Welcome to St Peter’s Parish

We are a Roman Catholic church comprising the original church designed by Pugin which we use on weekdays and the new church where we gather on Sundays. We also have three church halls called the Pugin Rooms which are available for hire. I am the Parish Priest, Canon John Udris, I thank you for visiting our website and hope you find it helpful.
