Welcome to St Peter's Church, Alvescot.
Due to issues with the roof structure, the church is temporarily closed and we are worshipping in the village hall. 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 https://svbb.org.uk/alvescot/ and take a look at the guide here: https://www.cotswolds.com/dbimgs/Church_Alvescot%20guide.pdf

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.
The parish of Alvescot 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(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs.
