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.

Services
We worship at 11.00am each Sunday, and all our services seek to be accessible to all. The pattern is:

1st Sunday
2nd Sunday
3rd Sunday
4th Sunday

Family Service
Family Communion
Family Communion
Morning Worship (non-communion)

On the 5th Sunday we seek to affirm our unity as a group by holding a special united service:

5th Sunday

10.30am Group Communion Service (one service in each parish church by turn)

Weddings
St Peter’s is a wonderful setting to affirm your love for each other before God and your family and friends. We are here to support and advise you through your time of planning for your wedding, and also in your future life as husband and wife.
The Church building is beautiful and can seat about 150 people, has a lovely pipe organ and 3 bells, has toilet facilities, and is well heated!
The cost of a wedding at St Peter’s currently ranges from £450.50 (which includes the calling of the Banns, the Organist, the Rehearsal and the Service itself) to £580.50 if you wish to have bells, choir and are having the service videoed. Flowers are a separate item which we can give guidance about.

Baptisms take place in our normal Sunday worship, generally in the Family Service on the 1st Sunday, as this is a shorter service, with coffee afterwards, and is the best setting for baptism when we welcome a new member into our church family.
