St Peter’s Church and Strawberry Field

St Peter’s Church has supported the redevelopment plans for Strawberry Field from the very beginning, and we are all so excited to see the work underway!

We are also delighted to welcome the Salvation Army to St Peter’s Church Hall for International Beatle Week.

This is a great opportunity to come along, chat to some of the people most involved with the project, see the display showing the current progress and future plans, pick up leaflets on the project, and show your support by buying some of the exclusive Strawberry Field merchandise!

Opening times:

Let’s help to Open the Gates!  It matters to St Peter’s Church too.
