St Peter's, Foston

St Peter's church is at the heart of the village and dates back to the 11th century on its present site. The fabric is in good repair and a good oil heating system, along with a friendly atmosphere, ensure a warm welcome for all who visit.

The church is floodlit on Saturday and Sunday evenings and can be seen for several miles away.  You can also pay (£7.50) for the lights to be on to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries etc.

The tower contains 3 bells which can be chimed only. They are often used at weddings. The tower also sports a tractor weathervane to reflect our farming links.

The worship pattern is 2nd Sunday Evensong and 4th Sunday Holy Communion. When there is a 5th Sunday in the month the service is normally a Group Communion which is rotated between the 4 churches in the Group.

Foston PCC organise various social events each year, including Harvest Supper, Cheese & Wine Evening and Coffee Mornings. Church notelets and bookmarks are also produced internally for sale. Proceeds from a Foston History Book also go to church funds.

As part of our committment to sharing the love of Christ, various Church members are actively involved in local organisations. This ranges from being a Foundation Governer at Long Bennington Primary School, helping run Explorrer Scouts and being a member of the Village Hall Committee.
