Church of England Diocese of Ely St. Peter, March

About Us

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.
