St Peter's Walsall
St Peter's Walsall 2014

We're an inner-city church seeking to bring Hope & Transformation through the good news about Jesus to the Community, College & Centre of Walsall, West Midlands.

‘Without the plant we wouldn’t be here’ – Read our story on the Church of England Facebook page.


St Peter's first opened its doors in 1841, and re-launched at Christmas 2013 – so once again we're praying and working as St Peter's becomes a vibrant, welcoming church, worshipping God and loving the people of our community. Please find out more, and get involved - we'd love to see you.

Come and worship God, make friends, and change the world!

This is an informal service with lively worship music and practical Bible teaching, usually with Holy Communion. There's also
a range of children's activities. It lasts about 1½ hours, followed by something to drink and a chance to chat.

Wednesday 11am

Wednesday Worship Services
are a bit more traditional – so if you like hymns and some quiet reflection in the company of good friends this one's for you. It lasts about 1 hour. Refreshments are available after every service, sometimes with a shared lunch, and we also pay monthly visits to the residents of the Arboretum Nursing Home and Harden Hall.

Wednesday 7.30pm

Betel of Britain Worship at 7.30pm & Drop-In at 8.15pm
There's good music, good teaching and good company – and it's especially good if the idea of 'church' seems a bit much. Afterwards there's a chance to meet the guys from Betel and find out what it's really like to break free from addiction and live in a Betel house. Contact Betel at Betel.UK.


Reading the Bible every day as a way to know and love God personally is so important – that's why we encourage everyone to make the most of resources like Bible in One Year which gives practical, helpful and encouraging support, including readings, notes and online audio. You can download the app, subscribe with email, or just go to the BIOY web site.

Another great framework for lots of daily Bible reading and scripture memorization is the Church of England's Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer. Find out more at the Daily Prayer web site, or download the Daily Prayer app for Apple iOS or Android


We're learning to take hold of everything Jesus has done for us in our daily lives through the extended prayer John Eldredge created (See Prayers We Pray), and we've worked through what it means and how it all helps. The prayer itself and the weekly notes from our talks are provided here for personal and community group reflection.

Eden Walsall

Eden Walsall

We're so plesed to be partnering with Eden – a grass-roots community movement which serves people, and young people in particular, in tough areas. A few times a week, our Eden Team Leaders, Jem and Gav Hicks, work with local young people in Proffitt Street Park, and visit Walsall College too. Have a look at these articles from the Message for a flavour of what's going on:

We're setting up an Eden team as well – people who choose to live and work here – so if you want to worship God, make friends and change the world, then come to Walsall and Join Eden!

The Alpha Course


We love Alpha! Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Typically Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.

Our current Alpha courses ended in December. If you'd like to come to a future Alpha, or if you have any questions about it, send us an email, or give us a ring on 01922 640955.

Betel of Britain Drop-in

Do you know someone struggling with addiction of any kind? Need hope and a fresh start? There is effective, life-changing help available now at Betel of Britain.

Every Wednesday you can come and meet the guys from Betel of Britain at St Peter's Church, Walsall, from 7.30pm-9.30pm. The evening begins at 7.30pm with a time of worship and Bible teaching, and straight afterwards at 8.15pm it's the Drop-in. There's a bite to eat, some friendly faces and hope for everyone.

Community Groups

Our midweek gatherings are a time to be equipped and refreshed, and to help each other grow in our faith. We meet all together, and we meet in smaller groups too:

1st Tuesday: Church at 8pm to pray together.
2nd Tuesday: Small groups where we live.
3rd Tuesday: Sharing a meal in the Community Hall at 8pm.
4th & 5th Tuesdays: Small groups where we live. Community Groups meet as part of St Peter's Walsall

There is also a group which meets at 12.30pm every Wednesday in church as part of our Wednesday Worship activities.

We'd love you to be involved. Please ask for more details about joining in!

Pub Quiz

Every once in a while we're at the Pretty Bricks in John Street for the pub quiz. The main aim is to chill out and make friends – but you can check the brain cells are still engaging as well.

Watch here for the date of the next quiz…


We are safe here! We have a safeguarding policy, and our Children’s Leaders have DBS checks and Safeguarding Training. Please note that parents are responsible for their children before and after the children’s groups in the the hall, and please respect boundaries: only children’s workers should be in the children’s group area. If something makes you uncomfortable please pass it on to an appropriate person: Jem Hicks, Kim Baker, Kate Gray or Gav Burnage. You can also contact the Diocese of Lichfield on 01543 306030 or 0845 120 4550. Thank you for making our church safe!
