Our weekly services are a great way to get to know St Peter’s Church a little better. Whoever you are, whether a committed Christian, someone wanting to investigate Christianity, someone seeking answers to questions or just curious, you are very welcome to join us for any of our services.
During the service a variety of things happen from week to week. We sing, pray and hear the Bible read and taught.
After the service we share refreshments together, which gives us a great chance to catch up with each other.
