St Peter's Church, Newnham-on-Severn

Welcome to St Peter’s, Newnham on Severn! We are a friendly and active church, integral to the village community, welcoming people of all ages and abilities. It is the largest building in the village, set on the cliff overlooking the Severn, and a good place for groups to meet, and for meals, concerts, Burns Night and all sorts of things.

The church is open every day (between about 9am and 5pm) for private prayer, or just a quiet moment.  Our church services are usually every Sunday at 10am and every Thursday at 10.15am. (See note below about a different pattern in August 2022.) All are very welcome - and do stay for coffee/tea/biscuits after each service. 

During August 2022, our Sunday service pattern will be slightly different from usual. We will be worshipping with the communities of Awre and Blakeney at 10.30am every Sunday, instead of our regular 10am service. Please check out the services & events section to find out where these services will be. You are very welcome to join us as we meet together.

We hope, too, that you can find other useful things on this site. If you've just moved into the village we've produced a 'Welcome to Newnham' pack which gives details of all of our organisations, clubs, facilities etc. and a map. Do get in touch if you'd like a welcome pack, if you need more information or you want to talk anything through - see our contact details on the 'About us' page.
