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 (17th October).

Sunday ‘in-church’ Services. We now have two Morning Services on Sunday, one at 9:30am and the other at 11:15am. Please help us by booking in advance (you can book online by clicking here).

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.
