You’ll Never Walk Alone

During the first lockdown our wonderful organist, Mike, filmed a series of videos called “The Organist Entertains in His Pyjamas!”

Given the recent sad news about Gerry Marsden and the new lockdown measures, it seemed like a good time to share this:

Walk on with hope in your heart and you’ll never walk alone.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone from us all at St Peter’s!

We look forward to welcoming you back to St Peter’s Church and Church Hall in 2021, and we’ll be adding new items to our online shop soon. All details will be posted here, and on our social media in due course.

In the meantime, take care, stay safe, and here’s to a happy, healthy and peaceful new year!

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas to you all from the St Peter’s Heritage Team! We hope that, however you’re spending Christmas, you find some comfort and joy during the holidays. This year may not be what we planned but stay safe and hopefully we can all be together again next year!

We may not be able to be together in Church this year but you might like to light a candle at home and think of this candle burning in Church and know that we’re all together in our hearts.
Happy memories of Christmas 2018
Christmas 2018
Here’s to a happy, peaceful and healthy new year!

Thank you to all the NHS staff, scientists, delivery drivers, teachers and all other key staff who have worked so hard to keep us safe this year, and who are leading the fight against covid. You are all in our thoughts and prayers and here’s to your sucesss, and us all being together again, in 2021! Happy New Year to us all!

Remembering John

Although for us in the UK, the anniversary of John’s death, 40 years ago, will not come until tomorrow, here at St Peter’s we wanted to mark the official anniversary too. This morning, volunteers laid single white roses, representing peace, at some of the places at St Peter’s that were, and are, so important to John.

The roses were laid at the peace memorial, on Uncle George’s grave, on the spot in the choir stalls where John sat and, of course, on the spot in the Church Hall where he met Paul on July 6 1957.

We also united John with another Liverpool legend laid to rest here at St Peter’s.

And we took a rose and laid it at the Strawberry Field gates, uniting St Peter’s with our friends and neighbours around the corner who also were so important in John’s life.

We are so proud, at St Peter’s, to be part of John’s story and privileged to be a custodian of his legacy.

John Lennon 1940-1980

We Will Remember Them

They shall grow not old as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.

When you go home, tell them of us and say, “for your tomorrow, we gave our today.”

We will remember them.

Send Love at Christmas – and Help St Peter’s Too!

With so many restrictions on travel at the moment, more of us might be sending Christmas cards this year to keep in touch with our friends and family and show we care.

If you’re one of those people, how about helping out St Peter’s by slipping one of these little magnets inside your Christmas cards! They’re the size of a standard business card — about 9cm x 5cm and less than 1mm thick — so would fit easily into any Christmas card without adding any cost to the stamp!

We have two different designs available: one is an image of the commemorative plaque on the Church Hall, celebrating the day that John Lennon met Paul McCartney at St Peter’s; the other shows the Church in 1957.

Signed Posters – Only 6 Left!

If you’re thinking of buying one of our VERY limited edition signed posters as a treat for yourself or as a Christmas present for the Beatles – or Quarrymen! – fan in your life, you need to hurry!

We only have SIX left!

These posters, based on the commemorative plaque on St Peter’s Church Hall, were signed by Rod Davis, Len Garry, Colin Hanton and John Duff Lowe when they were all at St Peter’s in 2017 for the 60th anniversary celebrations of the day that John met Paul. We thought we had sold them all but, while he was tidying up in preparation for his retirement, the wonderful Graham Paisley found a pile of posters at the back of a cupboard, including some signed by the four Quarrymen!

We had these available for sale during International Beatle Week during the limited hall openings, and the remainder were made available through the online shop.

There are six remaining and it is extremely unlike that we will ever be able to get any more! So don’t delay!

Email us at beatlesstpeters@gmail.com NOW to place your order and avoid disappointment!

Remember, too, that we currently have an offer of FREE SHIPPING for every order that totals £80 or more ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! Use code JOHN80 when placing your order!
