Alvescot St Peter

Welcome to St Peter's Church, Alvescot. 

We hope you will enjoy visiting our church which reopened for our Harvest Festival on Sept 17th 2023 after two years of closure due to structural issues with the roof timbers. The church building will be open for services and we hope to have visiting times on Saturdays, too, so please look at our news or events section for details. We are really looking forward to being able to host baptisms, weddings and funerals once more - these important markers in family life are special times. Please use the contact details for our Benefice Administrator, Trish, given under the Get in Touch section of the menu, or come to a service and chat to one of the Churchwardens, Jayne or Jenny. We look forward to meeting you.

You can find out about local events including services from noticeboards in the churchyard and church porch. Please visit our Benefice website which gives more details about the church at and take a look at the guide here:

The church porch is a great place to shelter from hot sun or rain when you're out on a walk. You are welcome to park in the car park and picnic under our ancient oak tree. There are many footpaths around the village and you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the graveyard as part of them. You may enjoy a short circular walk down the ancient path behind the church to join Mill Lane again after crossing Old Court, the site of the original village. From there you can see the aircraft taking off from RAF Brize Norton. The meadows around the area are full of wild flowers in spring and summer and our graveyard is managed to promote wildlife.
