Welcome to our website

Ancient building, living church.

St Peter’s Church is known to be welcoming. Whether you visit for a service or just visit our web site, we hope you will find it to be so.

Our church has been around for about 900 years but the people who now worship here are determined that it should be relevant in the 21st century.

To put our purpose in a nutshell it is: to be different and make a difference. We seek to do that through the priorities of Worship, Fellowship, Discipleship, Ministry and Mission.

If you are looking for information on Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals etc… it is all here.

We believe that every person, child or adult should receive the respect and care that they deserve as God, in his love, has made them. At St Peter’s Church we believe that abuse of any kind is unacceptable.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) of St Peter’s Birstall takes its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and vulnerable adults seriously. The PCC adopted the Diocese of Leeds Safeguarding Policy at its meeting on 13th May 2019.
