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 (20th February).
Sunday ‘on-line’ Services. Sundays until 21st March will be on Zoom, and not on Facebook Live. Do join us at 10:00am if you can – you would be most welcome. Zoom login details for “Lent Online” on Sundays are available on request.
There will also be a short service of Morning Prayer each Sunday on the Vicar’s YouTube channel for those unable to access Zoom. These pre-recorded services can be accessed any time after 8:00am on Sundays, and can be viewed on YouTube. For the relevant service-sheet, click here.
Sunday ‘in-church’ Services. In light of the government policy and the advice received from the Diocese, we are sadly still closed for public worship for the time being. We will keep the matter under ongoing review and will continue to make services online available each Sunday morning.
