Welcome to St Peter’s Church.
We are a Roman Catholic church made up of the old church designed by Pugin, the new church and three church halls called the Pugin Rooms. I am the Parish Priest, Fr Michael, and I thank you for visiting our website.

Every Summer has a story!
To those going on holiday, have a lovely time!
For those coming to mass, so great to have you here!
We all welcome the great news that our churches are open for holy Mass again.
Our thanks to those who have volunteered as stewards and cleaners.
Without their stirling efforts we would have to cease to celebrate
Sunday masses in public.
Our Archbishops of England have written a letter reminding us that we
‘cannot simply return to how things were before lockdown and that ‘there
will be some differences in how the celebration takes place.’
Here are some reminders
•There will be a cap on the number able to attend Mass as social distancing means that we cannot use every pew and every seat. It is quite possible some worshippers will have to be turned away, please come early
•One way system in place – please enter the New Church at the cemetery door and exit at the door to the car park
•The Mass will be shorter
•No congregational singing (droplets from our breath might spread the virus!)
•No children’s liturgy
•Communion of one kind will be distributed over a physical barrier (a table). Please extend your arms at full length and put one palm over the other when receiving it in your hands (not to receive it directly in the mouth). This is to be silent.
•Social distancing and hygiene to be observed, please apply hand gel upon entering the church
•Do not get up unless guided by a steward
•The collection will be taken as you leave the church in a basket marked Offering & Candles
•It will not be possible to gather after Mass for tea or coffee.
Bishop David reminds us that the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation remains for the time being. Thus there is at present no obligation for parishioners to attend Sunday Mass.
WEEKDAY MASSES: Again we await guidance and above all the availability of Stewards and Cleaners for each Mass. For the time being we are not able to reinstate public weekday Masses until we have two volunteers under the “vulnerable” age of 70 to act as stewards for each Mass.
ANNIVERSARIES: Please pray for those whose anniversaries occur about this time: Odette Delisle, Margaret Beal, Muriel Dobbin, William Murphy, Madeleine Durbec, Jacqueline Thompson, Nicholas Thomas, Francis Powell, Kathleen Bushell, Glive Patricia Osnowska, Freda Bainbridge, Radek Josef Fismistr, Matilda Galliano, Marie Perrin, Cecilia Steinle, Charles Tilling, Amelia Charlotte Scott- Murray, and Tim Pascall. May they rest in peace.
COLLECTIONS: We need counters on our rota. Gloves and spray will be provided along with the collection COUNTING ROTA: George Thomas & Eamon Nally
