Know God, Show God, Share God


Gildersome St Peter’s Church is a Christian community in the Anglican tradition which serves Gildersome, in South Leeds, a village with a population of about 5,000. The Church’s mission statement, which was drawn up by the congregation, is very short but describes our purpose: To know God, show God and share God.

St Peter’s is described by many as welcoming and lively. In every sense it is a ‘people’s church’. There are activities and groups which meet spiritual and social needs. There are facilities which can be used by the community. There is something for all ages and all levels of experience.

We realise that the work God is calling us to demands us to step out in faith; to exercise the Gifts of the Holy Spirit; and to recognise that many people key to the plan are not, as yet, members of the congregation!
