Where We Are

The Church building probably has some Saxon material but the present building was begun in the 12th Century and completed by about 1400. It is Listed Grade 1, and the spire, rising to just under 200 feet, is a notable landmark. Pevsner describes it as “the finest spire in a county of fine spires”.

The church recently had statues installed of our patron saints, Peter and Paul. These are by Peter Ball in memory of Sara Allday.

The huge, irregularly shaped font has associations with Saint Rumbold, who was born here in 662.


Accessibility

The west porch has level access into the church and we have a loop system and large print service books available.


Floodlighting

The building is floodlit each evening until 23:00 but may be sponsored to mark an anniversary or other celebration, in which case it remains lit all night. Contact Stephen Allday on 01295 811473.


The Church Room

Located in the south-west corner of the churchyard, the Church Room is available for hire. It has a small kitchen and disabled toilets and changing facilities for babies, and is suitable for events for up to 30 people. Contact Carole Hill on 01295 811134 for details.
