Church of England Diocese of Chester Swettenham

St Peter's Church, Swettenham

We hold services in church every week.   You can find service information under Services and events. Our usual service sheet, and pew sheet of prayers and readings for the day can be downloaded here

Before you come to one of our services, please read the COVID-19 information and safety instructions. 

Note to visitors: The little road called Sandy Lane, which runs between Congleton/Swettenham Road and Swettenham Lane is impassable. This is due to a collapse in the road surface. There is no turning space. Some SatNav systems may try to send you down it. 

Swettenham is situated some five miles north-west of Congleton on the banks of the River Dane, which flows though the parish in a delightful and unspoilt valley, breaking up the flat but well-wooded country lying to the north and south. To the east the plain rises gently to a background formed by the east Cheshire hills.

St. Peter's Church serves the Parish of Swettenham. Our church is a beautiful, listed building, set in the Dane Valley.

We aim to serve the parish as a broad church, a musical church, an active church, a church for all ages, a church where everyone is always welcome.

St. Peter's is part of the Diocese of Chester and the Church of England, and is one of the Rural Daneside Churches.

The parish of Swettenham: St Peter is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. For information, click "Safeguarding".
