Where we meet

We meet as a church family at St Peter’s Church, Ashley Road, Hale on Sundays at 8:30am, 10:00am and 6:30pm. We also have lots of activities and groups throughout the week for all ages! Click here for more info.

How to find us

We have accessible parking on site and there is a large inexpensive car park not far away. St Peter’s is also within walking distance of local bus stops and Hale station. Click here for more information. If you need help getting to church please call us.

What to wear

Wear whatever you like. Some people will dress casually and others will go for a smarter look but we have no dress code, you’re welcome as you are!

Who can come

Everyone. You are welcome at any of our services. Each has a slightly different style, click here to find out more and see which of our services you think would suit you best. The 10:00am service is probably best if you’d like to bring the whole family.

Generous support from members of our congregation and community allows us to keep serving the community. We love being a hub where everyone can come. From baptisms, weddings and funerals, to weekly services or children’s parties, we open our doors to people from across the community.

A NEW PATTERN OF WORSHIP

“I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures. Don’t you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the desert.”Isaiah 43.19, The Passion Translation 

The PCC and Standing Committee recently agreed a new pattern of worship for our church community, to come alongside our regular pattern of worship. These new services will be held monthly on Sunday afternoons at 4.30pm, either in church or in the Veranda Room at St Peter’s House.  On the second Sunday of the  month, join us for Cafe Church. This relaxed service over refreshments in St Peter’s House involves a discussion rather than a traditional sermon.

We are also hoping to introduce a contemporary worship service, with acoustic/band style worship. Like anything new, it takes time to take shape and to grow, so please do join us if you can, and please do pray with us as we seek God in all things.

Please also note the new time of 4.30pm for our evening services (whether that is Choral Evensong, Alternative, or Taizé).

SALFORD VAN COLLECTIONS

The next collection date is Sunday 13th February. Please ensure all donations are left outside the door at the back of the Assembly Rooms before 1pm on the day of the collection. Salford is accepting clean bedding, warm clothing, and small household items in good condition. Please keep donations in bags to protect against weather.

LITTLE FISH: NEW BABY, TODDLER AND PARENT GROUP STARTS

MESSY CHURCH

Messy Church is a fresh way of ‘doing church’ through crafts, stories, songs and fun challenges. With the increase of Covid cases, we are going back to online via YouTube. There’s something for the family to do together, and it promises to make Bible stories and teachings more memorable in an interactive way. For the YouTube link or if you would like to find out more, please email our Children & Youth Minister Melissa (melissa@stpetershale.org.uk).

DONATIONS FOR THE TREE OF LIFECENTRE, WYTHENSHAW

We are now collecting clothing for the Tree of Life Centre in Wythenshawe. Please place your donations of clean clothing in the labelled boxes at the back of church. Don’t worry, you can still donate to our various other charities.

The Tree of Life Centre increases the quality of life for low or no-income families and is a lifeline for many in desperate need of clothing, dignity and a sense of belonging.

They are in need of all types of clothing, from casusal to formalwear, partywear to school uniforms in any (clean) condition.

COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

In accordance with Government guidance and the increase of the Omicron variant, we ask all who attend our services to wear masks or visors, unless exempt. Please also Test and Trace as you enter the building. You can do this by scanning the QR code at the back of church, or by signing in by hand.  Our services are also live on Facebook at  www.facebook.com/stpetershale. You don’t have to sign up to Facebook in order to join in.
