Holsworthy, St Peter & St Paul

We are an inclusive church and everyone is welcome.
If you live in the parish then this is your church and you are welcome to be part of its life.

The sharing of bread and wine is at the centre of our being church.
Then Jesus took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying,
‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ Luke 22.19

 
We strive to model the life and work of Christ Jesus in church and take that out into our daily lives.
We seek to serve the community we are part of.

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. John 13.34

The church is open everyday.  
Do come in; you may like to reflect in the silence, spend some time in pray or light a candle.  

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
