Pettistree church community is small (like the village) which leads to the friendly atmosphere that characterises all the services. The church is part of the benefice of Wickham Market and the two churches together provide a broad spectrum of worship styles. This means that Christians of varying backgrounds can find a service which suits them and with which they are comfortable. This means the congregation comes from several villages including, Melton and Ufford and of course Wickham Market and Pettistree.

The monthly benefice magazine contains information about both communities and their organisations and is delivered by volunteers for small annual charge. Contact 01728 746708, to arrange this.

The congregation in Pettistree is generally comfortable with a more traditional form of service but that does not mean that it is 'old fashioned' in word or outlook. There is a monthly weekday morning communion service which is more meditative in style. All the morning Services on Sundays are followed by tea or coffee and a time to chat in the church, and the monthly midweek service is followed by coffee and cake in the Greyhound.
