St Peter’s Church and Church Hall Open in May!

Celebrating the Big Help Out and Eurovision!

St Peter’s Church and Church Hall will be open to visitors to celebrate two very special events in May!

On Monday May 8, the Church will be open from 10am to 3pm and the Church Hall will be open from 10.30am to 2.30pm as part of the Coronation Big Help Out! The King has asked people to consider volunteering for their local communities on May 8, and our small team of Heritage volunteers, led by Tom Canty and Donna Jackson, are delighted to do so!

This is a great chance to experience the beauty and peace of St Peter’s, and see the stained glass windows designed by William Morris and Charles Kempe.

Beatles/music fans will also be able to explore the Smith/Lennon family connections in the Church and the Churchyard and pay respects to our Eleanor Rigby and Liverpool legend, Bob Paisley.

You can also visit the Church Hall and stand on the spot where John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met on July 6, 1957, and the Beatles began!

The Hall will also be open on Saturday May 13, from 10am to 2pm, when we will be delighted to welcome musc lovers from around the world who are in Liverpool to celebrate Eurovision!

Entry on both days is free and everyone is welcome!

Church Hall opening over the Anniversary Weekend


St Peter’s Church Hall will be open to visitors on the 60th anniversary of the day that John and Paul met.  Come and stand on the spot where Paul ‘auditioned’ to join the Quarrymen and musical history was made!

The musical legacy of that historic day will be celebrated with live performances from the fabulous Eddie Devlin and Catherine Cook, and some of the current members of the congregation who were at the Church Fete on July 6, 1957, will be on hand to share their memories of that fateful day

There will also be the opportunity to purchase exclusive souvenirs, including t-shirts, key-rings, commemorative posters, badges and postcards, as well as the Hymnals and Prayer Books used during the 1950s.  These items are only available at the Church and cannot be purchased online.

Further details of this and other anniversary events will be announced soon!
