Great Totham: St Peter's

Welcome to St Peter’s Church

Our Parish church is a beautiful Grade II* listed building that dates back to the 13th century. It lies in the heart of rural Essex overlooking the River Blackwater estuary. It provides a special place for community worship and a tranquil haven of peace in our busy world.


"The parish of Great Totham 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 Chelmsford’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."


Our Prayer for Growth

God of mission
Who alone brings growth to your Church,
Send your Holy Spirit
to give Vision to our planning,
Wisdom to our actions,
and Power to our witness.
Help our church to grow in numbers,
In spiritual commitment to you
and in service to our community,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen

We think you will agree that this is a beautifully worded prayer and we would like to encourage everyone in the Benefice to commit to pray this prayer every day over the coming year. We will also be using it in our services, in our PCC meetings, Bible Studies, and at every available opportunity!
