A visitor’s guide to St Peter’s church
St Peter’s Church is part of the new ‘Five Church Trail’which includes the churches in Kinnerley, Knockin, Maesbrook and Maesbury. A heritage fund lottery sponsorship has enabled the Five Churches to produce a new website, numerous visitor booklets, detective booklets, interactive church tours, pilgrim badges and many more. You can find out more about the cycling and walking routes in the churches and bring your smart phone to access some media content.
All five churches have booklets and information and are freely available. Go and visit all the churches and collect your pilgrim badge as you go.
Your visitors guide to St Peter’s is enclosed with your Telescope news.
The church was beautifully decorated with a most splendid tree adorned with a host of angels made by members of the community.
Sunday 17th December- we celebrated our annual Carols and Nativity service. This was extremely well supported with young people of the community taking part in the nativity story and families and friends joining in with the carols. Following the service the congregation were once again invited by Andrew and Jen, at the Tontine, for much appreciated mulled wine and mince pies. We even stood outside in the dark to cheer on the Christmas Tractor Run.
Group visits If you are a member of a group looking for a place of interest to visit this year, we offer ‘The story of Melverley Church’ from 1401. Any size of group, however big or small. Combine this with coffee and cake.
