Welcome from the Rector

Welcome to St Peter’s, Tiverton – part of the Church of England in Devon. Christian prayer and worship have been offered at St Peter’s since 1073,  probably longer.  We look forward to welcoming you to the church very soon. In the meantime, I hope that you will enjoy exploring our website and discovering some of the things that make St Peter’s a unique and much loved part of life in Tiverton.

Our apologies to all those who tried to join us last Sunday but were unable to get through. We’re not sure how many had trouble, but we’ve heard from some of you and we guess there were probably more who were affected in this way.
We have contacted the company which provides the service to see what can be done to improve matters. We are also investigating possible alternatives. If there are any changes to the way you access our conference call next Sunday we will of course make sure you know what they are before next Sunday.
Please don’t give up! We had a really good service this morning with those of you who were able to get through. We’ll do our best to make it even better for next week.
