The Church of St. Peter & St. Paul in Little Horkesley is a friendly and welcoming community of people, meeting in our beautiful Church building on a site which has been serving the Village since the 12th Century.
Our main service is at 11am each Sunday. It lasts about an hour, and is sometimes followed by refreshments.
Some services are traditional in format, and some quite informal, such as our Family Services and Festivals. But whether you pop in occasionally or become more involved, you'll get the same warm welcome.
Many people visit our Church building because of its age and beauty - and it's a lovely venue for weddings.
The Church is open to visitors every day as well as Sundays, and we look forward to welcoming you -
whether to worship with us, for private prayer or to enjoy our beautiful surroundings.
From October 2019, our Parish is in Vacancy (it used to be called Interregnum). That means we are awaiting the appointment of our next Vicar. In the meantime, we are supported by the Clergy and Lay Leaders from other Churches in the North Colchester Family of Churches.
