Kedington, St Peter and St Paul

Welcome to the Church of St Peter and St Paul in the Parish of Kedington. 

Sitting on the top of the hill, above the River Stour, our church looks down over the village. The tower, with its chiming clock, keeps time for us. The bells call us to worship and celebrate festivals and life events with us. 

We are open to visitors everyday, 365 days of the year, between 10am and 4pm. Enjoy the peace and quiet and perhaps add a prayer to our prayer board, light a candle in memory of a loved one or browse the second hand books. 

From November 2023 until Spring 2024, the windows on the south side of the church are being restored. The scaffolding does not look very pretty but the church will look much better when the work is completed.
