Church of St Peter, Stanton Lacy

The Saxon church of St Peter has been serving the parish of Stanton Lacy since the early 11th century, and there was probably a church on this site for 300 years before that.

It is one of 6 churches that form the Bromfield Benefice within the Ludlow Deanery, itself within the diocese of Hereford.  The priest with pastoral care for our 6 parishes is Revd Fr Justin Parker. Tel 07932 606 420. I

We hold services on 4 Sundays of every month, and when there is a 5th Sunday, we join with the other 5 parishes in our Group for a combined service.  Visitors are always welcome, and after morning services we share news over a cup of coffee.

Baptisms, weddings and funerals are arranged through our Benefice Administrator, Grace Johnson, 07493 247 184, Office Hours Monday and Wednesday, 0930-1230.

We like the church to be used for other community events.  In recent years we have hosted two concerts a year, one shortly before Christmas, and one at the time of our patronal festival, near the end of June.  At that time we also encourage visitors with strawberry teas and exhibitions by local artists and photographers.

The churchyard is well known for a great show of snowdrops in January and February, and visitors are provided with refreshments during the second week-end of February.

Being the church with the most significant Saxon remains in the area, we have two to three hundred visitors a year, who we like to encourage by providing information about this and other local churches.  Donations from such visitors help us with conservation work, which has been extensive throughout the last decade.

We support various charities, including particularly at this time RIPPLE-Africa.
