As a school we are very proud of our connections with St Peter's Church. We would like to share some of its very interesting history with you.

 

Over a Century of Services.

From its origins in 1902, when services were held in the mission room at St Peter's School, the church has grown and developed. The old church building was opened in 1906 as a mission church of Holy Trinity, until St Peter's became a full parish on 29th June 1931. The old church was a wooden building in need of constant repair and it was decided in the mid 1950s that a new church was needed. St Peter's parishioners were asked to raise £15000 as their share of the cost. The money was raised by various means and by December 1959 the target had been achieved.

In June 1960, the plans for the new church had been agreed and Dr Spencer, a local GP cut the first turf. The Venerable Archdeacon Arthur White , who had been St Peter's first curate in 1909, laid the foundation stone on 17th September 1960. The new church was consecrated on the 16th August 1961 by the then Bishop of Liverpool, Dr Clifford Martin. There was a stark contrast in design between the old church and the new, the new building being in line with the style of the period.

In June 2016 the Church building had to be closed. Church services are now held in the school hall every Sunday. 

All our families are very welcome to attend the services which are held every Sunday at      10.30am. Sunday school, which all our children may attend is held during each Sunday morning service.
