Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, and in line with government and Church of England guidance, all services at St Peter’s are suspended until further notice.
Following new guidelines from the Diocese, we will no longer be able to open the church on Saturday and Sunday as we had hoped. I am sure you will understand that this is for the benefit of the whole community.
We will continue to pray for you, your families and your friends as well as for all of those impacted by the pandemic globally.
Please look out for others. Ring a friend or neighbour and let us together be a caring community.

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.
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.
There is a varied programme including; Bible stories through drama and creative reading, Games, Activity sheets, Craft and Singing.
The Club meets after school during term time in St Peter’s Church Hall, Paradise Lane, on Wednesdays from 3.15pm – 4.10pm .

We have recently added new content to our History section of the website detailing the Church Grave records for the Old and New Churchyard.
