St Peter’s Heating
For the first time since Sunday 22 March – the day before Lockdown – we have a working heating
system in St Peter’s! The system will now be fine-tuned to achieve the optimum heating outputs
to meet our twin objectives: to keep parishioners warm and to preserve the fabric of the church
Parishioners are reminded that under current restrictions, there is no access to the parish room,
the toilets and the sacristy.
