Things you should know about St Peter's
The church is open daily from 10pm to 4pm, and visitors can enjoy quiet reflection, or view the many historic features including a display of Celtic Crosses and interesting stained glass windows. The present building was consecrated in 1833. The previous church built on the site was St Catherine's, famous because it witnessed the marriage of William Bligh on 2 Feb 1789, later to Captain 'HMS Bounty' on which the infamous mutiny took place. The church sits in a large graveyard which serves the whole Parish of Onchan.
St Peter's offers a range of services, often with a robed choir, and has a large and very active congregation. There is an active Sunday School, Laser group for older youngsters, and Peter Bear Club for preschoolers. There are five home groups, an active Mothers Union, and Ladies Fellowship. An informal 'Messy Church' is held periodically in the nearby Parish Hall. Opposite the church is the Rectory, with the Parish Office at the back.
