St. Peter's Anglican Church, Gayton, Staffordshire.

Whoever you are and wherever you are on a journey of faith you are most welcome.

We are  part of ten inclusive, friendly church communities within the church family of the Anglican Diocese of Lichfield. We aim to be building God's inclusive kingdom of unconditional love as we try to follow Christ in the footsteps of Saint Chad, our Diocese' founding Bishop. You are always welcome. This particular church is a small, extremely welcoming church of Saint Peter's, Gayton , Staffordshire.  We'd be delighted to meet you.

Our group of churches covers the Staffordshire villages of Burston, Fradswell, Gayton, Hixon, Hopton, Milwich, Salt, Sandon, Stowe by Chartley and Weston. It also includes the Mid Trent Academy Schools Trust that includes Saint Andrew's School Weston and Saint Peter's School, Hixon.

Shaped by inspirational leaders, each church and school interprets their Anglican identity and character to the local context.

We believe in an inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in an hospitable Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is inherently Eucharistic and sacramental, scripturally faithful but open to new insights;  which honours creation; which seeks to proclaim and apply the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.

We subscribe to The Armed Forces Covenant along with the Diocese and do all we can to support the Armed Forces of the Crown , those that support them and their families. Locally we are keen to support MOD Stafford.

May God's peace and blessing be upon you.

Women of Holy Week – an Easter Journey
You are invited to a 7-week series led by Rev’d Vivienne Starkie at 7-30pm on Thursdays throughout Lent.
3 Old School Close, Weston, ST18 0HF.
This series of meetings for Lent 2023 is based on the book "Women of Holy Week; An Easter Journey in Nine Stories" by Paula Gooder.
In this book we travel through Holy Week seeing events through the eyes of the women who were there. This book is readily available from most booksellers, however its purchase is not necessary as the stories are all short enough to be read on the night.
Please click on the "Join Online" button below to hear any of the nine Women of Holy Week stories.

Hop along to Gayton and join in the fun on Sunday 2nd April, 12-00pm until 4-00pm
