Looking Outwards

St. Peter’s is a church which looks outwards and links with a number of organisations both locally and internationally.

Each month we learn about and pray for one of a number of international mission agencies. During November, “Let us praise God for the great and glorious victory which he has been pleased to grant to us and to our Allies, and for the good hope of peace now shining through the clouds of war. Let us praise him for the faithfulness, bravery, and self-sacrifice of all who have fought and laboured for our deliverance, and, above all, for the memory and high example of the men who have died that we may live.
Let us remember before God the solemn responsibility now resting upon the statesmen of the world, and pray that he may guide them by his spirit of counsel and of strength, and that by their endeavours peace and justice, freedom and order, may be established among all nations.” – a Thanksgiving to Almighty God, Sunday the 17th of November 1918, issued under the Authority of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

Today, Islamists are the greatest force for evil in the world and Christianity is the most persecuted religion on earth. Let us stand in solidarity with Christians around the world who are being persecuted because of their faith.

Locally our mission as the Church of Christ leads us to get involved with schools, care homes and social care agencies. We regularly visit Nursing and care homes; we support work at Poole Refuge and Robert Gabriel House which cares for young people; we have a Church Junior school and we regularly work with the other schools in the Parish too; we support work with homeless people in Poole and Refugees from Syria, and we are part of the work of the Poole Passion.
