St. Peter's Anglican Church, Hopton, Staffordshire.

Whoever you are and wherever you are on a journey of faith you are most welcome.

We are part of ten inclusive, friendly church communities within the church family of the Anglican Diocese of Lichfield. We have extremely close ties with St James Salt in the neighboring village of Salt. 

We aim to  be building God's inclusive kingdom of unconditional love as we try to follow Christ in the footsteps of Saint Chad. Our diocese was founded by St Chad. You are always welcome.

This particular church is a small, most welcoming church of St Peter's Hopton , Staffordshire. We'd be delighted to meet you.

Fr Jason is our parish priest and Rector  and the Revd Mike our vicar.

Our group of churches  covers the Staffordshire villages of Burston, Fradswell, Gayton, Hixon, Hopton, Milwich, Salt, Sandon, Stowe by Chartley and Weston. It also includes the Mid Trent Academy Schools Trust that includes Saint Andrew's School, Weston .

Shaped by inspirational leaders, each church and school interprets their Anglican identity and character to the local context.

We believe in an inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in an hospitable Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is inherently Eucharistic and sacramental, scripturally faithful but open to new insights; which seeks to proclaim and apply the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.

We subscribe to The Armed Forces Covenant along with the Diocese and do all we can to support the Armed Forces of the Crown , those that support them and their families. Locally we are keen to support MOD Stafford.

May God's peace and blessing be upon you.
