Worship and Music
Sung Eucharist every Sunday at 9.30am
Our main service is the weekly sung celebration of the Holy Eucharist on Sunday mornings at 9.30am which follows the long established tradition of Anglo-Catholic worship with incense is used at every service. The words of the liturgy are in traditional language with congregational singing of John Merbecke's Communion Setting, hymns from the New English Hymnal and the service ending with the Angelus except for the third Sunday of every month when the Eucharist ends with a short service of Benediction.
Each service lasts about 75 minutes and is followed by light refreshments in St Peter’s Rooms immediately adjacent to the church to which all are invited.
In addition to our Sunday worship, other Festivals and Holy Days in the course of the Church's year may be celebrated most particularly during Advent, Lent and Holy Week.
Midweek Said Eucharist every Tuesday at 10.00am
A said service of Holy Communion takes place on Tuesday mornings every week at 10.00am. Please do join us for this quiet, reflective service lasting a little over 30 minutes; a chance to reconnect with God in the midst of the working week.
Information about all our current services and activities may be found on our Church Diary page.
St Peter's Singers
St Peter’s Singers is an unrobed, four part "ad-hoc" choir which meets in church at 8.30am of the fourth Sunday of each month (except August) prior to singing at the 9.30am service on that day. The choir is open to all who enjoy singing and have the confidence to maintain a voice part after a short rehearsal session.
If you are interested in joining the choir or would like more details, please email Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Tony Blyth 01353 612130. Alternatively, please meet us in church at 8.30am on the fourth Sunday of the month.
Dress code for services: black or dark clothing
The present organ replaced an "American" organ used at the Dedication Service in 1890.
The one-manual pipe organ with pedal board is by Hill and Son of London, a distinguished firm which has produced a number of cathedral organs and exported internationally. Its date of installation is unknown but it was no later than 1905 when it is said to have received its first tuning.
