Coronavirus – Covid-19

Church of England Last updated Tuesday 17 March 2020 at 13:30

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.

Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place. Prayers can be said by clergy and ministers on behalf of everyone and churches should consider ways of sharing this with the wider community.

St Peter’s church continues to open during the daytime for visit and quiet reflection but all services, events and worship are now cancelled or postponed until further notice.


Here is a prayer for us all in these uncertain times.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

Discovery walk – August

We were delighted to explore the churchyard with a Discovery Walk – All manner of wildlife birds, insects, fungi and plants were found on a lovely summer’s afternoon. Everyone really enjoyed this activity and we plan to host more at different times of the year to experience the different seasons. The photos tell the story very well – We can’t wait to do this again!

Heritage Talks – July 2019

Heritage Open Days and Festival of Archaeology

We were delighted to launch our Visitors Guide and host two events at St Peter’s on 10th July.

We had tours of the church and a talk with demonstration of how the roofing work was undertaken given by our conservation architect Bryan Martin and contractor Shaun Ward of Prestige Metal Roofing. The 60 visitors we had throughout the day, were very pleased with the Visitor’s Guide and tour and were especially impressed with Bryan and Shaun and how skilled Shaun is at hand working the lead.
