About Us

St Peter's is part of the Five Alive Mission Community: Dalwood, Kilmington, Shute with Whitford and Yarcombe.

Dalwood, a beautiful East Devon Village of about 400 residents, is situated at the southern end of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as the Blackdown Hills. The population is made up of families with generations of local connections and newcomers who have integrated well and brought much to the village. There is a very strong community spirit as demonstrated by the number of organisations and also the range of events put on each year, most of which raise funds for numerous charities.

St Peter’s Church

The Church is at the centre of the village. The programme of Sunday services moves between 11.00am and 9.30am, most being clergy led but some lay-led. There are also joint services with the other 4 churches in the Mission Community. Activities for both the Church and the village are guided by Worship teams, a pastoral team and social and fabric committees. A monthly Community Lunch is held in the Village Hall and other events include house groups, coffee mornings, a flower festival and garden parties. The PCC meets 4 times a year. Church finances are well managed with a good reserve.
