About Our Church

Welcome to St Peters Lutheran Church

St Peters Blackwood is a congregation of the Lutheran Church of Australia. We are situated at 71 Cumming Street Blackwood in the Adelaide Hills.

We gather for worship each Sunday at 10 am and you are always welcome to join us. We have a variety of worship styles. Our Pastor, Andrew Vanderwal will lead worship most weeks, with the occasional service led by one of our three very dedicated Lay readers in: Ken Semmler, Barbara Williams and Felicity Bond.

An integral part of our church is St Peters Lutheran Primary School, with students from ELC to Year 6.
