Welcome to our church


The Festive Fayre was a great success with over 90 volunteers under the leadership of Roger Waddell, who worked tirelessly in the weeks leading up to the day itself.  There was a great community spirit and, in spite of the weather, lots of visitors  and a wonderful atmosphere in the halls. The sum of £3,000 was raised-so a BIG ‘Thank You’ to everyone.

More photos of the fayre can be seen here! 

Our next Fundraising Events: Indoor Boot Fair on Saturday 26th January 2019 then a ‘Tea and Beetle Drive’  on Thursday 7th February.


December 19th 2018 was a momentous day in the history of St. Peter’s Church because on that day the Rev’d Jan, who had until then been our Priest in Charge, went with her two Churchwardens,  Pauline and Sylvia, to the Bishop’s Palace at Canterbury Cathedral where  Bishop Trevor presided at a short ceremony at which she was made our Vicar.

Thank you for your interest in this beautiful Anglican, inclusive Church situated at the heart of St Peter-in-Thanet, Broadstairs. We are one of three Church of England Parishes in Broadstairs – which is in Thanet in North-East Kent. Together with other local Churches we try to share something of God’s love for all.

There has been a worshipping Church situated on our site for over 1,000 years. We are privileged to continue this tradition and aspire to live as followers of Jesus in a rapidly changing world with faith and joy.

We hope that you enjoy looking through what we try to do at St Peter’s Church. Please click on any of the links above. Perhaps even more importantly – we hope to have the opportunity to meet you in person.
