Church of England Diocese of York Wawne, St. Peter

About Us

St Peter’s is set in Wawne, an East Yorkshire village. The parish includes Kingswood, Kingswood Parks and North Bransholme in Hull as well as Wawne, Meaux and the farms in between. We aim to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of people living in all these places. We have a welcoming but small congregation, with friendly conversation for about 30 minutes prior to our weekly 11am Sunday services. Details of services, and special events can be found using the links here. You can also contact us for information about weddings and baptisms.
 

St Peter’s Church dates back to the twelfth century. The chronicles of the nearby Cistercian Meaux Abbey (of which only earthworks remain) contain records of Wawne church.  Chalk and stone quarried at Hessle and Brantingham were transported to Wawne to build Meaux Abbey and it is likely that the materials for St. Peter's also came from these sources. The building has been added to and altered over the years, but it retains the simple peaceful character of a mediaeval country church.
