Following the death of HRH Prince Philip, St Peter’s is open between 12noon and 2pm for private payer, reflection and thanksgiving from Monday 12th April to Friday 16th April. We are also offering a short service at 12:30pm and 1:30pm, daily. You are welcome to come in and take a seat in a pew for private prayer during this time. Spaces for the services are limited, however, so we ask you please to book via Service Booking on our homepage.

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.

A Short Service of Reflection and Thanksgiving after the death of HRH Prince Philip. There is a short service available to view or share on YouTube and FaceBook. For the relevant service-sheet, click here.
