St. Peter's Church, Frimley Green Road, Frimley, GU16 7AQ get map
The building stands on the same site as a chapel dating from Tudor times and was built in 1826. The church was refurbished in 2011, with the opening out of the chancel, and a new moveable altar to make a more flexible area. The introduction of an audio visual desk, new floor levels to make it more accessible for the disabled and wheelchair users, glass doors at the main entrance and improved lighting have all resulted in a more modern building. These changes signify an emphasis on looking forwards, and have given the church an opportunity to better serve the locality.
We welcome participation of all, from the oldest to the youngest, and have many opportunities for learning and fellowship for members, aiming to bring to each person a greater awareness of God's love for them.
St. Peters has a tradition of music, with a choir, an organ and a music group all contributing to worship. In the clock tower is a carillon of bells, the only carillon in Surrey, that ring out each week. Inside the church are some very attractive stained glass windows which feature events in Jesus' life and parables that he told. On the upper level are prophets and patriarchs from the bible.
The church's position on the junction of Church Road and Frimley Green Road places it on one of the main routes in Frimley; beside it is the Church Hall, reached from Parsonage Way, with very good facilities and associated parking.
The church has an extensive churchyard, among those buried there are Admiral Sturdee, the painter John Frederick Lewis, the well-known American writer Bret Harte, and Dame Katharine Furse, Director of the Women's Royal Naval Service and expert skier. It is a peaceful area, planted mainly with conifers.
