St Peter / Balsall Common

Weekly Events


  • Our main Sunday service

    9:30AM Every Sunday

    Our main service celebrates Communion in contemporary language ('Common Worship'), and starts at 9.30. There are always activities for children. Following demand, we now run TWO 'Main Services' (at 9:30 AND at 11:00) ! (THIS ALSO HELPS TO KEEP YOU Covid-safe).

    On the Third Sunday of each month we follow a modern, informal style of worship (our "Switch" service), often in the Hall where there is more room to experiment and run around. Then there is a simple service of Communion with hymns at 11:00 …..

    On the Fifth Sunday of the month we usually have 'Café Style' Communion, starting with coffee and pastries, and sharing bread and wine around small tables (not during Covid!)

  • SWitCH

    9:30AM On the 'Third Sunday' of every month

    An informal relaxed service for all ages, usually held in the Hall (but in the church and online during the lockdown!). Once a month, at 9:30 on the 'Third Sunday', we set out the chairs and beanbags in the Hall so there's plenty of room for the kids to run around if they need to!

    Lots of activities for all ages (quiet reflection and teaching for those who want, as well as arts and crafts and 'stuff'!)

  • Coffee for All

    10:30AM Every Sunday

    Between the regular 9:30 service and the 11:00 service, we serve coffee (Fairtrade, naturally, or tea, squash and biscuits or sometimes cake) “for all” so that our congregation(s) can relax, meet each other, and chat.

  • Lighthouse

    11:00AM Second Sunday of each month

    An all age interactive worship service with ‘live music’ which used to happen in the afternoons, but is now an 11:00 morning service! See our Facebook page for what’s happening this month.

  • 11 o'clock Communion

    11:00AM Monthly, 3rd Sunday of each month

    On the Third Sunday of each month there is a later short service of communion, with music, using the Common Worship format - but some months this does not happen: check the News page! 

  • Navigate

    11:00AM Every First Sunday of the month

    Our new informal all-age worship service - modern worship songs and a relaxed atmosphere. Now happening online as well as in church during the Lockdown - but we look forward to you coming for coffee in the Hall from 10:30 before the Navigate service. 

  • Evening Service

    6:00PM First Sunday of every month

    Sung Evensong, with choir! Using the Book of Common Prayer.


  • Midweek Morning Communion

    10:30AM Weekly

    A short said service - a friendly mid-week devotional and social top-up. This now starts at 10:30 rather than 9:30 as this seems to make it easier to come and join in. During the COVID period, we were meeting online for a short service of prayer and then a chat with friends ... using Zoom! We are now pleased to say we have restarted our live ‘in-person’ midweek services, in church, every Wednesday at 10:30am.


  • Tea and Cake at St Peter's

    2:30PM On the Second Thursday of every month

    An opportunity to come together and chat over tea and home made cakes in our welcoming lounge in the church. Alternate months there is a short service in addition, on the Fourth Thursday.

  • Choir practice

    7:30PM Weekly

    Junior choir meets every Thursday from 6.30, and Senior choir at 7.30 - new members always welcome, tuition provided! (meet in church, access via Vestry door in the carpark)

    Contact Kim Rawson, Musical Director and Choirmaster, for details, or just turn up.


  • Teeny Tinies & Toddlers

    1:30PM Weekly during termtime

    Our Bumps and Babies Café (with 'Stay and Play') has been re-named and relaunched as 'Teeny Tinies & Toddlers'. They meet on Friday Afternoons during school term time for mums, dads and grandparents caring for babies, and expectant mums too! Come and enjoy a cup of tea/coffee, homemade cake, and chat whilst the babies play. There is also activity for older children - lots of room in the Church Hall for them to run around safely too! If you have kids in both age groups - that's why we have moved them together in the Hall at the same time! (Home made cakes are *Back*!) (but, sorry, no school age kids! “Health and Safety”….).
