St Peter's church is at the heart of the village and dates back to the 11th century on its present site. The fabric is in good repair and a good oil heating system, along with a friendly atmosphere, ensure a warm welcome for all who visit.
The church is floodlit on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and can be seen for several miles away. People can also pay for the lights on special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries etc.
The tower contains 3 bells which can be chimed only. They are often used at weddings. The tower also sports a tractor weathervane to reflect our farming links.
The worship pattern is No Service on the 1st Sunday, Holy Communion at 9.15am on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and Evening Worship at 5.00pm on the 3rd Sunday. We also have a Family Service at 10.45am on the 4th Sunday, led by Laity. When there is a 5th Sunday in the month the service is normally a Group Communion which is rotated between the 4 churches in the Group.
Foston PCC organise various social events each year, including Harvest Supper, Cheese & Wine Evening and Coffee Mornings. Church notelets and bookmarks are also produced internally for sale. Proceeds from a Foston History Book also go to church funds.
