Sunday services

At 10am on Sunday we hold our main worship service.

What to expect

Our 10am service lasts around one hour, generally finishing about 11am. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are currently unable to serve refreshments after the services, and various other health and safety rules are in place which you can read about here.

We celebrate birthdays; share joys and concerns; listen to a talk (normally lasting about 10 minutes, during which there is no pressure to laugh at the ‘jokes’!) and, of course, pray together.

All the words you need (song words and prayers) are displayed on screens around the church, but there’s no pressure to participate. At the moment, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, congregational singing is not allowed.

Music is mainly provided by live musicians, and draws on classic and contemporary worship songs, as well as our own versions of favourite hymns.

Communion

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the way we celebrate communion has had to change, and we cannot promise exactly which weeks communion will be celebrated. We will announce on this website, and on various social media channels, the weeks on which we will be having communion.

Facilities for children

Children are very welcome at our services, but don’t worry if they are a bit noisy – it’s what children do best!

You are welcome to keep your school-age children with you for the full service, as due to the Coronavirus pandemic we cannot promise there will be any separate childrens groups.

Afterwards

We are currently unable to serve refreshments after our services, but we would love to meet you and have a chat (outside, observing social distancing guidelines). If it is your first time visiting St Peters we would also appreciate you filling in our visitor card to help us find out more about you.
