St Peter’s Church or The Ancient Chapelry of Formby, its historic title – lies in the north east quarter of Formby, north of Liverpool, where it has been a centre of Christian worship and service within the community for centuries.
A member of the world-wide Anglican communion, St Peter’s enjoys a rich covenant with the other Christian denominations in the town.
Its liturgies use both Common Worship and the BCP. The services are ordered, thoughtful, innovative and imaginative, and music plays an important part.
Sunday Club for children.
Children start in church at 10.00am and then move to the Bier House during the Gradual hymn for lots of fun. All children are welcome though it is designed for the younger age group.
