A Grade 1 listed church with parts dating from medieval times, the earliest recorded place of worship on the site being a Norman chapel. There is a Norman font in the church and also a 19th century stained glass window by Charles Kempe.
Memorials include the Moton family, Thomas Harvey (d.1544) and his two wives (Thomas with a wife on each side depicted on the alabaster tomb cover on a church wall) and Robert Chessher.
A recent discovery was a wooden cross from a First World War battlefield grave that was affixed to a stone cross in the graveyard and is now inside on the church wall. George Fallodown lies in a War Graves Commission cemetery in Belgium but his parents had the cross that was used to mark his first burial place brought back to Peckleton and fixed to the stone memorial – a gravestone with no interment.

The normal pattern of services has been disrupted because of Covid and as we reopen we are looking to hold different styles of service at different times of the year. A post-Covid 2021-2022 schedule is currently being planned. Fixed points we can already announce are the Service of Remembrance on Sunday 14 November at 10.45am and our traditional Carol Service (with orchestra) at 3pm on Christmas Eve – subject to any restrictions on congregating that may prevail at the time.
