St Peter's has always been in the catholic tradition, and the PCC have recently requested that alternative episcopal oversight be granted by The Bishop of Derby, and the ethos is best described as Anglo Catholic. Vestments, incense and bells are used at the 9.45am Sung Eucharist and the blessed sacrament is perpetually reserved, Common Worship Order 1 usually is used, traditional hymns predominate .
Between a quarter and a third of the regular congregation live outside the parish, but the majority of those are former residents. Patients and staff from the nearby Royal Hospital bring variety to the congregation from time to time.
