Faith events happening soon:
St. Peter’s, Pitton
St. Peter’s is not just about Sundays. It is all about its people! Those who come on Sundays, those who do the gardening, those who clean , those who open and lock up the church: ALL those who care in one way or another about our church and for our church. We are grateful to you all. See here for details of what else happens in and around the church during the rest of the week. Click here to go to the History of St.Peters.
What makes for a vibrant village? The school, the shop, the pub, the village hall, the various clubs and activities contribute much to our village life.

We seek to be… a worshipful church
We usually have the following Sunday Services at 11.00 a.m. in St. Peter’s:
We believe that everything we do should be underpinned by prayer so we meet to pray every Tuesday in St Peter’s from 9.15 to 9.45, it could be just two or three or up to ten people but it has happened for ten years without omission.
We seek to be . . . a welcoming and inclusive church

We seek to be . . . a joyful and grateful church
We think having fun is important and the church in Pitton hosts several events each year including Village Breakfasts, Lent lunches, Guest Services, and a St Peter’s Day celebration. Everyone is warmly invited to these events. Check Events and the Calendar for notices of upcoming events.
We thank God for the friends and neighbours who provide practical support to the church by providing venues, cutting the grass, cleaning the church, arranging the flowers, participating in the church opening rota, producing and distributing the Dun Valley News and contributing in many different ways. We could not function as well as we do without these willing volunteers. St Peter’s is all about its people!
