Built in the 1860s as a chapel of ease, the Church of St. Peter is the largest building in Sidford and is one of the two churches in the parish of Sidbury with Sidford.  It is a typical Victorian brick building intended to be a church at the heart of the community.  The fellowship at St. Peter’s see this as being both their heritage and their vision. The worship reflects a wide range of spirituality and taste, following the Common Worship book.

The Hall, built during the 1970s, is used by the church and community for social and other purposes. It is available for hire - click for details. Hall closed from 15th May to 17th June for electrical rewiring work.
