Know God, Show God, Share God

We are the Anglican church which serves Gildersome, a village with a population of about 5,500. The Church’s mission statement, drawn up by the congregation, is short but succinct:

To Know God, Show God and Share God.

St Peter’s is 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.

We realise that God is calling us to step out in faith; to exercise the Gifts of the Holy Spirit; and to share God’s love with people both inside and beyond our existing congregation!

Lent Smartie Tube Appeal

For this year’s Lent Smartie Tube Appeal the young people of St. Peter’s will be raising money for Save the Children. They will be collecting spare change into Smartie tubes throughout the week and, each Sunday during Lent, the money will be tipped into our giant Smartie tin! For more information on the fantastic work done by this charity, who are celebrating 100 years of championing childrens’ rights this year, click the link above.
