Positive reward based training is used throughout the course to make this an enjoyable experience. We also prepare you to be able to understand your dog’s behaviour, to give them choice and work at their pace and how to deal with things when they don’t go according to plan.

“There will be a maximum of 6 dogs per class with two trainers to ensure you get individual support. Classes are offered for puppies up to 18-20 weeks of age. Your puppy needs to be fully vaccinated before coming to puppy class. The class aims to cover teaching your dog to settle and, basic commands, interaction with other puppies, being handled/groomed, lead walking, self-control, recall and confidence building.”

This course will start on 21st March 2019 from 6.00pm to 7.00pm – running every Thursday for six weeks at St Peter’s Rooms. It costs £80.

The Friends’ Cafe

 

New Style Café Church @ St Peter's Church
Apr 7 @ 9:30 am – 10:50 am

On the first Sunday of every month a New Style Café Church takes place at St Peter’s Church from 9.30am until 10.50am. For those wishing to stay longer, this is followed by Holy Communion.

Organiser Debbie King told us: “We aim to provide something for everyone, from pre-school, through schools, teens, students, families, parents, grandparents, all ages and backgrounds! For those wanting activity on a Sunday morning, there is drama, music, art, crafts, and discussion groups. Also, a quieter area for reflection, space to think, pray, even prayed for.”

If you’re alone, lonely, or at a loose end on a Sunday morning, you’re encouraged to go along and join in – and so perhaps discover others in a similar position. “If new to the village – come to meet people from the local community, find out about our church community in the village and the things we do. If a busy professional or someone curious with questions – check us out, join a discussion!”

Central to the Café Church idea is a short talk on a Bible related topic incorporating film clips or sketches, a time of discussion and questions. “Find out how God and the Bible can help us in our everyday life – not just a topic that’s far out there, not relevant to us – discover that God is someone whom we can meet, and the Bible, a book we can learn from, even integrate into our lives” says Debbie.

All this, alongside coffee, Danish pastries and some good company will hopefully tempt you along to the informal atmosphere of this monthly Café Church at St Peter’s.
