St Peter’s church is set in the village of Church Langton, in south Leicestershire, near to the town of Market Harborough. Worship is Anglican (Church of England). We use the ‘Common Worship’ red book for our services. St Peter’s is one of the four churches forming the Benefice of the Langtons and Shangton in the Diocese of Leicester.The church serves three villages in its parish, East Langton, West Langton and Church Langton village itself.
The building is managed day-to-day by its PCC – or Parochial Church Council. This a small team of volunteers (seven at present) who are usually lead by a Priest-in-Charge. At this time, our Benefice does not have a parish priest (a time called ‘Interregnum’) but we have the support of local retired clergy who help the PCC with services and pastoral care for its parishioners and wider church family.
Worship and Services
Like all the churches in our Benefice, St Peters offers regular worship – with a service every Sunday morning at 10:30am. These services are lead by a visiting priest and include Holy Communion. The only exception is the second Sunday of the month, which is a family service lead by our Lay Reader. When a fifth Sunday occurs, the Benefice comes together to worship at one of its churches. You can find the full rota for all of our churches in the ‘Services’ section of the website.
St Peter’s also offers special services during the year – Easter, Remembrance Sunday, family weddings, baptisms and funerals are all offered. Contact us for more details – or look at the Services section on the website here.
