Rous Lench Church
St Peter's is an unusually designed church (see photographs elsewhere on the website to see what I mean) and has two pulpits. There are no pews in the church which offers the advantage of the space being flexibly used. The congregation reflects the local community and are a group of believers who are keen to involve others in their journey with Christ.
There is a vibrant family service run by a local team that meets monthly and involves the young folk in imaginative ways in worship and reflection.
History of Rous Lench Church
Sundays with the following pattern:
First Sunday: 8.30 am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion
Second Sunday: 9.30 am Celtic Morning Worship
Third Sunday: 10.30 am Family Service

Does the worship leader do it all?
Tries not to. There is a rota and the family service team are very good at involving lots of people in the services.
It is easy to enter the church as there are no steps into the building and a smooth tarmac path up to the door. Inside there are a number of steps to the altar and chancel area. There is no PA or loop system installed.
Toilets are yet to be installed, but for large groups we have access to the toilets in the nearby village hall. Kind neighbours have been known to help out in emergency.
Seating Capacity: 130
In the village along the main road and around the Green. There isn't usually a problem except at the largest functions, when one must park along the road a little further from the church. The main road running through the village is best as some of the side roads are narrow.
