Looking Outwards

St. Peter’s is a church which looks outwards and links with a number of organisations both locally and internationally.

Each month we learn about and pray for one of  a number of international mission agencies. During August we are praying for the work of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East. We have taken an interest in this organisation for some years and recently heard about some fascinating new initiatives supporting needy people in various parts of Iraq. There will be an opportunity to contribute to the work of the Foundation through a retiring collection on each Sunday during August

Our Mission prayers for September will focus on the Dorset Historic Churches Trust. This charity supports hard up parishes all over Dorset in caring for the ancient buildings. On 8 September we shall participate in the annual ‘Ride and Stride’ vent in which we shall cycle or walk to raise funds for the Trust and we shall open the church all day to welcome visitors from other churches who are doing the same thing. See more info in Church about how you can get involved or send us an email

We are of course part of the Church of England Diocese of Salisbury and of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Salisbury Diocese is linked with the Episcopal Church of the Sudan and South Sudan and we have a special link with the South Sudanese Diocese of Wau.

We are part of Churches Together in Dorset; Churches Together in Poole and Churches Together in East Poole. Click here for the latest newsletter from Churches Together in Dorset. Here you can read about ecumenical activity all over the county

Locally our mission as the Church of Christ leads us to get involved with schools, care homes and social care agencies. We regularly visit Nursing and care homes; we support work at Poole Refuge and Robert Gabriel House which cares for young people; we have a Church Junior school and we regularly work with the other schools in the Parish too; we support work with homeless people in Poole and Refugees from Syria, and we are part of the work of the Poole Passion.

Here are some links to a range of other people and organisations we
like to work with:
