Introduction to parish

'A friendly church with a local feel' was how one visitor to St Peter's described it recently. Rebuilt in 1983 our dual purpose premises host a range of community activities during the Week. Brownies, Beavers and Guides are well established and run by church members. Our building and our worship are child-friendly.

As a body of believers we seek to live out our faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord and express in practical ways the good news of God's love for our neighbourhood.

We are actively involved in Churches Together in Lee, including Oasis, a project offering help to asylum seekers and people who are homeless.

Details of Church

Built: 1983
Listing: not listed

The church building has had a literally up and down history! The first St Peter's church was built in 1871 and stood at the junction of Lyme Farm Road and Courtlands Avenue where a cross now marks the site. In 1937 the church was closed or lack of members. After the war the situation changed and demand for a church grew. The old church had suffered bomb damage so it was decided to move to the church hall on the corner of Weigall Road. It was here that a new church was dedicated in 1960. When this developed structural problems it was replaced in 1983 by the present smaller, dual purpose building. At the same time Raglan Court, a block of retirement flats, was built on the site.
