Welcome to Winchcombe
We hope you enjoy visiting our new website and if it is your first time, then a special welcome to you! Here you will find information about the wide ranging ministry in the Winchcombe Parish and the wider team of church communities with which we are linked.
St Peter’s is the Parish Church in the centre of Winchcombe which, along with the other churches in the Team, has served the local communities for many generations. Our focus is on helping people of all ages to encounter God, to grow in a relationship with Him and to be equipped to serve Him and thus serve the community in every area of our lives.
At St Peter’s, we are currently in an interregnum as our previous incumbent moved to pastures new at the beginning of February this year. The benefice of churches is, however, fully functional thanks to many committed members and to the offices of Revd Julia Hook, Team Vicar and Revd James Pickersgill, our curate and our local retired clergy. We are also very grateful for the ongoing support of the Archdeacon of Cheltenham, The Venerable Robert Springett, particularly whilst in the throes of appointing a new incumbent.
We aim in this website to enable you to obtain an overall impression of our Church Life and it’s diversity, including the People, Services, Organisations and Social Groups. We’d love to invite you to one of our services on a Sunday or to one of the other activities that run throughout the year. If there is anything you would like to ask, please just get in touch. We very much look forward to meeting you.
