The Civic and Parish Church of Bournemouth

The Friends of St. Peter’s Church is an active social and fundraising group which supports the work of St. Peter’s.

In recent years the Friends have undertaken a programme of replacing and updating all of the lighting within the church, restoration of fine Victorian and Edwardian altar frontals and Eucharistic vestments. Current projects involve cleaning and re-varnishing the pews, providing pew cushions and organising a Tapestry Group to hand-embroider kneelers for the whole church. We have also purchased a new Display Cabinet for the bookstall.

We invite you to join the Friends of St. Peter’s Church, an organisation which forges links between those with a special regard for this very fine Victorian building. By becoming a member you will help to ensure the preservation of the fabric of the Church, its ornaments and furnishings, thus guaranteeing the future of one of Bournemouth’s gems. You will also receive a bi-annual News Letter and details of our social events. Just pick up an application form in church – all of the details you need are in it, but should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the parish office –

The Chairman is Chris Mayne and the Secretary is Peter Woods and they would be pleased to hear from anyone who would like to become involved in helping us.
