Before the church was built
The town of Swindon rapidly expanded in the 1980s and was soon regarded as the fastest growing town in Europe. The community of West Swindon came into being through the development of additional housing known as the "West Swindon expansion" and from 1979 until St Peter's Catholic Church was built in 1985, the Catholic comunity met to worship in ecumenical surroundings suchas Toothill Shared Church and various local schools. Daily Mass was celebrated in Canon LiamO'Driscoll's garage at 1, Liskeard Way, which had been made into a smal chapel.
