St. Peter's church actively supports our local schools, not only through prayer but also by providing governors and volunteers. Assemblies are taken regularly, and school groups visit St. Peter's to learn about the church or to hold carol services.
The Dunchurch & Thurlaston Educational Foundation
Registered charity number: 528738
The Foundation was set up in 1967. It can make grants for educational or training purposes to young persons who have not attained the age of 25 years and who reside, or whose parents reside, in the parishes of Dunchurch and Thurlaston and who in the opinion of the Governors are in need of financial assistance.
It can also make grants to voluntary organisations which provide educational or certain other benefits for such young persons. In addition the Foundation can help the Dunchurch Infant and Junior Schools with benefits which would not normally be provided by the Local Educational Authority.
The income of the Foundation is fairly modest about £2,500. To be considered for a grant please contact the Clerk to the Governors, Paul Smith at 11 Bilton Lane, Dunchurch, Rugby, CV22 6PY or telephone 01788 810635.
Children and Communion: at St Peter's, the Parish Council has agreed that baptised children may receive communion after due preparation. Rev'd Pat asks that parents who wish their children to be admitted to communion please either phone her on 01788 461 987 or speak to her after Sunday service. Alternatively you can email us.
Get involved: if you would like to find out about volunteering with our activities for children, please get in touch.
