    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.

    CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL 2021

    Dear Friends,

    PARISH CHURCH OF ST PETER CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL

    On behalf of Father Michael Phillips and Church Officers, I am so pleased to announce that the Christmas Tree Festival will take place once again this year.  Hooray!

    Needless to say however, your help is asked for and I do hope you will once again be able to participate by exhibiting a suitably decorated tree.

    The Festival gives so much pleasure to all who visit: it is especially wonderful seeing the joy on the faces of the many children who come, as well as adults.  Equally after such long months of restrictions for us all, but particularly those living within residential care facilities, setting sight on so many wonderful trees, so beautifully decorated brings so much pleasure.

    Here is the relevant information you need to know.  Please note the changes to days and timings:-

    Setting up of trees will take place on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 December

    between the hours of 10 am to 6 pm.   Just to remind you trees may be real

    or faux, decorated as you wish, but please include lights to give maximum impact.

    The Tree Festival commences on Sunday 5 December at 4 pm with a Special 30 minute,

    ‘Tree Lighting Service’. The church will close at 6pm on this day.  

    From Monday 6 to and including Saturday 11 December the Festival will be open from 10 am to 6pm.

    The final day is Sunday 12 December.  There are the usual Sunday services at 8 & 1030 in the morning.  The Festival ends with a 40 minute Christingle Service at 4 pm at the end of which the church will close.

    Please kindly remember to dismantle your trees on Monday 13 Dec between 10am and 6pm or Tuesday 14 December between 10am and 1pm only, because there is a School Carol Service that night.

    Please be so kind as to let me know, as soon as possible, if you will once again be able to join in this wonderful event. Either email me on marykilly23@gmail.com or call on 743780.

    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
