Whether you’re exploring the Christian faith or you’ve been a Christian for a while, we hope you will come and visit us at St.Peter’s!
St. Peter’s is a diverse community of faith, hope and love in the heart of the city, committed to live by faith, to be known by love, and to be a voice of hope. We take seriously the preaching of God’s Word, the ministry of the Holy Spirit and demonstrating God’s love for the community. We seek to help all to come to faith in Jesus Christ: to be welcoming and loving to all; to equip people to be confident in sharing their faith and clear about God’s call on their lives; to serve one another and our community; and to involve everyone in ministry. This is the vision we aspire to and by God’s grace we are moving forward together on this journey! We hope that you will find St. Peter’s to be a church where you can be fully the person God calls you to be.
Please come and see us, and whether you want to consider making St. Peter’s your church or you simply want to visit, we assure you of a very warm welcome.
At St. Peter’s, safeguarding is an important part of our life and mission. We want to see everyone flourish and experience fullness of life, and ensuring that people are cared for appropriately is a key part of that. As Bishop Alastair, the former Bishop of Derby, writes:
Robust safeguarding arrangements are important at all levels of the Diocese because children, young people and vulnerable adults are an important part of the church’s family. The way we treat them is vital to our ability to keep them safe and is central to our Mission in the communities in which we serve. We need to value the part each of us plays, in all aspects of church life and we respect the differing needs each of us might have.
St. Peter’s has adopted the current Diocesan Safeguarding policies and procedures, which can be viewed at www.derby.anglican.org/en/about-us/safeguarding-information-menu.html. The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, Julian Hodgson, can be contacted on 07540 719447.
