What sort of church are we?

We are a welcoming and eclectic church, drawing from the best of all Christian traditions and seeking to build good relationships and strengthen family and community life. We try to help each person discern his or her individual calling and so express God’s love through the spiritual and practical gifts He has given them.

St Peter's interior during a serviceSt Peter’s church works hard and prayerfully at being a loving community. Everyone is valued and, wherever possible, we are here to help. We recognise that it is often in our weakness that God is able to transform our lives and use us most powerfully.  We strive to be as eco-friendly as possible and have an active Eco Group with a challenging agenda.

More recently through our Animal Welfare group, we are now members of the Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals and are recognised by them as an Animal Friendly Church.

We are a very diverse bunch of people from a range of different backgrounds who worship in contrasting ways and for whom St Peter’s provides a spiritual home.  All of us are welcomed here despite coming from differing Christian traditions or indeed from no faith at all. It is this variety which makes our life together both exciting and challenging, but which also makes us continually aware of our dependence on God. There is a place for you!
