Dear Visitors,

       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.

Sadly we have been unable to edit this website for technical reasons for the last five months but now we are on line again, thanks to the kind help of Paul Cheall.

     We hope you don't just rush through our lovingly-created pages, but enjoy spending some time with us.

December 6th 2021 - We are being migrated to a more secure website provider but this is taking much longer than expected - so unfortunately we are still unable to edit or update this site until possibly February 2022.  Apologies.

However, we have a temporary website with new and more recent content to keep things ticking over (

Also, you can keep up to date with the services at St Peter’s Church via the Martham Benefice website.
