Community involvement

As a church we engage with the local community in many ways. The clergy and our lay members maintain strong links with the business community, the local authorities, and the health, education and voluntary sectors. Our aim is to play an active and positive role alongside others to enrich the life of our town, serving those in particular need and building bridges between groups and individuals who might otherwise have little contact with each other.

We want the people of Harrogate to feel that St Peter’s can be their church and that it does not belong only to those who choose to be regular worshippers with us. We are here to support all those who seek to strengthen the life of our community and, in particular, to highlight spiritual principles which bring healing and hope in a world that is so often broken, and where many people are fearful about the future. Our prayer is that God’s kingdom will come in Harrogate “as it is in heaven” and that we may show the love of Christ in the marketplace and the world of work, as well as in the church.

There is a Community Cafe on Mondays from 12.00noon until 1.30pm serving light food and drinks which is run in partnership with Stonham Homestay, a local charity which aims to prevent homelessness.
