NEW SERVICE STRUCTURE

At St Peter’s, the PCC are committed to ensuring that in-person fellowship, worship and pastoral care will continue as we find a new, post-Covid normal. Alongside this, we also feel it is important to continue to welcome and nurture the online community as well. For this reason, a new ‘mixed mode’ of ministry will continue to ensure we cater as effectively as possible to all, and enable God’s word and God’s love to be made known as fully as possible in this changed society - both in-person and online. 

Looking at the particular areas of need within our local community, the monthly service plan, structure and timing of church groups and activities has been amended. This changed structure enables us to move forward in a mixed mode of ministry, catering to both in-person and online communities, all part of the same church family. In amending the service pattern, all forms of worship that did exist will continue, but at a different time or frequency.

Visit our Services page to find out more.

HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR CHURCH

Generous giving is an integral part of Christian discipleship. As Paul writes, "But since you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you - see that you also excel in this grace of giving."

2 Corinthians 8:7

The church, along with many other charities, has been hit particularly hard by the Covid pandemic. We rely on your continued, generous support to keep St Peter's open for worship. Maintenance of the church needs to continue, and energy prices are rising.

The Parish Giving Scheme has been set up to best manage regular donations. Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, and your money will always be used in your parish.

Through your generous commitment, we can be assured of a regular source of income, and you will benefit from a system that is secure, confidential and easy to use, supporting your church today and in the future.


You can set up your donation easily on the Parish Giving Scheme website or call 0333 002 1271 and someone will set up your direct debit for you. You will need your bank account details, as well as the following information:

Parish Name: Filton St Peter

Our PGS Code: 05 06 05 077

Lines are open Mon-Fri 9-5pm

Please be sure to tick the box stating that you would be happy for your donation to increase marginally in line with inflation. You can find out more details about this by going to the PGS website. 

Did you know that you can also support St Peter's, at no extra cost to you, whenever you shop at Amazon? Click on the link to visit the website and select "The Parochial Church Council Of The Ecclesiastical Parish Of St. Peter, Filton" as your chosen charity. Every time you shop at smile.amazon.co.uk Amazon will donate a percentage directly to the church. And it won't cost you a thing!

WHO WE ARE

A welcoming Anglican Church with its heart in the sacraments and its place at the centre of the community

St Peter's Church is a church devoted to developing a holy consciousness. We believe that worship is something that can be expressed in everything we do, whether that be nourishing our bodies with food, chatting with friends, playing music, or enjoying nature. Our philosophy is deeply rooted in the Holy Scriptures and Sacraments; life’s only guidebook. Whatever your age, gender, race or ability, there is a special place for you at our Church. We offer members a chance to become part of something greater, to grow their love for God and for one another in our beautiful community. Get in touch today or swing by for a visit.
