This May, we will start celebrating a rather spectacular birthday, with St Peter's entering its 1350th year as a place of Christian worship. There will be many events over the next 12 months, so keep your eyes peeled for more information.
This page on the website will act as a blog of sorts. We will be posting video interviews on the topics of worship and mission. Two fundamental aspects of St Peter's early life as a monastery and its current life as a parish Church. We will also post write-ups of our events and hopefully post a few pictures along the way!
Come be a part of the milestone birthday year with us.

I sit down with Br Jude and talk about the heart of worship. Check out this really great video where Br Jude very wisely talks us through what he sees worship as being.
The Children stole the show!
On Thursday the 25th of May 2023 we kicked off our 1350 celebrations in style! Joined by Broadmoor Baptist's Highschool Choir, Fulwell Junior's Choir and Br Jude from the Community of the Resurrection.
It was truly wonderful to gather together in St Peter's and celebrate a shared Christian history with all those who came from other denominations. Bede is important to all of us and we at St Peter's are blessed to be the guardians of Bede's first monastic home.
The service was a real mix of worshiping styles and traditions and showed that old and new can work well together!
Broadmoor's High School Choir met with Fulwell Juniors this afternoon to introduce themselves.
Broadmoor teach Fulwell Juniors how to sing one of their songs.
Today (Monday 22nd May), Broadmoor Baptist's Youth Choir have arrived in Sunderland! The 16 out of the whole 60 who are on placement with us during the week came to St Andrew's this evening to get to know the parish and to pray together.
We're very excited to see what God will do through them while they are here in the parish and looking forward to getting to know them better.
Broadmoor are an American Baptist Church and have a heart to see Jesus known. We're excited to be able to partner with them and other Churches around the city to see Jesus known in our communities.
The first in our 1350 video series!
