We are a small village church committed to engaging with all members of our rural community wherever they are on their journey of faith. We currently hold 3 Sunday services a month (see the services pages for more details) but also hold many other one-off services and events at various times throughout each year.
We are doing what we can to help the environment around us, as we believe God's earth is precious. Helped by our Churchyard Champions we are making the Churchyard more welcoming for wildlife and humans, and have recently achieved the Wildlife Trust Bronze Churchyard Award. You can read more about this here, and also the latest report on our progress here. We support the work of Caring for God's Acre and have signed up to A Rocha to be an 'Eco Church'.
The Church is usually open during daylight hours.
Whether an occasional Churchgoer, or someone who would rather not venture into organised services, we hope you feel welcome at St Peter's. Some people help out with our re-wilding, some people help out with services, some people are very generous with helping us to fundraise. All are loved and valued members of our community, and are doing God's work.
Our building is a simple and modest early 13th century aisle-less church, with a 14th century tower and alterations, and a 15th century roof structure, with C16th century carved bench-ends.
Some very fine furnishings were installed c.1900 by Athelstan Riley, then patron of the living – these include early an 16th century German carved and painted reredos, a Danish pulpit (1706) with painted panels, and an 18th century Dutch brass chandelier.
