Who we are

St Peter’s is the Church of England church for Westfield, providing for the spiritual needs of the area together with our sister church, the parish church St. James’, Preston Plucknett. We are a community of people trying to worship and follow Jesus, and to work out what that means in the 21st century in our local community. St. Peter’s people meet in our church in Coronation Avenue (opposite the chip shop).

St. Peter’s is strongly involved in the local community and we have a brand-new Community Centre which is at the heart of activity in the area.  In addition to supporting the activities of other groups, we run Community Coffee on Monday mornings where all are welcome, Tea and Toast (an after-school club for teenagers – by invitation) on Monday afternoons and Messy Church for families every second Saturday of the month at 10.30-12.30.  There is also a Beetle Drive every Friday afternoon and Bingo once a month on a Friday.  

Prayer is at the heart of all we do.  

The church is open for prayer every weekday via the Community Centre entrance when the Community Centre desk is manned.  There are also specific times of more structured corporate prayer in the church other than Sunday mornings.  

There is a midweek Holy Communion every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at noon.

Prayers for Westfield take place every second Monday from 6.30 to 8pm. We usually share a meal together in the church at the beginning.  Polat’s Fish and Chips are excellent value and the portions are very generous.

Celtic Morning Prayer on Tuesday mornings stopped for COVID, but is due to restart in July 2022 at 10.30 (after the Health Walk and finishing with Coffee (or flexercise!).
