St Peter's Church, Sark

St Peter's is the parish church of the beautiful island of Sark in the Channel Islands. It is part of the Bailiwick (and Deanery) of Guernsey, and is part of an ecumenical partnership with the Methodist Church in Sark. The Revd. David Stolton, the Methodist presbyter, is the resident minister in Sark, and authorised to lead services at St Peter's Church, as well as at the Methodist Church, and has an active role in caring for all the island's community, as well as welcoming visitors. All are very welcome and we especially welcome visitors to Sark to our services. Most Sunday's the service at St Peter's is at 11.15 a.m., but on the second Sundays of the month we join with our Methodist friends at Chapel at 11.15.m  and enjoy a shared meal after the service. The Methodist service otherwise is at 9.20 a.m., and on the third Sunday of the month this is an more informal "Breakfast Church" with a video and discussion time. Both churches are also open every day for quiet prayer or to light a candle, and for visitors to admire the beautiful stained glass windows, tapestries and historical information within St Peter's. The Methodist Chapel  has the Sanctuary Centre behind the church which acts as a church hall and community facility, and is also available for small  conferences and retreats, having modern conference AV facilities and a commercial kitchen

The Dean of Guernsey, the Very Revd. Tim Barker, is also the priest in charge of Sark, and comes to the island periodically to take services.
