The Saxon church of St Peter has been serving the parish of Stanton Lacy since the early 11th century, and there was probably a church on the site for 300 years before that. It is one of the few churches mentioned in the Domesday Book.

A beautifully proportioned cruciform church, its Saxon origins are still visible in the stonework in the west and north walls and part of the north transept, with its thin pilaster strips. The chancel is mainly c13th with the tower and south transept built a century later. Notable features are c14th tomb recesses, one allegedly for Edmund de Mortimer and c17th chest. Victorian developments include the windows, altar and reredos of Caen stone with beautiful painted panels. It is a Grade 1 Listed Building.

It is one of 6 churches that form the Bromfield Benefice within the Ludlow Deanery. We hold services on 4 Sundays of every month, and jointly with the benefice on the 5th Sunday. 

We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs.
