Town centre role

sp_156St Peter’s plays an important civic role in the centre of Harrogate has many links with the business, commercial and political life of the town. As well as offering St Peter’s as an imaginative venue for worship and as an exhibition centre, we are pleased to lay on events such as photographic and art exhibitions to draw in visitors and tourists. On the second Thursday of each month between 12 noon and 2pm Amnesty International makes use of the central venue to encourage passers-by to sign letters and postcards to governments around the world. Occasionally we hold services specifically for those attending conferences in the town.

sp_087Part of our town centre work is to help the homeless and marginalised; each morning we offer breakfast and every evening we give away food parcels to all who come for them. In addition, St Peter’s is used by many charities in the town to provide refreshments on Saturdays, thereby raising much-needed funds to support their work.

We keep the doors open every day and encourage everyone to feel at home in the building so that it really can be a church for all.
