We are sorry that John, our local resident priest, is ill and at the time of writing the exact date of his return to work is not known. We wish him a full and speedy recovery. Our thanks go to Brian Leathers and Ray Owen, the other Clergy in the Weaver Benefice (and one or two other people) for their willingness to shoulder additional workload. Apologies from the Churches if anyone is inconvenienced by a change in Church arrangements.

St Peter’s Church

2013-02-04 12.57.42

 The church in Ellastone is a beautiful grade 2* listed building with an interesting history and stands proudly in the centre of the village.  In the spring the churchyard is a riot of colour from spring bulbs – snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils.

From April – September St Peter’s is open to all at weekends from 9.00 – 17.00 and is well worth a visit. The Church has a heritage exhibition and also the Calwich Chapel which has exhibits showing the links of the Church with the ancient Augustinian Priory of Calwich. Do pop in!
