St Peter's Youth and Children

In these difficult times we are not held back by our buildings, which are all closed until further notice. We continue to offer loads of stuff for kids and young people

Please contact us if you need help, prayer or just someone to chat with.

Contact Sarah, our Youth Minister, by email: sarah@stpetersparish.info




LIGHThouse at St Peter's is still grounded but we are planning to re-open in the not too distant future! We are not sure how this will look but we will keep you updated! We hope and pray that you are coping with the new normal and that your children are settling well in their new classes at school. Please click on the link below for a back to school greeting from LIGHThouse:
