St Peter’s holds services of worship each Sunday morning and is regularly used for baptisms, weddings and funerals. It is also used for school services and provides an essential meeting place to celebrate religious festivals such as Christmas and Easter. It also acts as a focal point for those wishing to remember the passing of loved ones and the sacrifice made by local residents in wartime, holding an annual Armistice Day service and act of remembrance at the cenotaph opposite the church.

Other activities that happen within the village are:

  • prayer visiting approximately three times per year. This culminates in prayers requested from either prayer cards or verbal requests when the prayer team call.
  • Clergy and Youth Worker carry out activities in the school.
  • Carol singing throughout the village on the run-up to Christmas.
  • Carol event in the Warton Arms Pub.

St Peter’s Churchyard  is recognised as a designated Commonwealth War Grave site, containing graves of members of the armed forces, a number of whom are remembered within the church.
