Annual Parochial Church Meeting
Here is the Annual Report and Financial Statement to 31st December 2022.
A variety of services are held, from the Prayer Book to more contemporary.
At present communion is held at 11 am at Great Cheverell on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month.
Lay Worship Leaders have been trained to lead services when Clergy cannot be available.
Welcome to Worship is a lay led service at 10.00 am every 3rd Sunday.
A servery has been installed.
This is a great advantage for catering at services and events.
The village community joins in Harvest Festival, Christmas Carol services and regular fundraising events.
There are close links with Holy Trinity Academy Primary School where assemblies are taken regularly.
St Peter’s church takes responsibility issues surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.

Historical Notes: The Church building (behind the Bell Inn) dates from the 13th and 14th Centuries with 1860s reconstruction.
The Bells here at St. Peter’s Church
We have six bells for change ringing and one clock bell that chimes the hours.
The oldest bell is dated c1500, three from the 1700’s one from 1879 and one from
1948 when the original five were augmented to the six that we ring today.
The heaviest, Tenor bell weighs 11½ cwt.
We are part of the Devizes branch of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers and meet for practice on Tuesday evenings at 7:15pm where ringers of all standards are most welcome.
If you are interested in learning to ring, please contact:
email: email@example.com or phone: 07957 743743.
