St Peter's

Welcome to our delightful and solid church, Grade II* listed.  It is open for private prayer all day, every day, unless there is a funeral or wedding. All are welcome to this ancient space where people have prayed for centuries, take a slow walk round the church or simply sit for a while.

The Churches of Peak Five welcome all to worship, irrespective of age or faith commitments. There are normally at least two services every Sunday somewhere within our benefice including a communion service at 11:15. If you can’t see showing here the Sunday service or event for which you are looking, click on the arrow in the purple ‘Our Benefice’ box. The ‘Services and Events’ page there will show all services and events within the Benefice.
