Welcome to St Peter’s Church in the heart of Harrogate.

Our doors are open from 8.00am till 5.15pm, Monday to Saturday, and until immediately after the 6.30pm service on Sunday.  St Mary’s chapel is almost always available for quiet prayer and as a place of peace in the centre of our busy town.

Life at St Peter’s is lively and varied and there is something for all ages. We offer new ways to worship God alongside our traditional services – from cafe to cathedral style.  Our strong musical tradition includes an excellent robed choir and a flourishing music group.

Six days a week we provide a daily hot breakfast for the homeless and every evening we give away food parcels to the hungry. St Peter’s is also a centre for community activities, concerts, exhibitions and civic events. We try to build strong links with local businesses, the voluntary sector and public services, whilst providing a welcome to visitors from throughout the UK and further afield.

Why not come along and see for yourself?
