Welcome to a church with heart at the
heart of the community
St Peter's Church is at the centre of the parish and village of Burnham and is Eucharistically centred in the liberal catholic tradition.
Our church family is an active and visible presence in the heart of the Burnham community, strong on fellowship and celebrating God’s love with those around us. Our services offer a range of worship with music playing a major part. We are blessed with a talented organist, strong well-led choir, Keynotes music group, tower and hand bell groups.
We believe that our church family is welcoming and inviting, and we reflect this through social and fellowship events which take place throughout the year, many of which raise funds to support St Peter’s.
While our church is a busy place, we have a compassionate and caring ethos which is supported by a wide variety of groups and activities. Although we view ourselves as warm and friendly, we recognise that those new to faith or our church can sometimes be a little overwhelmed by the business of it all.
We try very hard to be welcoming both at our services and on a day to day basis but if it all seems a bit much, please join us for a cup of tea or coffee and hopefully we will get our act together.
There will be a a Bell Peal attempt by a visiting bell band on Wednesday 10th November 10-11am
St Peter's is an Inclusive Church.
We believe in inclusive Church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.
We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on the grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality.
We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ
