Welcome to St Peter's, Heversham


Saint Luke, a doctor and historian as well as an early convert to Christianity, researched and wrote his gospel account for a Roman readership, and also continued with the Book of Acts of the Apostles, which outlines the dynamic beginnings and development of the Early Christian Church.

In his first Chapter of Acts we read of the commission that Jesus gave to his closest disciples (to be called apostles), ‘you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth’.

During their lifetime, the gospel of Jesus Christ had spread all around the Mediterranean, into Spain and Gaul (France), and even further afield, and Christian communities of all shapes and sizes were flourishing despite hardship and persecution.
