About St. Peter's

We are an Anglican Church in the Edmonton Episcopal Area of the Diocese of London with a friendly congregation of all ages and backgrounds.

We offer a warm welcome to all.

St Peter's is a stone Victorian building in the Gothic style complete with clock-tower. It was consecrated in 1859 and stands in its own garden enjoyed by both worshippers and local residents.

Enjoy a few more photos of our building.

Our Approach

We are here to live our faith in Jesus Christ through worship, by welcoming all, and by sharing the love of God with the wider community.

St Peter's is an inclusive church, affirming the priesthood of women, and accepts all sincere worshippers, regardless of age, race, or sexual orientation. Our worship is simple and unfussy in style, and Liberal Catholic in practice.

The Sacrament and Holy Oils are reserved, and there is prayer in the church most weekdays.

St Peter's Church Belsize Park is a Grade II listed building, and the tower and clock are part of the original Victorian design.

The Church Council has plans for extensive repairs and improvements to St Peter's fabric and fittings. Alongside a scheme of roof and masonry repairs, the tower clock will be dismantled and given a complete overhaul and refurbishment. The four faces of the clock will be brought back to life and redecorated in sky blue and gold leaf.

The Church Council invites the congregation and local community to support the Clock Appeal, which aims to raise 25,000 so that the clock may be restored to a fully working condition and redecorated this year. The work will be carried out by Smith of Derby, long-established clockmakers.

Cheques (made payable to "St Peter's Church Belsize Park") or cash may be handed to the Treasurer or Churchwardens at St Peter's during these coffee times:

Sundays from 12.30-1.30pm and Thursdays from 11.00am-12.00noon; or delivered by envelope to the Treasurer through the vestry letterbox on the south side of the church.

Gift aid may be added to donations by completing a gift aid envelope.

The aim is that the restored clock will again be an adornment to Belsize Park by November, when we will celebrate the 160th anniversary of the opening of the church.
