Celebrating God’s presence across the campus.

Welcome

Welcome to St Peter’s House: the home of the Student Christian Movement in Manchester!
St Peter’s seeks to be a house that offers:

  • A spiritual home to students and staff of all faiths and none, for reflection, refreshment, and renewal
  • A place where faith meets intellect and intellect meets faith
  • An inclusive community where we seek to break down barriers, where the whole world gathers and diversity is celebrated
  • A space to find and celebrate life through fellowship in Christ, sharing God’s love in worship, prayer, music and the arts,
  • A place where we are challenged to discover and embody the Kingdom values of justice, joy and peace.

We invite you to join us on the journey of faith
