We want you to feel welcome, whether you come to worship or pray on your own or merely to experience this historic place. Volunteers are present to greet you, provide you with brochures and answer any questions you may have. St Peter’s is located in the heart of the Town of St George close to the town square and within easy distance of all of the town’s other major attractions, including the Unfinished Church.

Entry by Donation
A $2 donation per person is requested as we believe this beautiful historic building should be available to all. Old places need a lot of expensive upkeep. This $2.00 donation will help us with the costs of maintaining St Peter’s and keeping the church open for future visitors
St Peter’s is famous for the twenty six steps that lead up to the old cedar doors. For those who find stairs difficult, and for wheelchair access, level access into the church is available from Church Lane behind the church. Wheelchairs can access the graveyard, segregated graveyard, church and vestry.
Groups are most welcome to visit our church. We recommend that you let us know when you are coming to avoid any scheduling conflict. A guided tour for your group can be available if requested in advance.
St Peter’s is a very popular destination for groups of school children learning about their island’s history. We are delighted to offer a short presentation on St Peter’s which also reflects aspects of Bermuda’s history if requested in advance. For children of primary school age, a Discover St Peter’s sheet is available which is a fun introduction to some aspects of the church and churchyard. Students should be supervised by an adult or, in the case of large groups, several adults. Please call the Parish Office on (441) 297 2459 or email email@example.com.
