We celebrate World Aids day on the 1st of December each year, and this year, we had a programme and talk prepared by Kene Esom, a Human Rights Lawyer and parishioner. The talk and discussion was to educate and cultivate an understanding as well as to lead into a time of discussion, understanding and insight.
The talk brought up many questions in St. Peter's hall after the service on the 30th of November. The destigmatization of HIV/Aids was on the forefront and everyone, young and old walked away having learnt a lot. We should stand together as an enlightened, spiritual and non-judgmental community to prayer for those who are affected and infected with HIV/Aids throughout the month and the year ahead.

The Sunday School team has had their annual Sleep Over on Saturday afternoon, the 1st into Sunday morning the 2nd of November. The event was pen to all St Peters Children from the age of 6 years old and up.
The adults who felt young at heart joined in on all the fun. Parents were invited and joined the sleepover to help the team with the programme and to ensure there is enough adult supervision.
The programme consisted of a range of activities, making their own pizzas, bio-dancing, having a camp fire and making smores, telling storries and a talent show where modeling, singing and dancing was on the table. In short we all had a very busy and fun evening.
we look forward to hosting everyone with the next sleep over. Thought there were only 15 kids who attended, the others were very sad that they couldn't make it and are very excited about the next one.
In the spirit of fun a lot of songs were sung and everyone came together in the spirit of the song:
“The more we come together, the happier we’ll be”
