After extensive work on our organ St Peters Church Monks Eleigh has re-opened and you can visit it every day from sunrise to sunset. We meet for Wednesday Morning Prayers every Wednesday at 10am, however on the 5th Sunday of every month the service is a Celtic one.

Our lovely English organ has been refurbished and re-installed to a new part of the Church.
