St Peter's Walsall



Not many people realise that ten years ago St Peter’s was marked for closure – but on Sunday 15 January we gathered to celebrate the re-opening of our church building following some long-awaited and much-needed alterations, carried out as part of the revitalisation of the church, a process which has been going on for some years now.

Listen to Bishop Clive Gregory's 2½ minute summary of our church's transformation here,
watch the video above to see how the refurbishment unfolded,
– and just come along to see for yourself what's going on!

You can also visit St Peter's Walsall YouTube Channel for encouragement and hope from earlier online services and resources.


There are lots of ways to be part of the community here at St Peter's Wasall, and you're invited to join in.

Check out our St Peter's Walsall YouTube channel: you can watch our regular services, and find lots of other helpful stuff. We gather online at our usual service times of Sunday 10.30am, and Wednesday 11am and 7.30pm – but you can watch whenever you want.

For younger ones, Breakthrough starts at 10.30 in the Hall (we'll help you find it if you don't know where it is!), and we all join together in church for worship and communion at 11.30. is also running online: see the Eden Walsall Facebook Page and the Eden Walsall YouTube Channel.-->

The church is active on Facebook too: St Peter's Church Walsall.

If you'd like regular updates about what's happening and how to be involved, please send your name, home address and email address to and we'll add you to the email list. Thank you!

We're an inner-city church seeking to bring Hope & Transformation through the good news about Jesus to the Community, College & Centre of Walsall, West Midlands.

Eden Walsall

Eden Walsall

We're so plesed that for six years we got to partner with Eden – a grass-roots community movement which serves people, and young people in particular, in tough areas. We hope to re-launch our community activity in due course; for now, have a look at these articles from the Message for a flavour of what we enjoyed with Gav and Jem…

We're always looking for people who choose to live and work here – so if you want to worship God, make friends and change the world, then come to Walsall and join us!

The Alpha Course


We love Alpha! Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. Typically Alpha has around ten sessions and includes food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts.

Please keep checking back here for news of our next course. If you'd like to come, or if you have any questions about it, send us an email, or give us a ring on 01922 640955.

Welcome! St Peter's first opened its doors in 1841, and re-launched at Christmas 2013 – so once again we're praying and working as St Peter's becomes a vibrant, welcoming church, worshipping God and loving the people of our community. Please find out more, and get involved - we'd love to be in touch with you.

Sunday 10.30am

This is an informal service with lively worship music and practical Bible teaching, usually with Holy Communion. There's also
a range of children's activities. It lasts about 1½ hours, followed by something to drink and a chance to chat.

Wednesday 11am

Wednesday Worship Services
are a bit more traditional – so if you like hymns and some quiet reflection in the company of good friends this one's for you. It lasts about 1 hour. Refreshments are available after every service, sometimes with a shared lunch, and we also pay monthly visits to the residents of the Arboretum Nursing Home and Harden Hall.

We're here to help, so please get in touch and say hello via email to

Reading the Bible every day as a way to know and love God personally is so important – that's why we encourage everyone to make the most of resources like Bible in One Year which gives practical, helpful and encouraging support, including readings, notes and online audio. You can download the app, subscribe with email, or just go to the BIOY web site.

Another great framework for lots of daily Bible reading and scripture memorization is the Church of England's Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer. Find out more at the Daily Prayer web site, or download the Daily Prayer app for Apple iOS or Android


We're learning to take hold of everything Jesus has done for us in our daily lives through the extended prayer John Eldredge created (See Prayers We Pray), and we've worked through what it means and how it all helps. The prayer itself and the weekly notes from our talks are provided here for personal and community group reflection.
