St. Peter's Church at the heart of Drayton Bassett is built of local sandstone in Gothic style with nave, chancel and 15th century tower.  The Church is one of the Peel Group of Parishes, including Churches at Fazeley and Canwell.
St Peter’s Church provided ‘messy Easter‘, at The Manor School a few days before Holy Week.  It was instigated by Rev. Jonathan Iddon who was helped by of some of the Ministry Team and people from St Paul’s Church and St Peter’s Church.  Jonathan read an Easter story from ‘Open the Book’ and then children took part in six different crafts.
Messy Easter Event for Owls
At the end of the sessions, the children had made Easter cards, soap, a cross shape mosaic coaster, decorated shortbread crosses, and paper palms.

They listened to part of the Easter story, acting out the waving of the palms when Jesus was on a donkey coming into Jerusalem.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and the children went home with many Easter gifts.

Plant Sale and Coffee Morning

True to form, the heavens opened just as we started selling flowers, but despite the rain we had a steady flow of visitors.  With tea, coffee and cake on offer, many moved into the church to shelter and share memorable moments with other visitors and friends.  By the time we closed at 12.30pm, all plants were sold and much needed funds raised.  Thanks to everyone who helped with the stalls and refreshments and importantly to those coming along to support.
