St Peter’s Church launches its Christmas Appeal
In 2019, through collections at Carol Services, St Peters Church in Petersfield raised £4000. This significantly contributed to their ability to run a diverse programme of activities, bring together the community and provide a meeting place for both regular church goers and those who simply need friendship, support and a place to go.
2020 has been challenging for everyone and without help they will be limited in what they can provide in 2021.
The Christmas Appeal aims to raise funds to support the churchx’s community work and the people of Petersfield in 2021.
