Myddle Church

St Peter's - Myddle

St Peter’s is on the edge of the village on the road to Baschurch, on a prominent site surrounded by trees and a peaceful churchyard. It was founded in Saxon times, although the present building is largely 18th Century with the tower dating from 1636.
We are a welcoming, relaxed church seeking to minister to all ages. There is a children’s area, toilet and kitchen and we use the church for concerts and other social events as well as regular Sunday worship.
We have strong links with our local (C of E) Primary School and the wider village communities of Myddle and Harmer Hill.
The church is open daily for quiet prayer and to the many visitors who explore the area. We are on the ‘Marches Way’ footpath, on one of Shropshire’s many cycle routes, and we have strong literary and historic interest through Richard Gough who wrote a History of Myddle 1700-1702.

Baptisms
