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!
This Church welcomes children and wants them to be safe when they are on church premises or attending a church run event. We have adopted the House of Bishops’ Safeguarding Policy “Promoting a Safer Church”. A copy of this policy is kept on the notice board just inside the front door of Church. If you have any concerns about any child’s wellbeing please contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer
