ABOUT ST PETER'S
Everyone, whatever your age or background, is welcome at St Peter's.
We are a community of people, mainly living in Glenfield, who gather to worship Jesus, learn what it means to follow him in today's world, and share his love as we serve the wider community in his name. Some of us have been doing this for years, some are very new; all of us make mistakes and need God's grace and help.
What we believe
We believe that everyone is invited to know God and to respond to his love. We believe this is possible because of Jesus, God’s only Son, who died for us so that we can be forgiven the things we've done wrong and rose again so we can have new life. We believe God gives the Holy Spirit to all those who believe in Jesus and choose to follow him so that we can know his presence and call him Father.
We are part of the Church of England, in the diocese of Leicester.
If you are interested in exploring Christian faith further then please come along on a Sunday or contact Richard on the address below.
Our premises, both church and church centre, are accessible to those with disabilities through the main entrances and we aim to make everything we do accessible to all. For example, if you wish to receive communion where you are seated, simply ask one of the welcomers. Both buildings are fitted with a loop system and we have large print news sheets, hymn books and service books. There is a separate toilet for use by the disabled in the Church Centre. If you have a disability and we could make better provision for you, please let us know.
MEET OUR PEOPLE
Richard has been at St Peter's since early 2016. He is also the Rector of All Saints' in Newtown Linford. Before coming to this part of Leicestershire he spent nearly 10 years working on the outskirts of Solihull. The son and grandson of vicars, you'd believe this was the only line of work he was qualified for, but he spent a number of years building websites first. As his twitter profile says: 'Christ, Gloucester, England and Spurs. Followed probably in that order.'
Sharon has lived in west Leicester since 1982, and was warden and reader at the Martyrs before ordination in 2018. She's had a variety of roles and careers, most recently and ongoing part-time as a Health Care Professional. She can be regularly seen jogging or cycling through Glenfield as she trains for a marathon.
