Welcome to St Peter's
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.

75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF JERSEY
On Friday 8 May at 11 am a Service of Thanksgiving for the Liberation of Jersey is to be held at Parish Church of St Peter – it is sincerely hoped that all will be able to attend what I hope will be a memorable occasion.
The Masonic Choir, ‘The Craftsmen’ will sing selected musical items and also
Audrey Lucas will recite in Jerraise rousing speeches from Wartime Leaders (English versions will be available!).
Following the Service refreshments will be served in the Parish Hall to which all are welcome.
In addition a ‘Flower Festival of Memories’ will also be staged within the Church. This Flower Festival will run over the whole of the Liberation Weekend, commencing with the Service on Friday 8 May 2020 until the end of the 6pm Evensong on Sunday 10 May 2020.
In order to put on such a large and stunning Festival we are asking for financial
support from the Congregation and hopefully the wider Parish and are therefore respectfully asking for donations for the purchase of flowers. If you are able to help in this way, please kindly make cheques payable to the ‘Parish Church of St Peter’ marking the back with the words ‘Flower Festival’. Please give them to the Almoner Mary Killmister. Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
You may like to know, that the funds raised during the Thanksgiving Service and the Flower Festival of Memories, will be to the benefit of the Red Cross (2/3rds) and the Parish Church of St Peter (1/3rd).
I hope all will enter into the spirit of these two events as we give thanks to God for the Liberation of the island.
Father Michael Phillips
Rector of St Peter
