About St Peter’s

St Peter LogoSt Peters is situated on Penhill Drive. We are an inclusive modern catholic parish:

Catholic: We believe in Christ’s universal love, made visible in the sacraments: Baptism & Confirmation, Holy Communion, Confession & Absolution, Anointing of the sick,  Marriage, and in the Ordination of Bishops, Priests and Deacons.  Our worship and our practice reflect this belief in God’s love made visible, and we celebrate this in the faith community in worship, and in our wider community through service.

Inclusive:  We believe that the love of Christ made visible in the sacraments is for all people, a gift to be received rather than a reward to be earned. We are members of Inclusive Church, and subscribe to the the Inclusive Church Statement of Belief:

“We believe in inclusive Church – church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
