On July 6, 1957, John Lennon and his band, the Quarrymen, were playing the annual garden party at this church. In between sets, John's friend, Ivan Vaughan, introduced him to a 15-year-old Paul McCartney. Paul was asked to join the band shortly after that.

Also notable about this church is that the churchyard at St. Peter's contains the grave of Eleanor Rigby, a possible source of the 1966 Beatles song.

John used to be in this congregation with his aunt and uncle, George Toogood Smith, who is also buried in the churchyard. John was in the youth group here and used to sing in the choir occasionally.
