St Peter's Church
St Peter's Church is at the centre of the parish and village of Burnham and is Eucharistically centred in the liberal catholic tradition.
Our church family is an active and visible presence in the heart of the Burnham community, strong on fellowship and celebrating God’s love with those around us. Our services offer a range of worship with music playing a major part. We are blessed with a talented organist, strong well-led choir, Keynotes music group, tower and hand bell groups.
We believe that our church family is welcoming and inviting, and we reflect this through social and fellowship events which take place throughout the year, many of which raise funds to support St Peter’s.
While our church is a busy place, we have a compassionate and caring ethos which is supported by a wide variety of groups and activities. Although we view ourselves as warm and friendly, we recognise that those new to faith or our church can sometimes be a little overwhelmed by the busyness of it all.
We try very hard to be welcoming both at our services and on a day to day basis but if it all seems a bit much, please join us for a cup of tea or coffee and hopefully we will get our act together.
THE CHURCH AND OFFICE ARE NOW CLOSED

Jesus Christ, you travelled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love. Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care. Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbours from helping one another. Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no borders. Amen
God, You are my refuge. I run to You. You are my Lord. There is no other. Preserve and strengthen me as I face this. You are my portion and my cup. In You, I have a beautiful inheritance, this I will remember. Because of You, I will not be shaken. I feel certain. Heal and strengthen me now, good Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.’
Prayers will be said in St Peter’s Church. If you are at home and hear the bell you know that we will be praying. If you would like your name added to the prayer list please contact Pam in the Parish Office on 01628 664338 firstname.lastname@example.org or the Revd Janet Minkkinen on 07856047960
Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. O' Holy One I come before you today in need of your healing hand. In you all things are possible. Hold my heart within yours, and renew my mind, body, and soul.
I am lost, but I come to you with grace.
You gave us life, and you also give us the gift of infinite joy. Give me the strength to move forward on the path you've laid out for me. Guide me towards better health, and give me the wisdom to identify those you've placed around me to help me get better. Amen
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, just as it is well with your soul.
Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness.
Lord, You walked on the earth, understood the broken world, yet also rose from death into resurrected life.
I pray for my loved one that they would be held at this time in your loving arms. Bless the work of the doctors, surgeons and hospital staff, and bring the power of your resurrection life into their body.
Come fill my loved one from top to toe with your restorative Spirit. May your resurrection life bring healing and wellness into their being.
May your grace carry them through this hard time into a new season filled with hope and joy. Amen
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.’
