ABOUT ST. PETER'S

We are an Anglican Church in the Edmonton Episcopal Area of the Diocese of London.

St Peter's is an attractive Victorian building in the Gothic style with a clock–tower. It was consecrated in 1859, and stands in its own garden, which is enjoyed by many residents and –by.

It offers a warm welcome to many visitors in the course of the year, with several hotels nearby, and has a friendly congregation of all ages and backgrounds.

Our building is also used for Christian worship by St. Gabriel's Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

OUR APPROACH

St Peter's worship is simple and unfussy in style, and Liberal Catholic in practice.

St Peter's is an inclusive church, affirming the priesthood of women, and accepts all sincere worshippers, regardless of age, race, or sexual orientation.

The Sacrament and Holy Oils are reserved, and there is prayer in the church most weekdays.
