Peter's House started in August 2017, with four volunteers from around the globe spending a year of their time living in a shared community with each other and helping the Hull URC Churches.
At the present time - because of the pandemic and travel restrictions - Peter's House is temporarily suspended, but it is hoped that the project will re-start in September 2023.
