Welcome to St Peter's Church Formby Website
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 21st Dec was a busy day at St Peter's. At our morning service the Rev. Chris Quine celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination and in the evening we held our Carols by Candlelight service.
Sunday Club for children. The next dates are:
Children will 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 will be designed for the younger age group.

The Club will meet on Monday afternoons during term time in St Peter's Church Hall, Paradise Lane, from 3.15pm - 4.00pm starting on 9th March 2015.
Praying the Lord's Prayer through Lent
This year the Churches Together Lent Study Series is being led by Revd Ted Woods and held in St Peter's Church Hall, Paradise Lane.
The series is looking at the Lord's Prayer in depth.
The sessions will be repeated each week so there will be a choice of attending in an afternoon or evening. (please see sub-section "Dates for your diary" for details)
We have recently added new content to our History section of the website detailing the Church Grave records for the Old and New Church Yard.
The information has been compiled from the inscriptions on the tombstones and the church records, if you are researching your family history in Formby you might like to check these records.
