St Peter’s Church dates back to the 11th or 12th Century with its most notable feature, a Norman arch over the South Door. It seats about 60 people, making it one of the smallest in Suffolk. It is open every day until dusk, which is much appreciated by those who visit and leave positive messages in the Visitor’s Book. The churchyard is well maintained with a lovely display of wild flowers in the spring.
The Church has two Services each month at 09.30. On the second Sunday is Holy Communion, and Morning Prayer is on the fourth Sunday. In 2022 special services were held for Mothering Sunday, Easter, Harvest and Remembrance Day. At Christmas there was a very well supported Carol Service, followed by the Grand Draw and refreshments.
The church is also used for various fundraising events throughout the year, such as Coffee Mornings. A beautiful Flower Festival was held to celebrate the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022. The PCC is also involved in organising the village’s Summer Fete and Dog Show, and supports other events, such as the Snowdrop Festival at Gable House, which features a nationally important collection of snowdrop varieties.
