Correction: Last week's entry under St Peter's Church referred to St Peter's Church in Wilburton and not to St Peter's, Broad Street Ely.
At St Peter's, Ely, the Eucharist is celebrated weekly at 9.15 am. Currently, the regular celebrants are the Rev Alan Partridge (team vicar at St Mary's group of parishes) Canon Chris Barber, the Rev Reg Macklin and the Rev Chris Twycroft (retired priests). They are assisted by three regular servers: John Harnwell, Glyn Taylor and Neville Rolfe, and by Frank Noble and others as epistle-readers. John Yates is chapel warden. Ken Jefferson is sidesman. Janet Fairweather is organist. Helen Yates organises the flower rota and Anne Dewar-Watson takes care of St Peter's House, next door to the church. Tea and coffee are served there after all our services. Plans are afoot to improve the facilities of St Peter's House, particularly so that it may provide a larger meeting-room. Last Friday, the house was the venue for a summer salad supper for members of the congregation and Neville Rolfe showed a video-recording of his recent travels in South India.
Sunday worship at St Peter's Church is in the High Anglican tradition. The regular Eucharist is sung by the congregation using the Elizabethan setting by John Merbecke of words from the Book of Common Prayer. On the fourth Sunday of each month, including this coming Sunday, July 23, canon Barber is celebrant and also conductor of a choir, St Peter Singers which regularly contributes an anthem. Every Wednesday there is a simple lunch-time service at 1pm, and usually a meeting for Bible Study at 7.30pm at St Peter's House.
