Getting here

The historic parish church of St. Pierre du Bois is beautifully set on a slope below Les Buttes, where the local militia would have practised their bowmanship in times gone by. It is a favourite for weddings due to its picturesqe setting.

The church and grounds are well-kept and provide the opportunity for quiet reflection during the day. The sloping aisle is often remarked upon. There is a newly installed stained glass window, designed by Maurice Strike, a previous Rector, and beside the altar another window depicts St. Peter as a fisherman wearing a Guernsey sweater. The colours of the local militia have been restored and are framed and on display.

The need for fund-raising has resulted in the establishment of various events throughout the year including a Christmas Market on the 'village green', recitals in the church, a harvest lunch and a traditional summer fete complete with brass band.

Welcoming to locals and visitors alike, the services on Sundays follow a changing pattern of early morning Holy Communion, Parish Communion, Evensong and a monthly family service. The services are supported musically by an excellent organist, an occasional choir and by a small orchestra. The bellringers practise on Friday evenings, and ring prior to the morning services, as well as for weddings and public occasions.

From May 12th 2017 our rector is Dr. Adrian Datta.
