St. Peter’s Church in the Great Valley is a place to gather in community for fun, socializing and in ways to serve. During the pandemic, some but not all in-person events have been curtailed.

We welcome visitors to all of the events listed below.

Trunk or Treat and family movie night, October 24 at 5:00 p.m.

St. Peter’s is hosting “Trunk or Treat,” a version of trick-or-treating in which children move safely from car trunk to car trunk to collect their treats. It is a great way to bring our community together for some fun and treats. Plan to decorate the trunk of your car and put on your best Halloween costume! After the candy has been collected, please consider staying for family movie night on the Rector’s Grove. Bring a picnic dinner, movie snacks, drinks, chairs, blankets, etc. We are planning to show the Disney movie Luca when the sun goes down, about 6:15 p.m.

Evensong, November 6  at 4:oo p.m.

Join us for All Saints’ choral evensong in the Bank Barn. Guest organist John Walthausen will play and organist/choirmaster Dr. Bruce Glenny will direct the service. The music will include works by three British composers: the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by Thomas Tertius Noble (1867-1953), the Preces and Responses by Philip Radcliffe (1905-1986), and the anthem The Souls of the Righteous by Geraint Lewis (1958 – ).
