About Us

We are part of the larger parish of Ingham, Ampton and Great and Little Livermere and we all worship together around the three churches. 

St Peter's's is a beautiful 13th century, grade 1 listed, thatched church which is open every day. The roof was rethatched in the 1980’s and the ridge was redone in 2018. Inside the church are wall paintings, a three decker pulpit and one of the finest organs in the area.

​Great Livermere has two famous sons: William Sakings, Falconer to Charles I, Charles II, and James II, who is commemorated in the village sign and buried in the churchyard and Montague Rhodes James, son of a 19th century incumbent who went on to become the provost of Eton College and later King’s College Cambridge. He was an historian, antiquarian writer and biblical scholar, as well as the originator of the English ghost story and many of his stories were set in the village. There is a commemorative plaque to him inside the church.

​There is a leaflet about the building available in the church as well as a photographic guide.  Postcards and notelets available for sale.

​The church is open daily in daylight hours.

It also houses a food pantry, in the porch, which is stocked as funds are available and from which anyone in need can help themselves.

Common Worship Holy Communion is held on the 4th Sunday of the month in Great Livermere at 10am and ​Common Worship Morning Prayer is said on the 3rd Friday morning at 9am.   

Our aim is to worship the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to teach the bible in a way that is relevant to everyday life, to enable people to grow in faith, understanding and love, equip people to serve and to offer people the opportunity to meet with Jesus and discover forgiveness and new life.
