"To visit St Peter’s is just mind blowing - what a privilege."
DJ Konz, Pilgrim
World Heritage candidate St Peter's was originally built as part of a monastery, but it is now a parish church - meaning people have come here to worship God for more than 1,300 years!
Our main service is a Eucharist on Sundays at 11am, but there's much more to us than that! Why not come along and find out for yourself?!
