St Peter's Church Nottingham City Centre


St Peter’s Church is one of the three mediaeval churches in Nottingham, the others being St Mary's and St Nicholas'. It is thought to be the oldest building in the city to be in continuous public use. The present building shows traces of many stages of construction from about 1180 onwards (the original church of around 1100 was destroyed by fire), up to the present day.

St Peter's stands in the very centre of the city, near the Old Market Square and the Council House, and is surrounded by busy shopping streets, offices and other commercial activity. It is seen as an oasis amidst the city bustle and a refuge from the pressures of the world. During your visit, look out for the magnificent carved rood screen, the striking modern reredos behind the altar, and the Workers' Memorial Window (dedicated to all those who have lost their lives at work).

There is a small but pleasant churchyard between the church and the St Peter's Centre, which houses a coffee shop where lunches and snacks are served. There is also an excellent shop selling fairly traded goods and a selection of books. The church sees itself as serving all the people of the city, especially the disadvantaged and disaffected, and has a strong musical tradition which includes a choir which is well known nationally and internationally.

Church opening times are 10am-4pm Monday-Friday, and 10am-3.30pm on Saturdays

The church is also open for Sunday services at 8.15 am, 10.45 am and 5.00 pm

Mid week services: Meditation on Monday at 1.15pm; Holy Communion on Tuesday at 1.15pm; Holy Communion on Thursday at 11am.
