Welcome to

 ST peter & st paul



A faithful Christian presence

at the heart of our beautiful village


Welcome to the Church of St. Peter & St. Paul, Little Horkesley, a friendly and welcoming community of people meeting in our beautiful Church building, on a site which has been serving Little Horkesley since the 12th Century.

Whether you're visiting us to find out about service times, Weddings, Christenings, what we believe or how to visit us in person, we hope you discover all you need.


We look forward to meeting you, and may the Lord bless you as you search.


Here in Little Horkesley, we recognise that these are uncertain and challenging times for everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We pray for those sick with the virus; for the doctors, nurses, health workers and other care givers, and all who support them in their work; and for those who are seeking ways to combat the spread of the virus. We pray too for those impacted in other ways: bereaved; worried about loved ones; frightened and alone at home; or anxious about their jobs and businesses; and for the most vulnerable in our communities and those who care for them.

Under Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines we have re-commenced some services.

See 'SERVICES' in the main menu.
