St Peter’s is a part of the Church of England. This means we believe in the great truths of the gospel, as articulated in scripture, that disciples of Jesus have believed in since the early church of Acts. 
 
From the earliest days of the Church, Christians developed short, simple summaries of the faith. These short statements became known as creeds. The word ‘creed’ comes from the Latin word credo, meaning ‘I believe and trust’. Two creeds in particular were developed in the early centuries of the Church, which have remained important to the Church and are regularly used in our worship today. 

People who were preparing for baptism in the early centuries of the Christian Church learned a short summary of what Christians believe. One version became accepted as the Apostles’ Creed, because it was thought to include the essential teaching of the 12 apostles, Jesus’ earliest followers. It was into that faith of the apostles that Christians were, and are, baptized.

The Apostles’ Creed is therefore a summary of what the Church teaches, and of what Christians together believe, rather than a detailed statement of individual and personal belief. Saying the Creed binds Christians together as a believing community, across different traditions and practices. The Apostles’ Creed unites Christians past and present, and from all over the world. 

Here at St Peter’s, you’ll never hear Bible teaching that deviates from these essential basic truths.


We believe in God, the Father almighty, 
creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, and whatever your life looks like right now, we’d love to welcome you to St Peter’s. Everyone’s invited; just come. We meet for our Sunday service at 10am, here’s what to expect when you come:



Most of us hesitate before walking into a place full of strangers, but don't panic – you will be welcome and there's no need to take part in anything you’re not comfortable with. We all come as we are, so there's no need to dress up - wear something that makes you feel comfortable. 

Where and When

We meet in the main Church building on the corner of Treadaway Hill and Kingsmead Road at 10am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team, if you're unsure where to sit then our team will help you to a seat.

We serve tea and coffee from 9:45am in the small hall opposite the Church, before the service begins. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Plan your journey: 
Our car park is quite small and on Sundays it's reserved for those who have mobility difficulties.
Additional parking is available on the Treadaway Estate opposite the church car park entrance. When making use of the parking on the business estate please only park alongside the fence-line parallel to the businesses. If parking on surrounding residential streets please be considerate as we want to be good neighbours.
Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up.

Our Service

Our 10am service is an informal service of contemporary worship for all the family. The service begins with a time of all-age worship before children join their groups. Each week we hear a relevant message from the Bible and take time to pray together and respond to what God is saying and doing as we worship. Once a month we share in Holy Communion together.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • The Ark (0 months to 3 years)
  • Little Lions (3-5 years)
  • All Stars (5-10 years)
  • St Peter's Youth (11+ years)

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome and worship. We really value worshipping God altogether as a family. At the end of the family worship someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy.
Please collect your children at the end of the service from their relevant group.
