What sort of church are we?

Welcome to the St Peter's

We are a town-centre Church of England church - which means that we're used to welcoming all sorts of people all the time. We are a worshipping and serving community of about 350 people, including around 75 children and young people.

There are 20 acts of worship each week, including five on Sundays, and it is usually possible to get something to eat or drink before, during or after most of them!

We love to serve our community. One of the ways we do this is through our food ministry, which serves those who are homeless or in poor housing every day.

There are plenty of opportunities to get stuck in as a volunteer - or just to sit quietly and allow the community to carry you, if that's what you need just now.  

If you'd like to receive a personal welcome to St Peter's please fill in one of the Welcome Cards on the ends of the pews in church and hand it to one of the clergy after the service. This will cause us to be in touch to arrange to visit you at home or to meet for a coffee in town.
