St Peter

Welcome to the parish church of St Peter, Cowfold in the Diocese of Chichester. We are a friendly and welcoming church linked with Holy Trinity in Lower Beeding and St John's, Coolhurst. The church building dates back to the 13th century and has many interesting features including some ancient stained glass windows and a brass to Thomas Nelond from the Priory of Lewes. The church is open every day for visitors and private prayer.

St Peter's, Cowfold is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Chichester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
