St Peter’s, Shorwell

shorwell1Welcome to St Peter’s Shorwell which is open every day.

On the third Sunday of every month we have an informal gathering at Shorwell Parish Hall at 10.30am.  We start with breakfast and then have a short time of prayer, reflection and sing a couple of well known hymns.
