Welcome to St Peter’s, a thriving and inclusive Anglican church in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. At St Peter’s, we encourage all to grow in the experience, knowledge and love of God.
St Peter’s has been a focal point for worship in the local community since the 13th century, and we recently celebrated our 800th anniversary. The Parish of Great Berkhamsted is in the Church of England Diocese of St Albans. We still use the historic name of Great Berkhamsted in our official parish title (there is another town in Hertfordshire about 25 miles east of our parish called Little Berkhamsted) but people usually just call this church St Peter’s Berkhamsted.
Faith and Worship
We follow a traditional Anglican style of worship, centred on the Eucharistic tradition. Our worship is open to everyone, whether you are a regular churchgoer, coming to us for the first time or exploring faith.
On Sundays, we celebrate the Eucharist at 8am and at the 9:30am Sung Eucharist. Music forms a large part of our worship and our choir sings at the main morning service as well as a monthly choral evensong.
St Peter’s in the Community
St Peter’s Church is a focal point in the Berkhamsted community, with a calendar of events throughout the year, including concerts, family events and charity fundraisers. St Peter’s is also linked with two local church schools.
The Church is here for everyone, especially for anyone facing distress, bereavement or serious illness. Through our Pastoral Care Network and our Grief and Loss Support Group we help many people through difficult times. Please contact us if you are in need of support.
