Churchyard Map  designed by Sandra and Graham Champken.

Newnham History Group has over the past four years, created a detailed map of the entire churchyard, which will enable visitors with Newnham links to find their ancestors more easily.  The main map is complemented by a number of enlarged sections (which are easier on the eyesight) and a spreadsheet name index (arranged in alphabetical order of surname) which contains the names of more than 2,000 people commemorated on gravestones.  These items will be displayed permanently in the church.

 Monday Club Each week in the school term, children from St. Peter’s School in year 3 and above can attend Monday Club and is run by Joe and volunteers from St. Peter’s Church. They hear a Bible Story, have different activities, have a drink and biscuit (!) etc etc. There are a few spaces at the moment, so do contact Joe if you want to know more on o1594 510165  joeknight@outlook.com

Communion If you, or anyone you know, cannot get to church but would like to receive communion at home, please let one of the churchwardens know.  Church wardens: 516716 or 516476
