    Welcome to the Parish Church of St Peter

    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.

    A Message from the Rector;

    ANNOUNCEMENT OF RETIREMENT
     
    I,
     
    Michael John Phillips,
     
    a Priest in Holy Orders, at present holding the Office of Rector of St
    Peter in the Deanery of Jersey, situate on the Island of Jersey,
     
    Hereby announce to the Congregation of the Parish Church of St
    Peter and all people living in the Parish,
     
    that I have given Notice by a Deed in writing to The Dean of Jersey,
    and through him to the relevant Bishop,
     
    that I will retire from the stipendiary Ministry of God’s Holy Church
    on the seventh of August in the year of our Lord 2022,
     
    whilst nevertheless remaining in Holy Orders as a Priest for the rest
    of my life
     
    and I earnestly ask you, the people of God, to pray for me in that

    me to the Sacred Ministry forty-one years ago in 1981, through the
    Sacrament of Ordination:
     
    Of your charity pray also for Rae Mary Phillips, my dear wife,

    COMING TO CHURCH:

    From Father Michael;

    I need to update you on some important information as a result of last week’s monthly Rector and Church Officers Meeting:

    Firstly, it was decided that though the Government have not reimposed the obligatory wearing of Masks, we decided unanimously, that for the safety of us all, everyone should, within the Church building, WEAR MASKS, beginning from Advent Sunday, because of the worsening covid situation.  This is particularly important during the Christmas Tree Festival.

    Secondly, for all services, again from Advent Sunday, seating will only be available in every other row.  Individual seats however will not ticked or crossed, but every other row will be marked.  Please observe this.

    Thirdly, please note that it is still obligatory to sanitize your hands when coming in, so covid and flu germs are less likely to be brought into church and infect others be touch or inhalation, but also sanitize on the way out, for your own protection, in order to kill any such germs you could have picked up from inside the church from others.

    Fourthly, please chat outside at the end of the services, not inside: it is much safer. 

    Lastly, without wishing to cause any offence, it is best for us not to shake hands, for the time being, between each other.  I will not be shaking hands, not because I don’t want to, but so we can reduce the chances of catching or spreading covid or flu.

    For these reasons, Do please book ahead.

    Booking is encouraged, please contact Father Michael by email or leave a message on his answerphone (01543) 481805. For more details on the rules, please click here

    If you don't feel able to attend in person, please do watch the service on YouTube once it is uploaded on Sun or Mon.Search St Peter’s Church Jersey on youtube.com

    God bless,

    Father Michael
