Church in the World

Church in the world into

As Christians, we seek to build the Kingdom of God and to live out our faith in action, working for greater social justice throughout the world. The major way in which we do this is through the daily lives of all who are part of our church community, in our work, our participation in the life of the wider community, in charities, politics and among our neighbours.

As a Church, we also strive to respond to needs around us, to be thinking, committed and environmentally responsible. We support local, national and international causes, and we seek to develop strong relationships with the groups we support. We select charities which we can support each year through our giving, our special collections at Christmas and other times, and through our May Fair.

ALMA and other charities

Services, concerts and events at St Peter’s raise money and support for many charities throughout the year. Locally, we have supported the work of the Zacchaeus 2000 Trust, a small charity which works to combat poverty in London; The Passage in its work with local homeless; the Westminster Foodbank; and Veterans Aid, a local based charity for veterans in crisis. In recent years we have developed an acclaimed programme for volunteers working with refugees and asylum seekers in London through the Welcome Boxes programme. Alcoholics Anonymous also hold daily meetings at St Peter’s.

Internationally, we have provided finance for the building of a school in Angola, through the Diocese of London’s link with Angola and Mozambique; supported Kids for Kids work in Darfur; and the work of Amnesty International. The Amnesty International Group for Westminster and Bayswater meets at St Peter’s every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the Committee Room and can be contacted through their Secretary, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Saakshar and greener church

The charities we are supporting in 2021 are The Passage and the Xavier Project.

We are a 'Greener' church, seeking to reduce our impact on the environment as well as sharing awareness of green issues.

We have also won Fair Trade Church status by committing ourselves to using only fairly traded coffee, tea and other goods.

We encourage debate on all these issues. We are particularly keen to involve young people in this process, and we are always open to new ideas of how to engage more participants.


Revd Julie visits St Peter’s C of E Primary School several times each week and take weekly services and early years assemblies. Often the children come to the church for services and assemblies too. We value our link with our happy and successful school very much and work closely with the Head, the staff and the Governors. Many members of our congregation are also parents at the school, and members of the congregation serve as governors.

The clergy of St Peter's also regularly visit and take assemblies at Westminster City Boys School, and at other schools including Grey Coat Hospital. Our work with children and young people is at the heart of our commitment to the wider community.
