Keep us, good Lord,

in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

From Our Vicar

St Peter’s Church (formerly Holy Trinity) is the town centre church in Darwen, Lancashire. The church and parish centre are open most days. Visitors are guaranteed a warm welcome to any of the services or events taking place information about which is found on this website.

The church family seeks to maintain the church building as a place of welcome and hospitality for all and this is reflected in the number of different groups based in both the church and parish centre as well as outreach work into the town centre and parish.

At the heart of St Peter’s is an understanding of the Gospel of Love and Inclusion. All are welcome here in this place.
