Summer Sunday Evening Services 2019

During July and August, evening services are held in St Peter's Chapel, at the place where the land meets the sea and the sky comes close. A place where the distance between heaven and earth is tissue thin.
All services start at 6.30 pm.

Come at any time and enjoy the deep peace of the running wave, the flowing air and the gentle earth. Come and worship at the oldest church in England, founded by St Cedd in 654. Why not bring a picnic and enjoy the peace and beauty of this ancient holy place?
