Community Links

As a city centre church we value links with a variety of community groups and organisations.  Our philosophy is to make and maintain links and to offer and provide help and assistance where we are able to, and where it is needed. 

Our principal focus is the parish of St Peter’s, but often local community groups and organisations operate across parish boundaries and so we are make links and help where we are able. We aim to liaise with other parish churches in St Albans where several parishes might be involved.

St Peter’s Community Links contact is Sue Parker (

Recent ways in which St Peter’s has linked to local community groups and organisations

We raise funds through various means, and through our Mission and Unity Committee we annually donate funds, to help support a number of organisations.

Lunch-time concerts

As part of its active musical programme, St Peter’s puts on a full programme of Wednesday lunch-time concerts throughout the year.  These concerts organised by Roy (Tony) Edwards, are free and the retiring collections are also in aid of Grove House Hospice.

Providing weekly Baby Time and Toddler Time groups

These groups aim to provide a relaxed and easy going atmosphere for local mothers, and present plenty of opportunities for children to play and express themselves. Mandy Carhart who runs the groups may be contacted at, can be contacted by anyone interested in coming along.

Making facilities available

By arrangement, St Peter’s is able to make a number of its facilities available to local community groups and organisations.  These include the Octagon which is adjacent and linked to the church, and the Church Hall located in Hatfield Road.  Among the organisations which take advantage of these facilities are a yoga club, a circle dancing group and an NHS Trust.  Ruth Garman in the church office ( can be contacted to make enquiries.
