    ST. PEGA’S CAFE BRUNCH

    An excellent breakfast was enjoyed at Peakirk's famous brunch on Sunday 5th Feb by early and late comers alike. Our twice-yearly brunch is a great family occasion; a chance to relax over a leisurely full English or continental breakfast, to see old friends and acquaintances, and to meet new ones.

    We look forward to seeing you at the next one later this year - so look out for the date in the Tribune.

  • WHAT IS THE POINT OF OUR VILLAGE CHURCH?

    Here are some thoughts; you may have others too.

    • It is a gathering place for Christian worship. Our faith is not exclusive; we know that we are on a journey of discovery about God and God’s call upon our lives. Some may be less sure – but all are welcome to join in at one of the services or privately when the church is open. The prayer board is there for your requests.

    • It provides the focal point for human celebrations; for welcomes and farewells. As the parish church anyone in the parish can ask for its help and make use of its facilities.

    • It serves the community at special times, like Remembrance Sunday and Harvest, as well as the Church’s yearly celebrations. Through its members the church reaches out to the village with community events such as the Brunch in our Village Hall.

    • As a building of antiquity with important wall paintings the church witnesses to the history of this place.

    It is not professionally run but cared for by volunteers, though the church leaders are trained.

    It is not financed by ‘them’ or by London property rents, or any other funding stream. All our finances are locally-sourced!
    It is our church; yes it really is yours and mine. It can only be so if we play our part in using it, maintaining it, and keeping it open.

    After reading this, please think about how you can help the church to go on being an important part of the village for future generations.

    And if there is any way the church can help you, please ask the parish priest or churchwardens whose contact details are given below.

    We’ll do our very best for you, for Jesus‘ sake.

  • PRAYER IN THE STYLE CELTIC CHRISTIANITY FAMILIAR TO PEGA

    A prayer in the style Celtic Christianity familiar to Pega

    You are the peace of all things calm
    You are the place to hide from harm
    You are the light that shines in the dark
    You are the heart’s eternal spark
    You are the door that’s open wide
    You are the guest that waits inside
    You are the stranger at the door
    You are the calling of the poor
    You are my Lord and with me still
    You are my love; keep me from ill
    You are the light, the truth, the way
    You are my Saviour this very day

    Amen
