MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Helen Murray, daughter of Ron and Sheila, is working in a favela in Rio. She is raising funds to build the children a garden.
Our picture shows Helen at a crèche with just a few of the thousands of children who will be helped by this garden.
Welcome to St Peter's Church.
Our motto is
"There's room for everyone at St Peter's"
so that includes you.
St Peter's is part of the Anglican Church (or Church of England.) Parts of the building date back nearly 900 years, or maybe longer.
Have a look on the Services page to see what we offer or use the Contacts page to ask us a question. We look forward to seeing you.
