Enjoy the Beauty of St Peter’s Church!

OPEN CHURCH


St Peter’s Church will be open Saturdays and Sundays 10 am – 4 pm** throughout July, August and September!

Please come and have a look round our beautiful building and take time to enjoy the peace and quiet.

For Beatles fans, this is an opportunity to visit the Church that was an important part of John’s childhood.  Mimi attended regularly, and John sang in the choir and once tried his hand at bell-ringing.  Make sure to ask the volunteers to point out the spot where John sat in the choir stalls, or the area of the Church where Mimi liked to sit for services.

Two of John’s uncles are also remembered in the Church – his uncle Robert is listed on the war memorial, and uncle George is buried in St Peter’s graveyard.

 

** Please note that access to some areas of the Church may vary during Church Sunday services and for special services such as weddings and funerals, and that all times are subject to change at short notice.

Church Hall opening over the Anniversary Weekend

THURSDAY JULY 6: 10AM – 3PM (FREE ADMISSION)

St Peter’s Church Hall will be open to visitors on the 60th anniversary of the day that John and Paul met.  Come and stand on the spot where Paul ‘auditioned’ to join the Quarrymen and musical history was made!

The musical legacy of that historic day will be celebrated with live performances from the fabulous Eddie Devlin and Catherine Cook, and some of the current members of the congregation who were at the Church Fete on July 6, 1957, will be on hand to share their memories of that fateful day

There will also be the opportunity to purchase exclusive souvenirs, including t-shirts, key-rings, commemorative posters, badges and postcards, as well as the Hymnals and Prayer Books used during the 1950s.  These items are only available at the Church and cannot be purchased online.

Further details of this and other anniversary events will be announced soon!

#CelebrateCommunity
#StPeters60

Welcome

From July 5th-9th 2017, St Peter’s Church and Bishop Martin CE Primary School welcomed the world to Woolton Village as we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the meeting of two seemingly ordinary Liverpool lads who went on to change the world. On that day, no-one dreamed what John meeting Paul would lead to.

The events of that day, 60 years ago, that took place on what is now the playing field for Bishop Martin CE Primary School and in St Peter’s Church Hall, showed that magic can happen anywhere, even at a local village fete, when a community comes together. Even without the Beatles connection, that alone is worth celebrating!

We want to share our blessings with as many people as possible, and so during 2017 we will be holding a series of celebratory events, including having the Church Hall and School grounds open during the anniversary weekend in July and International Beatle Week celebrations in August.

This website is run by the A-Team — volunteers from St Peter’s Church and Bishop Martin CE Primary School PTA — and is intended as a hub of information on the history and heritage of the Church and School, as well as future events.
