About St Peters
The site of St Peters has an amazing spiritual heritage dating back to AD 674 when the famed Monastic site was established by Benedict Biscop along with St Pauls in Jarrow. The twin sited monastic order of Jarrow Wearmouth heralded a golden age of creativity and learning, with the writings of the venerable Bede as well as the creation of the early Biblical volumes such as the Codex Amiatinus. There are some that think that even before the Jarrow-Wearmouth monastery the site was used by St Hild for a community of prayer. It is our aim that Celtic Prayer will resonate with the spiritual and creative heritage of this special site.
St Peters is situated on the North bank of the river Wear in Sunderland and is situated next to the St Peters campus of the University of Sunderland.
