FaceBook

Many of our services are broadcast on FaceBook, which you can join for free. Although you can view these without joining, it is much easier if you have joined. If you have a FaceBook account you can be informed when services are due to start, and be sent notifications of other news from the Churches as it is posted.

This guide will teach you how to sign up to Facebook. By the end of the the guide you will know how to join Facebook, add friends or ‘people you may know’ and also how to add a cover photo or profile picture to your account..

If you have a smartphone, WhatsApp is a greast way to connect with other Church members and family contacts.

St Peter’s Church has a couple of WhatsApp groups – “Chat & Prayer”, and “Things we like”. If you would like to join one or both of these groups, please contact us.
