Church of England Diocese of Ely St. Peter, March

St Peter's

We are a thriving Anglican Church in the centre of the market town of March. Our weekly Family Communion Service congregation includes people of all ages. Our active Junior Church meets at the same time as our Family Service. Our clergy are pleased to visit people in their own homes. Please contact us if you know anyone who would appreciate a visit or would like to receive Home Communion.

St.Peter’s is a fine example of a Victorian Church, built in 1881, of Ancaster stone with Bath stone mouldings. It was built to hold 700 people, with a chancel, nave, a Priest's vestry, a children’s room, which now serves as a choir vestry, a tower and a spire with a single bell. The building itself remains largely unchanged, though improved facilities on site include a community hall, kitchen and toilet facilities, all accessible to less able-bodied visitors. The north aisle of the church also now serves as a Lady Chapel suitable for smaller services and private prayer.

The buildings are well used for worship, not only by the congregation of St. Peter’s but by other community organisations, and for a range of community activities. The Church is open every day from approx. 9 am to 5 pm (or sunset if earlier). You are welcome to look around or just sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

Knit and Natter

Every Tuesday at 10 a.m. for 1hr 30m

High Street

St Peter’s Knit & Knatter group meets in the Church Hall every Tuesday (except the 1st of the month) from 10-11.30am and they make the most beautiful things!

Crocheted blankets are made from donated wool and are then given to those in need; those in hospital, the homeless, food bank users and many others who are struggling physically, emotionally or spiritually.

The group is open to all, regardless of faith or church attendance, age or ability. Whether you are a seasoned knitter looking for some company or a beginner who would like to learn to knit/crochet in a friendly, informal environment, just pop along to any sessions and you will be more than welcome!

Donations of wool are always appreciated - if you have any stashed away that you no longer need, please feel free to drop it into any of their Tuesday sessions, or at the church or rectory if more convenient.
