We are a Methodist and Anglican Ecumenical Partnership. Our parish covers the adjacent villages of North and South Wheatley. We use the church of St Peter and St Paul, which stands at the top of Church Hill in the highest part of North Wheatley. In addition, we have responsibility for the ruins of St Helen's Church in South Wheatley and the graveyard in which they stand.
We used to use the Wesleyan Chapel on Low Street North Wheatley in addition to St Peter and St Paul’s, but the increasing cost of maintaining two places of worship, particularly in view in the steep increase in energy costs in 2022, we decided after much reflection and soul-searching to close the Chapel. It was very hard decision to close a much-loved building which had been home to many joyous events, both worship and social. The last service was held in the Chapel on Sunday 29 January 2023.
The Church in Wheatley is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSOs. The Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm, please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
