About Us

St Peter's church is located at the heart of the historic Manx village of Cregneash (or Cregneish to use its traditional spelling) and is attended by a faithful congregation. From the church there are stunning views to the Calf of Man. The church is open daily during the summer months so that visitors to the village can appreciate the beauty and the stillness of the church.

Our regular services are:

      First Sunday - Evening Prayer - Book of Common Prayer

      Second Sunday - Evening Prayer - Book of Common Prayer

      Third Sunday - Holy Communion - Book of Common Prayer

      Fourth Sunday - Joint service at Kirk Christ at 11am - Holy Communion Common Worship

      Fifth Sunday - Evening Prayer - Book of Common Prayer

The Rev. William Corrin (the Vicar from 1824 to 1859) started church services in a local farmhouse at Cregneash and these continued until the villagers felt that they would like a church of their own. The foundation stone was laid in 1878 by Mrs EM Gawne (who also donated the land). During its early years the building served the dual purpose of being the village school during the week and holding church services on Sunday. In more recent years the church was used in the filming of the 1998 hit comedy 'Waking Ned'.

St Peter's is one of the four churches in the Parish of Rushen which is situated in the south west corner of the Isle of Man, serving Port Erin, Port St Mary and Cregneash.
