St Peter's Church

St Peter’s, Cornworthy

Category: Amenities

Dedicated to St Peter, this church is the second oldest building in the village, its fabric mostly dating from the 14th Century. The early-16th-century screen is still in place – look for the pomegranates connected with Catherine of Aragon – and there is an almost complete set of Georgian pews dating from 1788. Inside them there are unique 19th-century graffiti. The font is Norman and points to the fact that there was once a much earlier structure than the one we see now.
We are open every day from 9.30am – 4.30pm.  Church services are at 9.15 am and comprise an informal Village Worship run by the community with a combined Holy Communion Service at Ashprington on the first Sunday of the month and a priest led Holy Communion at Cornworthy on the third Sunday.  We warmly welcome all visitors to not only engage with our services but also enjoy the history of our much loved and ancient place of worship.
