There has been a church on this site in Walton-
Our patron saint is Saint Peter, the "rock" on which the Christian church is built. The favoured disciple to whom Christ gave the keys of Heaven, was a truly remarkable man -
We are fortunate to have this very old (late 12th century) and rare lead font, one of only 29 in the country. Over the centuries it has been at the joyful centre of many baptisms and the prayers and promises of loving parents and godparents.
The STAINED GLASS WINDOWS
We have many lovely and inspiring stained glass windows -
High in the tower and reached by a narrow staircase are three bells. Of the two that are inscribed the treble bell says, "William Eldridge made mee 1681" and the tenor bell says "Robertas: mot: me: facit: 1591".
The ELIZABETHAN CHALICE commissioned by Queen Elizabeth I in 1568 is on display at Guildford Cathedral and is returned to St Peters for the celebration of Holy Communion at Midnight Mass at Christmas, and on the morning of Easter Day.
We hope you will come to St Peter's to join us for worship, or simply to visit. Please say a prayer for all those people who have worshipped here, preached here, married here, been baptised here and laid to rest here.
Finally, a prayer for you to take away with you.
The Lord bless you and watch over you;
The Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord look kindly on you and give you peace.
