ST PETER'S CHURCH
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.

St Peter's will be open at limited times for individual prayer. Some services are also planned - for details, see CHURCH SERVICES below.
