Welcome to our website.
St. Peter’s Church of Ireland (Anglican/Episcopalian) Church is in the middle of Drogheda opposite Marks and Spencer’s. Christians have worshipped on this historic site for over 800 years and there are the remains of buildings in our church grounds possibly dating as far back as the thirteenth century. We are a friendly church and all sorts of people worship here. Our worship is fairly traditional Anglican worship with traditional prayers and hymns. Although some people criticise traditional worship we think that one of the important things about traditional worship is that it points to the unchanging nature of God, for as the hymn-writer says, quoting St Paul “a thousand ages in thy sight are as an evening gone.”
St Peter’s is part of a parish union of seven churches. There is now a new website for the parishes of the Union – Ardee (Ardee and COllon churches) and Kilsaran (Castlebellingham, Dunleer, Dunany and Drumcar churches).
There is also a section dealing with genealogy – the registers of St. Peter’s go back to the year 1653, shortly after Oliver Cromwell’s visit to our town.
After a terrible arson attack on the church in 1999 there was a huge restoration project which gave us new buildings and new opportunities for service to the community. We seek to be at the heart of Drogheda and friends to all.
