Welcome to St Peter's
Corona Virus Restrictions
From 4 January we are once again in a world where attendance at religious gatherings or services is - let's be classical about it, contra leges iussorum - banned by our Scottish parliament. Instead, we will move to a range of wholly zoomed services, organised jointly with our sister church of St Columba in Bathgate.
For those without a computer, or lacking reasonable web access, it is possible to access zoomed services by telephone – but be sure you use a UK telephone link and not an American one! If you need advice on this, feel free to contact the webmaster.
These arrangements, are of course to reduce the risk of infection and support the national effort to combat the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.
More detailed information is available from our page.
That introduction behind us, welcome to our web site; and welcome in due course - but reasonably soon, we hope - to our full range of services and to membership of our community, whether you are here as a resident of Linlithgow or whether you come as a visitor. On Sunday mornings our zoomed Eucharist is at 10:00 (as opposed to our usual 09:30).
St Peter's is part of the world-wide Anglican Church - part of a very distinct Scottish tradition, but in full communion with the Church of England.
Our church is open to all - we welcome everyone, both for worship and for our various social events. We take a liberal stance on all issues and try never to turn anybody away.
In our congregation, we are all concerned with the spiritual well-being of our community and care for each other in a very tangible manner. We try to respond lovingly to the needs and concerns of all people. We cater for all ages - with a creche when appropriate, an active Sunday School and a small Youth Group. We enjoy each other's company and together face the challenges and the joys of modern life.
There may be times when you feel the need to talk to someone, or maybe you want your child baptised, or are simply curious about Christianity, and want to explore it in a place where you do not feel pressurised. If so, come and join us on any Sunday at 09:30 or on a Tuesday at 10:30, or for the even quieter morning prayer on Thursdays at 09:00. For the time being, check these service details with our current page. Or you can always contact us by phone or email - see our contact page
