Corona Virus Update

The PCC have taken the decision to suspend public worship at this time. It has not been an easy decision but feel it is necessary in the present circumstances. Our services will go online only and you can find the order of service on this page. This decision will be reviewed regularly and we will keep you informed of any changes.

Our services on Sunday will be 9.00am Morning Prayer and 10.00am Service of the Word. Both will be live streamed to our Facebook page and uploaded to Youtube.

Morning and Evening prayer daily will be live streamed on Facebook.
Please pray at this time for all affected by this pandemic – especially the NHS, key workers, our schools and young people and all those who are isolated across our communities.

We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.

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.
