St. Peter's Church, Belsize Park, London. Church of England


We are an Anglican Church in the Edmonton Episcopal Area of the Diocese of London.

St Peter's is an attractive Victorian building in the Gothic style with a clock–tower. It was consecrated in 1859, and stands in its own garden, which is enjoyed by many residents and –by.

It offers a warm welcome to many visitors in the course of the year, with several hotels nearby, and has a friendly congregation of all ages and backgrounds.

Our building is also used for Christian worship by St. Gabriel's Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
