The Civic and Parish Church of Bournemouth

Welcome to St. Peter’s Church

St Peter’s is a warm, lively and inclusive church in the open and liberal catholic tradition of the Church of England. We cherish education, music and literature, and we are evangelistic in our desire to embed personal prayer and Bible-study in the church culture and the life of our town.

Standing in the very centre of Bournemouth, St Peter’s is the spiritual heart of two of the newest and increasingly well-regarded universities in Britain. It aspires to be the focus of Christian worship and of debates about religion, politics, and morality for all who live, study, work and visit here. Come and explore for yourself!
