The Civic and Parish Church of Bournemouth

Make a donation

Since 1865 St. Peter’s has welcomed visitors and worshippers, inspiring thousands of people every year, and standing as a witness to God’s glory in the heart of Bournemouth’s bustling town centre. It is a place of calm and peacefulness, an oasis in our busy lives.

It is a focus for worship, welcoming regular churchgoers, those who are new to church, and visitors to the town, to pray and worship with us. It is a centre of music and art, hosting regular concerts and events, and where the choral tradition is integral to our worship. And it is a base for mission, helping those who are lonely, lost, distressed, and in need.

St. Peter’s is a Grade 1 listed building and one of the oldest public buildings in Bournemouth. It is open every day for everyone to discover. And we need your help to sustain our work.
