S. Peter's is the finest church building in Accrington, and sits on a brow above the town on the south side.

The congregation, though modest in size, is faithful, lively and friendly.

This is a traditional Anglo Catholic Church in which worship, prayer and the sacraments are held dear. The Apostolic principle of an exclusively male priesthood is practiced here;Resolutions A & B have been passed.

Why not come and join us? A very warm welcome awaits all those seeking to enjoy the riches of the Catholic faith here.
