Jeopardy Fame for St Peter’s!

If you’re in the US and like watching Jeopardy you might have enjoyed yesterday’s Final Jeopardy question. The category was “Music Legends”:


And this was the ‘answer’ (for anyone who’s never seen the show, the contestants are given the answer and they have to come up with the right question):

Debbie Leaf, a good friend of St Peter’s, was watching and we’re very grateful to her for sending us the screenshots. She told us that all three contestants gave the same answer — Simon and Garfunkel!

We’re not going to give away the right ‘question’ but you should be able to work it out!

Jeopardy has been running in the US since 1964 and is still one of the most popular American game shows. It’s won 39 Emmys, among other awards. No wonder we’re so proud and honoured to have featured yesterday!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from everyone at St Peter’s to all our friends around the world! We hope that the new year brings you health and happiness and that we’ll be able to welcome you to St Peter’s again. But whatever 2022 brings, remember that you’ll never walk alone.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all our friends around the world from everyone at St Peter’s Church. We hope you have a peaceful and happy holiday season, and we look forward to welcoming you all to the birthplace of the Beatles next year as we celebrate the 65th anniversary of the day that John met Paul in St Peter’s Church Hall!

We Will Remember Them

Along with the nation, we paused at St Peter’s Church today to remember all those who have served, all those who lost their lives as a result of their service, and their family and friends.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.
