Welcome.

A very warm welcome to St Peter's Parish Church, Jersey, a church that has stood on this site for some 1000 years witnessing to the local community. You are very welcome to join us for any of our services, to use the church for private prayer or meditation or indeed just to wander around.

We are a church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Church of England and welcome people of all backgrounds and traditions. Our work at the heart of the community includes very strong outreach to children and schools within the Parish including St Peter's Primary and St George's Prep. We also run adult study groups at various times throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

Parish Notices:
  • END OF STUDENT PLACEMENT: Angela Le Sueur

    It has been a joy to have Angela here and she has certainly thrown herself into everything that has been asked of her, taking part in services and other activities within the Church, in residential homes, in sick visiting and so much more. She now has to write a 6,000 word appraisal of the whole experience…no pressure!!  I’m sure all of us have profited by her example and I know all have taken her to heart.  We will continue to watch Angela’s progress over the remaining time of her course at St Augustine’s College, Canterbury, as she seeks to complete her training to become a full Lay Reader.  I for one, have felt enriched by Angela’s ministry and have been excited to play a small part in her training: I’m sure you have too.  Please continue to pray for her.
