All the activities of the church are funded by the giving of its members.  

Neither the Church of England, nor the government provide financial support. In fact we subsidise the Church of England by paying what is called our "Parish Share".

We do not ask visitors for money.  However, we are not afraid to point out that the level of activity we are able to undertake depends entirely on the financial and practical gifts we receive from our members.

Why give?

The Bible sets out some principles on giving which all of us should follow as we manage our own finances and time.  Giving regularly and proportionately to "the Lord's work" is something we should all do.

The easiest way to give regularly

In answer to a question asked at a PCC meeting, the easiest way to give regularly to St Peter’s is to set up a standing order with your bank, through your internet banking app or online. Make the payment to:

Parochial Church Council St Peters Loudwater
A/c number: 70701513
Sort code: 20-40-71
Barclays Bank, Maidenhead Branch

Add your name as a reference and e-mail Ray Douglas (, or Heather Flood ( so that they can check that the money is received.  If you want to split your giving between the general fund and specific missionaries, let Ray or Heather know in the email.
Finally, if you pay income tax, you can gift aid your donations so that HMRC will add 25% to the value of your gift each month - there's a form you can download below. Please return any completed forms to

Planning your Visit

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, and whatever your life looks like right now, we’d love to welcome you to St Peter’s. Everyone’s invited; just come. We meet for our Sunday service at 10am, here’s what to expect when you come:

Most of us hesitate before walking into a place full of strangers, but don't panic – you will be welcome and there's no need to take part in anything you’re not comfortable with. We all come as we are, so there's no need to dress up - wear something that makes you feel comfortable. 

Where and When

We meet in the main Church building on the corner of Treadaway Hill and Kingsmead Road at 10am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team, if you're unsure where to sit then our team will help you to a seat.

We serve tea and coffee from 9:45am in the small hall opposite the Church, before the service begins. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Plan your journey: 
Our car park is quite small and on Sundays it's reserved for those who have mobility difficulties.
Additional parking is available on the Treadaway Estate opposite the church car park entrance. When making use of the parking on the business estate please only park alongside the fence-line parallel to the businesses. If parking on surrounding residential streets please be considerate as we want to be good neighbours.
Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up.

Our Service

Our 10am service is an informal service of contemporary worship for all the family. The service begins with a time of all-age worship before children join their groups. Each week we hear a relevant message from the Bible and take time to pray together and respond to what God is saying and doing as we worship. Once a month we share in Holy Communion together.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • The Ark (0 months to 3 years)
  • Little Lions (3-5 years)
  • All Stars (5-10 years)
  • St Peter's Youth (11+ years)

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome and worship. We really value worshipping God altogether as a family. At the end of the family worship someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy.
Please collect your children at the end of the service from their relevant group.
