Worship with St Peter’s
Due to the increased risk of COVID we have made the decision to close the church for services on Sundays and Wednesdays. This is never an easy decision but we must do all that we can to keep people safe.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will be streamed live. You will be able to watch it “live” at 10:30am on our Sunday Service link – you can also watch it any time after the event, you just can’t watch it before! The Evening Service is on zoom – please see below for details.
Our YouTube channel also shows previous Sundays services.
The church will be open for individual prayer each Wednesday from 10.30am to 11.30am.
Previous Sunday’s videos can be found on the Service Sheet page.

Welcome to the website of St. Peter’s Church, Formby.
Whether you’re just browsing or looking for specific information about St. Peter’s, we hope that you find this site both helpful and easy to use. If you have any feedback, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
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 will begin again as soon as it is safe to do so.
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.
St Peter’s “Fishy” Club
After school club for children in Years 3 to 6 of primary school. It is called “The Fishy” reminding us of St Peter’s job as a fisherman.

The Club meets after school during term time in St Peter’s Church Hall, Paradise Lane, on Wednesdays from 3.15pm – 4.10pm .
