For us, worship basically means how we live our lives in a way that shows what we’re about.
It’s the outward expression of the stuff in our hearts and minds – what we care about, what we believe, what we value, what we love… all lived out creatively alongside others in a way which is open to all and doesn’t shy away from the realities of the world.
It’s a long way from ‘Kum-by-yah’….
We worship one God here, but we know there are lots of different ways to do this – and no one way is the right way.
‘Church’ can mean different things to different people, and we love it that a spectrum of worshipping communities meet here at St Peter’s House.
The Wednesday Weekly Gathering (name tbc!) – Every Wednesday, 12.30-2.30pm
This is a brand spanking new worshipping community – so new, we don’t quite know what its going to be yet.
What we do know is that there are folk out there who may not ‘go to church’ in a trad way, but do feel drawn to meeting with others and exploring faith and working out what it could mean for their lives.
Join the journey and let’s see what happens! We’re going to begin meeting in September, Wednesday 20th onwards, at 12.30. Email any of the team for more information, and follow us on twitter/facebook for regular updates.
More traditional in style and service, this community is made up from people of all church traditions and meets weekly at St Peter’s House.
They are a diverse bunch, representing many different cultures, countries and backgrounds, and everyone is welcome to join with them for their weekly worship.
Communion happens every week – except on the 1st Sunday of the month, where a shared lunch follows the morning service.

This group is primarily aimed at students and young Mandarin speakers from all over the world, although others are welcome to come along and take the opportunity to meet folk with a whole other world-view.
Mandarin Fellowship meet regularly for a mix of activities – you’ll find all the details on our calendar page – but their main weekly focus is Friday evenings. They eat and drink together, sing, and have a variety of workshops and worshipping times.

Quakers are a faith group committed to working for equality and peace.
They try to live in peace, truth, simplicity and equality – all of which sounds excellent to us! Believing that God is encountered in ourselves and those around us, Quaker meetings offer an opportunity for spiritual exploration and reflection.
The monthly meeting for worship is grounded in silence, and all are welcome to join. If you’d like more information, please get in touch with Rachel.email@example.com or take a look at www.facebook.com/M13quakers
