Welcome to St Peter’s Church!

We are a community of Christians seeking to serve and love those around us. Our building is at the top of North Hill (where it meets the High Street). Our congregation is made up of people of various ages and stages, some of whom live in the parish and many of whom come from further afield. Other than that, of course, things continue to be a bit unusual at the moment.


We are hiring! We are looking to appoint a Pastoral Co-ordinator, part-time (6-10 hours/week) and fixed-term (till 31st August 2022). Click for the Job Description and the Application Form. Enquiries to Mrs Bernice Watts (via [email protected]). Closing date: 9am on Wednesday 8th September. Interviews by arrangement.
