All services at St Peter’s are currently suspended as we do all we can to protect each other during the coronavirus pandemic. Following guidance from the Church of England and the diocese, the church building has been closed since mid-March and we know this has been difficult for many people.
We are really pleased therefore that, from Sunday July 5, we will be able to restart opening the church twice a week for private prayer only. Do have a look at the page we have set up here which explains more about what this will involve and how it will work.
The building has been closed but the church has not! The regular rhythm of daily prayer has continued, we have been supporting each other through teh shiupley Neighbours project and have been worshipping together every week online, using Facebook and YouTube. We have set up a page on the website with more information about our activities during the current restrictions – please click here to find out more. Visit the website every week for posts about activity each Sunday and you can also find out more on our Facebook page.
St Peter’s usually has three services on a Sunday. On some special occasions and holidays the two morning services combine at 10.30am instead.
9:30am Sunday Holy Communion
A more traditional service of Holy Communion or morning worship on alternating weeks.
Coffee is served in the church lounge following the service (joint with the 11.15 congregation).
10.30am Sunday Combined Service
On some special occasions and holidays, the 9.30am and 11.15am services are replaced by a combined 10.30am service. Please check the weekly notices or calendar for details.
11:15am Sunday Live!
An informal service lasting about an hour, with groups for children and young people, Sunday Live! is great for families – it’s noisy, fun and very relaxed.
We all worship together for a short time before the children go into groups. Our groups for children and young people provide a fun and exciting environment to explore the Christian faith – learning about God and how he wants us to live for him.
- The Ark: 0 to year 1
- Explorers: years 2 to 5
- Pathfinders: years 6 to 8
Coffee is served before the service from 10.45am (joint with the 9.30am congregation).
6.30pm Sunday Evening Service
A mix of the two morning services in style, and alternating Holy Communion and evening worship on a weekly basis.
11.00am Wednesday Communion
There is a quiet service of Holy Communion every Wednesday in the Hope Chapel.
