Vision and Values
Welcome to St. Peter’s Church Website
Use the navigation bar at the top to find what you want.
We are a Warwickshire church that include people from many different backgrounds, cultures and experiences. Some are used to church, others have never had any experience, but together we are finding relevant and empowering ways of supporting each other and engaging with our world. We are excited by the things we see God doing and we hope that you find something here that will help you on life’s journey.
What type of churches are we?
Our Church people try to learn to Love God, Serve People and Grow Community. Our Church offers both traditional and contemporary services, appealing to young and old.
What about Children and Young People?
We are a family-friendly church that run lots of activities and events including Messy Church.
At a time when some people have lost faith, we are finding the opposite. We believe that we are all on a faith journey and we encourage you to join
St Peter’s Vision
Being a Christian is about following Jesus; drawing close to him, learning from him and serving like he served, all as part of a Christian community. As we do this together we grow to realise more of our potential, we never arrive, but we can always get closer to who we could be. So, simply stated, the vision of St Peter’s is:
Becoming the people God calls us to be.
And we aim to help one another do that by focussing on the things we see the church doing in the Bible;
Loving God, Serving People and Growing Community
We want to help one another experience the love and power of God, growing in our awareness of His love for us and learning to take time just to be with him.
We also want to help one another learn more about God; the history of his interaction with humanity, the richness of our inheritance in the Bible, the guidance he has given and still gives today and more
We aim to help one another identify and develop our gifts and talents and enable each of us to serve where God is calling us to make a difference. We work together to identify the needs of the people in our village to find ways that we can help.
We work on being a community where relationships are real and supportive, where all are welcomed and can feel at home as part of our church family. We want to grow in our love for one another as a community and we want that love and hospitality to overflow to the wider village community.
Becoming who God calls us to be
We believe if we focus on growing the church in these areas then we’ll provide the right environment for making new disciples, helping every member to grow in faith, in service and in belonging. Together becoming the people that God calls us to be.
Our values are like a ‘highway code’ by which we all journey together and hopefully avoid accidents, or road rage!
We feel that the guidance St Paul gave the church in Colossae outlines a set of values to which we aspire. We do not always get it right, but they are a good target for which to aim:
“… clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
