Coton is a small village of around four hundred households just to the west of Cambridge and St Peter’s church stands at its heart overlooking the Village Green. At St Peter’s we strive to be welcoming to all and to engage fully with the village community. We have good links to the Primary School and try to organize events which involve as many in the village as possible. We hold a variety of services through the month and the church is open every day for private prayer or quiet contemplation.
Coton is part of the Lordsbridge Team Ministry, a group of eleven parishes to the west of Cambridge served by a core team comprising the Team Rector, two Team Vicars and a self supporting Team Vicar. Each parish has one of the core team designated as their lead minister.
Our regular pattern of services is as follows:-
|1st Sunday||8.30 am||A said service of Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer|
|11.00 am||All Age Service|
|2nd Sunday||11.00 am||Morning Worship using a Celtic liturgy|
|3rd Sunday||11.00 am||Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer|
|4th Sunday||11.00 am||Holy Communion (Common Worship)|
When there is a fifth Sunday in the month a joint service is held for all the parishes in the Team, usually in one of the larger parishes.
The parish of Coton: St Peter’s is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Ely’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
