The building is managed day-to-day by its PCC – or Parochial Church Council. This a small team of volunteers who are usually lead by a Priest-in-Charge. At this time, our Benefice does not have a parish priest (a time called ‘Interregnum’) but we have the support of local retired clergy who help the PCC with services and pastoral care for its parishioners and wider church family.

Recent Government guidelines regarding opening of Churches for private prayer and also for regular worship, are subject to severe safeguarding directives. The Church of England have issued what is needed to be done in order to protect those visiting our churches especially the vulnerable and over 70s.
The Bishop of Leicester, Rt Revd Martyn Snow has also issued a letter to all parishes in the Leicester Diocese stating that the decision to open individual churches rest with the Incumbent (Clergy) or Area Dean where there is no Clergy in post.
Baptisms, weddings and funerals
St Peter’s continues to follow the Government Guidelines and where these services are concerned. We are currently in Tier 4.
