St Peter’s Church has served the village of Hepworth for over a thousand years. There was a church here at the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086.

The present structure dates mainly from the 14th and 15th centuries.

Over the centuries it has been gradually enlarged and embellished. As we look at its solid walls and buttresses, its hefty medieval door and its soaring windows, we can sense the care and devotion that has gone into building and maintaining it over the generations.

It may not be one of the famous showpieces of East Anglia, but it has a solidity and peacefulness which speaks to us just as strongly.

Whether you visit this building frequently for its weekly services, or only occasionally for a wedding, a funeral, or perhaps a concert, we hope you will agree that such an ancient and beautiful building is an asset which deserves to be looked after.

We warmly invite you to become a Friend of St Peter’s and take your part in caring for this wonderful place.
