St Peter & St Paul Appledore
Dating from the early 13th century with 14th century additions, St Peter & St Paul Parish Church continues to be a focal point for Appledore.
Supported by churchgoers, the friends of the church and other local residents, St Peter & St Paul remains very much at the heart of the village, not only as a place of worship, but also as a conduit for charitable community services and a location for special events such as the annual Flower Festival.
The history of the building itself is well documented in a booklet originally written in 1986 by Sir John Winnifrith (a former Director General of the National Trust), it has been updated to include details of subsequent events and restoration and is available in the church.
Visitors to the church are most welcome and the church is open every day, it is a beautiful building, for quiet contemplation, or religious observation. While visiting, why not stock up with home made marmalade and chutney, available from ‘Produce in the Porch?’
Services at St Peter & St Paul change slightly each month. The normal pattern, to which all are welcome is:
1st Sunday Anglican/ Methodist All Age Worship
2nd Sunday Sung Holy Communion
3rd Sunday Joint All Age Worship alternating between Appledore and Stone Churches
4th Sunday Sung Holy Communion
(5th Sunday) A said service of Holy Communion from The Book of Common Prayer
There is also a service of Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer each Wednesday at 9.30am.
Refreshments are served after our services at 10.30am to enable people to have a chat.
