Our aim in creating this website has been threefold:- firstly, to publicize information about our beautiful little church:- times of worship, social events, it's history and architecture; secondly, to share with you our enjoyment of the area in which it is set; and thirdly, to provide you with some thoughtful reading for the quieter moments in your life. Although stemming from the rhythm of the church's year, these articles could well speak meaningfully to you at any time.
Above all, we hope you don't just rush through our lovingly-created pages, but enjoy spending some time with us.
Jean and Pauline

This tradition of celebrating ‘bringing in the sheaves’ is one that goes back hundreds of years and everyone is warmly invited to come to the service and to the simple Harvest Lunch that follows it.
Flower arrangers will be in St. Peter’s on the morning of Saturday the 15th and they would be grateful for any gifts of produce and flowers.
