Adderley St.Peter's

The Shropshire countryside may have a reputation for

being quiet and sleepy but the churches which are dotted

throughout stand as witnesses to sweeping shifts and

momentous moments in local and national life. The

unassuming presence of St Peter’s Church in the village of

Adderley, right up in the northeast corner of the county,

has plenty of stories of its own to tell.

Over nearly four centuries the church has seen peace and

prosperity, conflict and division, the building itself has

been extended, rebuilt and divided, the bells have rung

and been silenced, and the parish it serves has changed in

all sorts of ways.

St Peter’s Church has been there for the highs and lows of

life in Adderley, marking countless births, deaths and

marriages. It has hosted Harvest Festivals, Christmas

Carols, School celebrations and most importantly the

week in week out gathering of the faithful. This is the

heartbeat of the church, the heartbeat of the community,

as God’s people come together to lift their lives and the

life of their community to God in prayer and praise.
