Annual Review 2023

Our parish Annual Meeting (APCM) is this coming Sunday 19th May at 4pm in St. Peter’s church. Click on the image below left to download the Annual Report of all that happened last year.

Morning Sermon series

Our new morning Sermon Series started after Easter, running from  7 Apr to 2 June 2024. It’s called “The Mission of My Church” and follows on from our previous series where we looked at all that Jesus began to do and teach (in the gospel of Luke).

We now turn to the book of Acts which reveals that Jesus wasn’t finished doing and teaching even after His crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. The message is, “We can’t separate what Jesus has done for his Church from what he wants to do through his Church.”

We have learnt that Jesus’ Church is Jesus’ family on Jesus’ mission. Being a part of Jesus’ family requires participating in Jesus’ mission. We can’t be a part of Jesus’ family and ignore His mission.

The 10.30am service from St. Peter’s will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel.

OASIS is our midweek service – a time of fellowship and friendship at St Peter’s!
Refreshments are served in the church lounge from 10.30am and at 11.30am there is  a 30 minute service in church for those who would like to attend.
Do come and join us – everyone is very welcome for part or all of the time.

Evening Service sermon series

Our parish-wide evening services at St. Peter’s Church continue the theme of Common Ground which we started at the beginning of this year.

The aim of the Common Ground series is to get back to basics on what we believe and it will take us through some of the common ground of our basic doctrinal beliefs of Christianity.

The reading and talk from our evening services listen are available to watch on our YouTube channel.

Parish Centre

St. Peter’s parish church is an impressive Grade II listed building at the heart of the parish. In the 1980’s an extension provided a lounge, kitchen and toilets and work is currently underway to provide a welcoming entrance area.

Barrow Bridge Mission is situated in an important conservation area on the edge of Bolton. The attractive community is a former model community mill village and comprises former mill owner and worker cottages.

Smithills Fellowship meets in St. Peter’s Smithills Dean CE Primary School and Smithills Hall Chapel.  The Chapel forms part of Smithills Hall and is leased from the council.

St. Andrew’s meets in the Hope Centre, which serves the Johnson Fold estate. The centre has been completely refurbished in the last 15 years, to better serve the needs of the surrounding community.

St. Peter’s Parish Centre is a hive of activity most days with church groups and other bookings.
It is also home to the administrative hub of the parish. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am-3pm.
