St Peter's is a church family, worshipping God and growing together in faith and love.
The congregation and preaching team consist women and men representing an eclectic mix of church traditions, ages and ethnicities.
We have a good musical set-up, with organ, choir and orchestra.
Children are an active part of the worshipping life and are very welcome at St Peter's.
As a church we try to serve our wider community, not least through the provision of our community centre, Peterhouse.
We sometimes hold our worship times outside in the forest.
We invite you to come and find a warm welcome at St Peter's-in-the-Forest.
St Peter's church building is in a lovely, early-Victorian Italianate-style, and is set in a slither of Epping Forest but otherwise in the heart of Walthamstow, London E17. It was awarded a Grade II listing in April 2009.
damage to the building in the 1970s led to extensive re-ordering and the inside is now a
very light and open space with some delightful works of art from 1840 to
the present day.
Further, significant conservation, repair and adaptation of the building will take place during 2019 and 2020, as part of a major project - 'St Peter's: A Unique Forest Church' - which has attracted substantial grant and partnership funding.
