ST PETERS PLANT
In recent years, here at St Johns, we have been designated a Resourcing Church. Part of the outworking of this role is to plant or graft churches, whether that is starting something completely from scratch in a new space or partnering with an existing congregation to bring about revitalisation. St Johns is itself the beneficiary of a team from Holy Trinity grafting in with the existing congregation at St Johns a few years back, and so there is a sense in which we are seeking to do for another church what has been done for us.
In March 2019, just before the national lockdown due to Coronavirus, we entered into a partnership agreement with St Peters, Oadby. Similarly, to what happened for St Johns a few years ago, this will entail a small team from St Johns going to St Peters with Jon Tearne, our planting curate, to encourage, strengthen and enliven the mission and ministry of St Peters.
