St Peter's Church stands at the heart of the village, a visible reminder of the centuries of worship that have taken place in the village. A small but faithful congregation continues to worship in the church and within the wider team of churches in the Blyth Valley. Services to celebrate major Christian festivals, such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest, are well-attended, as is the annual service on Remembrance Sunday. Throughout the month a variety of services takes place including a 9.30am Holy Communion every second and third Sunday, “Infusion” an opportunity for spiritual reflection most months on the third Sunday at 6.30pm, and an informal short service followed by refreshments at 11.15am every fourth Sunday. Regular joint services are held with the congregation of the Methodist Chapel. Many villagers have links to the church through family weddings, baptisms and funerals. Every All Souls' Day the church invites people to light a candle in remembrance of a loved one who has died.
The church sees its mission within the community as central to its existence. It is open every day for people to drop in and make use of its quiet space. Every month the church provides lunches and social time for people living on their own. The church has held “Café Calling” events: a series of challenging discussions about social justice topics. Hosting art and music events has brought together people from different parts of the community to celebrate our heritage and environment. A new team of bell ringers has recently been established and visiting ringers are once again coming to use the facilities.
The church dates back to medieval times and has a steady stream of visitors who come to see the world famous Doom, a striking piece of art depicting the medieval vision of Judgement Day.
