The Feast Day of our Patronal Saint is on Saturday 29th June, and we invite you to come and celebrate with us at St Peter’s Field Broughton. There will be organ music – broadcast via speakers so those enjoying the sun outside church can hear it. There will be trips up the tower to take in the spectacular views. Locally brewed cider will be available; and a lavish tea will be provided. So why not come along from 2.00pm onwards and join in the fun!
St Peter's welcomed over 50 worshippers to the Easter Day service on 21st April 2019. This year there were enough youngsters in the congregation to offer still competition for the adults who joined in the traditional Easter egg hunt. It must be admitted that the egg in the photo was not 'hidden' very effectively. Could the whole scene have been a set-up for a good photo opportunity? Perish the thought...
What a beautiful sunny morning it was. The good weather really lifted our spirits, and put us in the mood to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. All this sunshine... Can't possibly be a Bank Holiday??
April 21st is Easter Sunday. At St Peter's we will celebrate this most important day in the Church's calendar at our usual Sunday Service time at 9.30 am.
After the service there will be coffee / tea and biscuits for the adults, and an Easter egg hunt for the youngsters. With the self-imposed Lenten ban on chocolate, it is a fairly safe bet that there will be plenty of adults ready to lend a hand in the hunt!
The Easter Vigil and first Eucharist of Easter will be held at St Mary’s Staveley-in-Cartmel beginning at 8.30pm
On Holy Saturday (Easter Eve), as has been the tradition within the Cartmel Peninsula, we will be hosting the Easter Vigil and first Eucharist of Easter for the Team. This year it will be at St Mary’s Staveley-in-Cartmel beginning at 8.30pm, just after sunset.
The Easter Liturgy is a moving and important act of worship and begins our celebrations of the Lord’s Resurrection as we proclaim, with the church throughout the world, the good news of Christ risen.
The Liturgy includes the lighting of the Easter fire, the Vigil itself, the Easter proclamation, the renewal of baptismal vows, culminating in our celebration of the first Eucharist of Easter.
It has been usual at the end of the Liturgy for each of the Paschal Candles of the Team’s churches to be lit before the Dismissal and then carried out into the darkness as symbolism of our unity in Christ as witnesses to his Resurrection.
For the cost of ‘a pie and a pint’ each week you could really help your parish church. (Admittedly that’s a cheap pie!) We are hoping that the equivalent of 25 people will gift £20 per month, or 100 could give £5 per month. This regular extra income will mean we can serve our community long into the future. St Peter’s is for YOU.
In the weeks before Easter we are running our ‘stewardship appeal’. We are asking all of our supporters in the parish to join in helping ensure the financial viability of St Peter’s for many more years to come. At the moment about 25 regular givers bear the burden. We invite all those who value their parish church to contribute towards its upkeep.
As we launch our 'pie and a pint for St Peter' stewardship appeal,
it is interesting to read here about the concerted effort to share out
the burden of responsibility throughout the parish.

On 17th February we held our special Valentine's Sunday service to celebrate God's Love in the world. The service is a slightly shortened version of Holy Communion with appropriately themed readings. Last Sunday we were delighted to welcome two couples who were married at St Peter's in 2018. It was so encouraging that these couples felt that they wanted to return to St Peter's to share in our celebrations. Thank you so much! We encourage the whole community to come and join in our Valentine's celebrations next year!
