A very successful concert was held on 26 March 2011 at Craster Tower, when Miss Claire McKenna, a rising young soprano and a local girl, accompanied by Scott Grey (both of whom provided their services without charge) performed a programme of operatic arias, folk songs and songs from the shows before a capacity audience of 70, drawn largely from the Embleton Benefice. The choice of pieces was admirable, with something for everyone, and gave great pleasure to all those attending, The evening closed with supper and a raffle, with prizes kindly donated by Mrs Dorothy Stephenson, the Robson Fish Shop and Col Craster, and raised £1,068 for St Peter's Church funds. The organisers would like to say a very big thank you to all those who helped, in so many different ways, to make the event such a success.

Saturday 27th August St Peter's Church fete
Patronal Day - June 2010
Over the weekend of 26/27 June 2010 St Peter's Church held a number of events to mark their patronal day, the Feast of St Peter. Principal among them were a very successful Saturday afternoon of flowers and music in the Church and teas in the hall and church garden; and a service on Sunday at which a new altar frontal was consecrated in memory of 2 former members of the congregation. All members of the congregation rallied round to help with the festival, and a remarkable £350 was raised for church funds; pictures of the flowers that so beautified the church can be seen here. Also shown is the new altar frontal, dedicated to the memory of former parishioners Jean Breeze and Mary Craster, who generously bequeathed funds for the use of the church.
