As Christians, we seek to build the Kingdom of God and to live out our faith in action, sharing the love of Christ and working for greater social justice throughout the world. We do this is through the daily lives of all who are part of our church community, in our work, our participation in the life of the wider community, in charities, politics and among our neighbours.
As a Church, we also strive to respond to needs around us, to be thinking, committed and environmentally responsible. We seek to creatively share the love of God with our neighbours through the arts, music and local outreach initiatives. We support local, national and international causes, and we seek to develop strong relationships with the groups we support.
We are a 'Greener' church, seeking to reduce our impact on the environment as well as sharing awareness of green issues.
We have also won Fair Trade
Church status by committing ourselves to using only fairly traded coffee, tea
and other goods.
The charities St Peter's supports for 2023 are The Passage, Open Doors and Housing Justice. We support the Westminster Foodbank In recent years we have developed an acclaimed programme for volunteers working with refugees and asylum seekers in London through the Welcome Boxes programme. Alcoholics Anonymous also hold daily meetings at St Peter’s.
We support refugees and asylum seekers in London through our welcome box ministry where members of our congregation hold social events along with visiting and befriending refugees.
Fr Jonathan and Revd Julie visits St Peter’s C of E Primary School several times each week and take weekly services and early years assemblies. The children also come to the church for services, RE and assemblies. We value our link with our happy and successful school very much and work closely with the Head Ms Jane Carrington, the staff and the Governors. Many members of our congregation are also parents at the school and members of the congregation serve as governors.
The clergy of St Peter's also regularly visit and take assemblies at Westminster City Boys School, and at other schools including Grey Coat Hospital. Our work with children and young people is at the heart of our commitment to the wider community.
