Welcome to St Peter’s Church!

We are a community of Christians seeking to serve and love those around us. We are part of the Colchester Town Centre Parish, and 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.

Weekly Updates. Please click here for the most recent Update (23rd January).

Sunday ‘on-line’ Services. These pre-recorded services are online at 10:00am on Sundays (or any time afterwards), and can be viewed on Facebook or on YouTube. For the relevant service-sheet, click here.

Sunday ‘in-church’ Services. In light of the recent government policy and the advice received from the Diocese, we will sadly be closing St Peter’s for public worship for the time being. We will keep the matter under ongoing review and will continue to make Church Family Worship Online available each Sunday morning.

  • Mark writes: In light of the recent government policy and the advice received from the Diocese, we remain closed for public worship once again. We will continue to make Church Family Worship Online available each Sunday morning, and will endeavour to help those unable to access this in other ways. The Churchwardens and I will keep the matter under ongoing review and will keep people informed as much as possible.
