St. Peter's Collegiate Church
St Peter’s serves the City as a wonderful sanctuary. It is open 1000 until 1600 each weekday during BST (and 1000 until 1400 at other times). It is open from 1000 until 1230 on Saturday and around services on Sundays all year round.
You will find places to sit in warmth, peace and quiet, places to pray, someone to talk to if you wish, a shop offering Christian books and artefacts and our nearby coffee shop, which offers a friendly welcome and the best homemade scones in Wolverhampton!
Worship is in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. Vestments, reservation and the sacrament of reconciliation are all part of our tradition with incense used at festival services.
We have an excellent music department with more than 70 children and young people involved along with Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars. We also have a very fine set of bells - the second oldest complete set of twelve in the country.

We are currently undergoing a large project to restore our historic Father Willis organ. Alongside working on all the moving parts and sound of the instrument, the front pipes are being returned to their former glory.
We hope the restoration will be complete by Christmas 2019.
