Good Friday and Easter Day
We are planning a live service for Good Friday and Easter Day, we hope you will be able, to continue the walk through Good Friday and on to Easter Day.
Good Friday will take the form of a series of reflections at the Cross – using a number of crosses in the churchyard. It will start at 2:00, for quiet reflection, before the actual service begins at 2:15. The Good Friday Zoom link is here.
Easter Day will, more or less, be Choral Evensong, starting at 6:30, and the Easter Evensong link is here.

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 .
