St Peters, open every day for visits, prayers and services, is one of the oldest Catholic Churches in London. The church buildings were designed by the famous promoter of the Victorian Gothic Revival Awin Pugi,  shortly before he began work on the interior of the decoration of the House of Commons. St Peters has recently been awarded a grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund for urgent repairs and a range of initiatives to make the history and heritage of St Peters more accessible and better appreciated by parishioners, locals and visitors to the area, of all faiths & none


The parish of St Peter's is responsible, as part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Southwark, for worship and mission in Woolwich. With an average of 1284 attending Sunday Masses the church is used for daily Masses, other sacraments and services of worship. Monthly services for the sick and the deceased attract 400-500 Catholics mainly from outside the parish. The adjacent Parish Centre is used for parish catechetical sessions and social and business meetings, a weekly Food Bank, councillor surgeries and ward meetings, polling stations for elections, deanery and diocesan meetings, local voluntary organisations' money-raising events and meetings, and weekly hire to Slimming World
