We use the ‘Common Worship’ red book for our services. St Peter’s is one of the four churches forming the Benefice of the Langtons and Shangton in the Diocese of Leicester.The church serves three villages in its parish, East Langton, West Langton and Church Langton village itself.

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.
