Welcome to St Peter's Church Website
STOP PRESS: Due to a danger of falling masonry from the tower, anything that involves the rear of church, including the kitchen area/creche/cabin will not happen. We are hoping this will be fixed by the end of October, so normality can resume. Please check eNews or ask a warden for latest updates.
Monthly message from our priest:
I am sure that you have all noticed that the Bells of St Peters have been somewhat quiet over the past few weeks. The 'Golden Cockerel' has taken out its frustrations at being left to face the elements on the Church Tower, having weakened it enough for us to have been forced to silence the bells, close the back of church and create an exclusion zone in the Graveyard, to protect you all from the very unlikely chance that masonry from the Tower falls to the ground.
I am very grateful to the financial support we have received from the Parish Council and others, thank you! Also if you wish to support us in meeting the bill do contact me or one of our Church Wardens. The work begins hopefully before too long and I am sure all will be back to normal well before Christmas.
The funny thing about these sort of incidents and challenges are that they make you think about what is important and what your priorities should be. We are working at the moment to develop the back of St Peter's to create a space that can be used by not only the Church, but also by the wider community, it will form a key part of what we offer to the village.
A community that pulls together for the enhancement of its people is one which lives out what is the core Christian value of love and support for neighbour. The Tower being out of action and its fall out, has helped to focus even more clearly on our call to be Church in Community, for that we can thank the 'Golden Cockerel'.
