St Peter and St Paul is at the heart of the delightful Cotswold village of Blockley. For more than a thousand years the church has been a landmark at the centre of the village.


ChancelThe church is open every day, and a prayer space is set aside to leave your own prayers.  Our worship on Sundays is broad, including both traditional and modern services. Newcomers to the village and visitors are very welcome.Norah Yoxall window in the north porch


We are part of the Vale and Cotswold Edge team of 13 churches, and share training, groups and pastoral support across the churches. 


Blockley church works particularly closely with St Lawrence at Bourton-on-the-Hill. We worship together regularly, and share social events. Blockley church is also home to Father Brown - the BBC TV series.
