Pitton is an active and sociable village with a thriving school, a pub which serves food both at lunchtime and in the evening, a highly valued shop/post office which is open seven days a week, a village hall used for numerous activities including a play school, Pitton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School and, of course, St. Peter’s Church. There are many social events in the village throughout the year appealing to all ages. The various social and sporting clubs are a very popular part of village life and are pleased to welcome new members.

PathFinders is for children of all ages who are warmly encouraged to come along. On the third Sunday in the month there is a joint service with the Methodists which is led by a Methodist minister. We are truly ecumenical as we all worship together at both services. Coffee is served and newcomers are made most welcome.
Ours is a lively church with a good sized congregation. St. Peter’s is open every day for visitors or private prayer. During the week, Informal Prayer is held each Tuesday morning at 9.15 and we are always happy to accept requests for prayer. In addition, the lay-led Tuesday Group meets on alternate Tuesdays in term time and weekly in Advent and Lent. This group discusses matters of faith and seeks to mature our understanding or our spiritual journey.
