St Peter’s Church Opening and Services

The Church continues to be open for prayer each day and all Covid 19 measures have been waived.

Having for some time now been receiving bread and wine at Holy Communion, in accord with renewed practice in Salisbury cathedral, with effect from the 1st of July 2022 we propose a return to the Chalice (the common cup). However, if anyone feels this is a step too far, please feel able to continue to receive in one kind only but please also make your views known.

Until further notice, all queries relating to Church-related support and services should be directed to the Church wardens in the first instance:

Getting Involved

Villagers are involved in the Church in flower arranging, brass cleaning, Church locking and Churchyard mowing and more volunteers are always needed.



As members of the Church, we commit our church community to the support, nurture, protection and safeguarding of all.  The Parochial Church Council (PCC) acknowledge its responsibility for all who work with young adults and adults who may be at risk of abuse, that is done in the name of the Church.  The PCC requires all those in such work to be properly appointed and supported with current good practice and guidelines.  The full text of the commitment in the form of a resolution of the PCC is posted below and on the Church Notice Board along with contact details for the Parish Safeguarding Officer.  A copy of the full Safeguarding Policy is held within the Church and available to all.
