St Peter's Shelley

St Peter's church is normally open daily during daylight hours to visitors, tourists and pilgrims and as a quiet space for private prayer and reflection. St Peter's is at present operating as a Chapel of Ease with the Bishop's permission although we do hold occasional services there. Unfortunately, the church is located away from the centre of Shelley and with a worshipping congregation of less than five, the PCC feel it is becoming unsustainable and it is actively exploring the possibility of closing the building. However, we still have a very strong commitment in serving this part of the Parish and in the event of closure the PCC would remain responsible for the maintenance of the churchyard and this would also still be open for access and for burials.
