ABOUT US

The parish of St Peter and St Paul has a small but active congregation with typically 40-45 regular communicants. At special services like Easter and Christmas Eve we would expect many more, regularly exceeding 150, especially as we join with the Methodist and Baptist churches in the village for those services.
