Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals
St Peter’s regularly hosts baptisms, weddings and funerals. Our baptisms are an important time to welcome our newest members to our church family, whether they are linked to our church or not. Our church provides a lovely intimate setting for a wedding and can normally accommodate about 100 guests. Please contact Andrew Taylor-Cook (above) in the first instance.
Getting to St Peter’s
You can find St Peter’s on the Eastgate, Peebles EH45 8AD. We’re right next to Peebles Post Office and the main Peebles bus stop.
Buses from Edinburgh and the Borders stop directly outside St Peter’s Church, including the X62 service. For details on services visit the Borders Bus website.
If you are travelling by car, you approach Peebles on the A72 from Biggar or Galashiels, or the A703 from Edinburgh. There is a large car park (Eastgate) situated within a five minute walk of St Peter’s Church, which can be accessed from the Edinburgh Road (A703). Parking is free except on Saturdays, please do walk down to the pedestrian crossing near Veitch’s / Costa as traffic can be busy. As there is a bus stop and taxi rank in front of the church, it is not possible to drop people directly at the church.
We have a ramp outside the church for wheelchair users. The nave is accessible by wheelchair but the sanctuary is up some steps. However, Communion can be brought to your seat. A loop system is in use at all our main services with subtle amplification for all. We have large print copies of the Liturgy and song books – please do ask.
There is a toilet accessible via the Vestry door during services. Unfortunately this is not wheelchair accessible, and is up two steps, then through a narrow door.
