity and a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

 

Peace in Our Time Concert – 13th October 2018

On a seasonably warm Saturday afternoon we settled in to enjoy a lovely range of music performed by Jane Field, Elaine Fleming and Philip Holland. One of the There But Not There figures was in place at the east end of the church.

This was followed by sharing a traditional afternoon tea.

One person sent an email saying the following: “Thank you for this afternoon we all enjoyed ourselves so much. Your team worked hard on the afternoon tea which was lovely.Here’s to the next St Peter’s Concert!”

This was all in aid of the East Window Appeal and raised a total of £422 pounds.

Harvest

This year’s Harvest celebrations involved: more than 800 children; 65 bags of goods, fresh and tinned; 3 school services; beautiful flower arrangements; Harvest Lunch and the sale of produce; a large number of people helping to sort and deliver food to Caring Hands and a morning service full of thanks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had twice the amount of donations shown in the photograph on the left.

We also raised £252 towards the East Window Appeal.

 

 

Fundraising for the East Window Appeal

EODs held their ‘More than Words’ concert on July 30th, as part of the Evesham Festival of Words. The church was lit with glorious colour and ringing with wonderful music. The clever technicians also backlit the east window from the church garden, showing all of its glorious colours.

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday 1st of July, we were open for the Port Street Fayre. Visitors included Mr Asparagus, the local police needing a drink, people taking refreshments in the shade in the garden and children who completed a treasure hunt while their parents sat in the cool.
