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

In accord with the practice adopted within Salisbury (and other) Diocese, during July we will reintroduce the common cup at Eucharist services in St Peter’s for those who wish to receive the full sacrament. It remains entirely acceptable for any communicant not wishing to receive the wine to continue to receive just the bread.

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.
