St Peter’s Church is an important place of faith in the Highfields area of Leicester. It is the centre of the Church of England presence and worship in the community, particularly for the African Caribbean community, and from the basis of this faith, we welcome and offer hospitality to those of other faiths and none, to other cultures, indeed to the whole Highfields community.

We have a huge challenge ahead of us over the next few years as we seek to repair and renew our beautiful Victorian building and develop new facilities as we continue to demonstrate our faith through worship, hospitality, and service. Building work is underway and you can follow progress here and on our Twitter feed.

The church community gathers together on Sundays at 11.00am and Tuesdays at 9.30am, and at other times to pray and celebrate. You can see the church calendar here.

As a community, we offer an open place of welcome on Tuesdays, from 10.00 until 11.00 and Wednesdays and Fridays, from 12 noon to 1.15pm. You are welcome to call in, to look at the church, meet some people for chat, seek some local knowledge and enjoy a free drink. On Wednesdays and Fridays, we also cook a hot meal*. Our community halls are available to hire for private parties and for community events. We also host a wide range of activities including other churches and faith groups. <Community Centre>

You can find us at 2 St Peter’s Road, Leicester, LE2 1DA.
There is generally somebody available from 10.00 until 1pm each weekday, and Sundays from about 10.30.

The church is open Tuesday mornings, Wednesday and Friday lunch times and Sunday mornings. To check full details, please check the calendar, or give us a call.
