Geographical remit: 


St Peter's Church was designed by Sir John Soane and first opened its doors to the parish community here in Walworth in 1825 when Walworth was one of the poorest parts of London as it still is in some ways today. Ever since it has been here for the whole community, serving a small area of south London with 10,000 people living in it. St Peter's is a deeply inclusive church, which is still here for anyone who comes through the doors, whether they are worshippers, visitors, or people who are in practical or spiritual need. St Peter's offers worship, friendship, refreshments, an informal foodbank, solidarity, pastoral care, and whatever we can in response to whatever is needed.


St Peter's Church aims to be as responsive and flexible as possible when meeting the needs of our local community. We provide Sunday worship which we try to make as accessible as possible, with a welcoming and inclusive approach. We respond to individual needs by providing advocacy, simple help with tasks, home-visiting, an informal food-back, 'mercy money' by topping up pre-payment utility cards etc, and much more. We're a community-focussed parish church family.
