The Alpha Course
Questions about Faith, Life & God


Starting October 3rd!

With over 16.5 million people having been on an Alpha Course in 169 countries, the Alpha Course is a global phenomenon.

We are excitingly starting an 8 week Alpha course! Alpha is designed for people with questions about the meaning of life and the Christian faith, as well as new Christians and anyone wanting to revisit the foundations of their faith.

Evenings are relaxed and start with a meal, followed by a short talk.  The course consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as ‘Who is Jesus?’ and ‘Why and how do I pray?’ After each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion.

Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile, and it is supported by all the main Christian denominations. There is no charge for the Alpha Course, although you may be asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of food.

Contact the church office on parishadmin@chesterstpeter.org.uk or 01244 403634 for the latest information on upcoming Alpha courses.

St Peter's is an evangelical Anglican church sharing God's love at the heart of Chester city. We enjoy many different worship styles throughout the week, from our weekly worship services on a Sunday morning and Tuesday lunchtime, to 3rd Space wellbeing workshops, to the Isabella Theatre workshops, to Night Church's fortnightly sacred space, to enjoying fellowship at our 6 day a week cafe - phew! Although we do a lot in the week, at the heart of all we do, is the desire to give space for people to connect with Jesus.

The isabella theatre community

The Isabella Theatre Community, based in Chester, is an innovative arts based theatre movement. They exist to create excellent theatre, enable people to grow in confidence and develop communication skills.

Our vision is to create a community where people can experience a theatre-shaped church regardless of their faith.


Our Sunday evening gathering is an informal and spacious time of worship, Bible input, and prayer.

Have you ever wanted space in worship to engage more deeply with the Holy Spirit? Have you ever wanted to explore the gifts of the Spirit, and make sense of them for yourself? Has God placed a desire within you to grow in your experience of the Holy Spirit in your life? Do you just want some help making sense of all of this talk of the Holy Spirit in a safe and generous environment?

First Sunday of the Month 6:30 - 8:00 PM Come along to find out more.


WELLBART is actively building community in the heart of Chester city centre.
We do this through offering a listening ear to visitors of the cafe and through building relationships. We provide therapeutic activities and wellbeing workshops to engage inclusively with those who are unoccupied during daytime hours forming a twice weekly touchpoint which is both consistent and supportive. 

For more information email: 3rdspace@chesterstpeter.org.uk
Open every Friday 1pm - 5.30pm, And every Wednesday 11am – 3pm


café at the cross

A warm welcome awaits you at St Peter’s Café which is run by volunteers on a daily basis. We serve a selection of soup, sandwiches, cakes and snacks.
Open, Monday – Saturday 10.30am to 4.00pm.

Every Tuesday at 1pm, St Peter’s holds an informal act of worship of singing, bible reading, a short talk and prayer! Please do come along if you are around - it is only 20 minutes and our numbers are growing every week!



Our morning gatherings create space to hear from the Holy Spirit. We have fellowship and prayer with one another and with prayer and thanksgiving give glory to God. 

We have breakfast with one another before our service, so we would encourage you to get there slightly earlier so you don't miss out on the wonderful food and gathering of family. 
Our morning services run from 10:30am - 12:00am.
