About us

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.

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.

You're welcome!

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. 

Our Vicar

The Parish is currently 'in Vacancy', and we've already begun preparations for the appointment of a new Priest. In the meantime, emails to vicar@wormingford.com will still reach us!
