St. Peter's is a lively, family-friendly Church with both traditional & modern services & strong community links. We have a total congregation of about 160 & a thriving Sunday School. Our Church is comfortable, warm & welcoming!
Communion is open to ALL those who are baptised and EVERYONE is welcome at the Communion rail for a blessing if this is preferred,
Under 5's are VERY welcome with their own corner for parent-supervised quiet play (though we enjoy the occasional "contributions" from little voices!).
Seating up to 400, St. Peter's is a popular & attractive venue for Weddings & Baptisms as well as occasional concerts.

St Peter's Sunday School & Friday Night Club
For children & young people from the age of 3 years. We meet every Sunday except for the Summer Holidays.
Each week we play games, sing hymns etc before joining the adults in church where we take part in the Communion & sing.
After Communion we go into age appropriate groups & follow the Scripture Union syllabus involving Bible readings, games, quizzes & activities. We take part in Family Services each month & have special services at Christmas & Easter as well as a Christingle Service.
We have a trip each year as well as a Christmas party & host a tea party for the senior members of Church at Easter. Every summer we have a holiday club.
