About St. Peter's

Welcome to St. Peter's website! Our church (like any church) is a community of people with one thing in common: our love for Jesus Christ. We try as best we can to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
Our regular Sunday services happen at 8:00am (a service of Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month), and weekly at 9:30am (format varies from week to week). Occasionally there are changes to these times.
Aside from our Sunday worship, we have a home group, jointly with St. Nicolas Itchingfield, which you can join, a midweek service at 10:00am most Thursdays, and all sorts of other activities!
In all that we do, our aim is simple: to share God's love and do his work in this community. You'll always be very welcome to join in!

The church is usually open to all for private prayer, everyday between 10am and 4pm
