Churchwardens are elected each year. The Church Wardens are here to help the Church to be a vital part of its neighbourhood – the parish of St Peter’s covers most of the area between the River Cole and the Stratford Road that is in the City of Birmingham and Hall Green. They are the Bishop of Birmingham’s officers for making sure that the welcome, the worship and the ministry of the church is as good as it can be.
Our churchwardens for 2018-2019 are Julia Tortise and Colin Dunbar. They can be contacted via the Parish Office
