Contact Rev Jo Richards for special 'life event' services, such as christenings, thanksgivings, weddings and funerals. 


The sacrament of Holy Communion is taken to a number of people living in local, residential homes, as well as a number of housebound people living at home.  A short Holy Communion service is also held at the local Age UK, three times a month.

Pastoral Visiting

We have a strong team of pastoral visitors across the Benefice.  They visit members of the congregation who are either housebound or unwell.



St Dunstan's, St Mildred's and St Peter's parishioners are a prayerful community.  There is Morning Prayer every day.  Personal prayer is encouraged by using the Weekly Bulletin, the Daily Prayer sheet, and the weekly Lectionary.  If you would like to be prayed for, or you have a specific prayer request, contact Rev Jo Richards.

Prayer meeting

Every month a group gathers to pray specifically for members of the congregation who have requested prayer.  There is a prayer board available in St Dunstan’s and St Mildred's Churches for any prayer requests.  The Benefice has close ties with the local Pilgrim’s Hospice and prays for people who have requested prayer there.

Every Monday morning, the Rector walks the streets of the Benefice.  She covers the whole area once a month.  Rev Jo Richards spends time specifically praying for those along each street, asking for God’s blessing upon the community.
