What we offer on a school trip
Step back in time to December 1940. Ss Peter, Paul and St Philomena’s Church is 5 years old, a hub of the community, escaping damage during sustained bombing and earning its nickname, The Dome of Home, in the Battle of the Atlantic.
Bringing history and RE to life, we offer an Education Pack with a brand-new Audio Tour, based on truth, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of the Restoration of the church. The visit is free of charge.
Enrich your pupil’s learning of WWII in Wallasey and meet some of the characters who shaped Wallasey during WWII, using our children’s audio tour via smartphone or tablet. Find out how this church helped local people during these difficult times. Your pupils will experience the awe and wonder of this Place of Worship as they learn about the Christian Faith, history of the building and people involved in its story.
