Upton Parish Church (St Peter and St Paul's)
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, our building and services are closed at the moment, however you can join our regular online services every day, and on Sunday at www.hopechurchfamily.org/virtual
Welcome! We are a friendly and welcoming church with a range of services that offer something for everyone.
If you are looking for a lively and modern Sunday service, then try our all-age Breakfast Church (1st and 2nd Sundays). Your 6-11 year olds will love our midweek Base Camp, and Girls Only groups, and we also run The Deep End for the 8-14 age range. Click here for more details of our work with young people.
If your tastes are more traditional, then why not give our choral communion services (3rd and 4th Sundays) or our occasional choral evensongs. Our music director lays on a regular programme of concerts and recitals – see the concerts page for more info.
Alternatively, if you prefer something quieter and more intimate, try our evensong and midweek communion services.
We run a regular Monday morning Bible study (“Start the Week”), please contact the vicar for more information.
We work closely with The Church of the Good Shepherd, Hook, and a number of other churches in the area and occasionally have joint services. Please keep an eye on our events list for these.
The church is most definitely the people, never the building, but if you do like church architecture, then the building is usually open to visitors from around 9:30am-5pm throughout the week (or dusk in the winter). If you’d like to visit outside these hours get in touch and we’ll try to help. Visitors are always welcome to drop in, though please be aware that very occasionally we host events or services which may not be open to visitors.
We want our building to be a real community resource, so we encourage its use for concerts, exhibitions and Upton’s many music festivals, as well as welcoming the local primary school in for regular services.
If you want to get in touch, please don't use the email system in this website as we don't check it often. Instead email [email protected]
