St Peter & St Paul, Ermington

 

 

Here at Ermington we are thrilled you’ve found us, and welcome you to our corner of the mission community. We are a church with a big heart, and invite you to come and see us.

There are lots of events to come and be part of. We have a choir who sing a mix of modern and traditional church hymns accompanied by our church organist. They meet on a Friday in the church from 7.00-8.00pm, everyone is invited regardless of your singing ability or age, if you’d like to try something new you are most welcome.

A team of Bell ringers, ring before our services on Sunday mornings, their Captain John Irish welcomes new members, experienced or novices and will carefully nurture new talent.

Throughout the year we take part in many fundraising activities, these include Summer and Christmas fayre’s, cake sales, cream teas and pasty lunches, to name but a few and we are always looking for new ideas!

There is also a very popular lunch club which meets every month at the Crooked Spire in Ermington. Visitors are always welcome to attend, please book in advance.

All Sunday services are at 11.00am, there are two Eucharistic services a month (First & Third), Matins (Second Sunday) and an All Age Worship service (Fourth Sunday), which is being run by three younger members of our church community.

The All Age Worship service; is a good way to find out a little bit more about us, it’s a relaxed affair often with tea and cake, before and after the service. There is no communion, and the service caters for children and adults of all ages, there is something for everyone. The service is more informal and questions are encouraged, even though we may have to get back to you on the answers!! The service follows the bible readings of the Sunday, the music will be hymns you’ll recognise, and the children take part in the activities as much as possible.

If you’re not sure and intrigued about church, this is the service we encourage you to attend, although you are welcome to attend any!
