St Peter and St Paul’s Church is a Christian community worshipping in the heart of the village of Blockley
in the beautiful North Cotswolds
We serve the people of Blockley and its surrounding villages and hamlets of Aston Magna, Dorn, Draycott,
Northwick Park and Paxford.
As a church, we are love to celebrate, we are inclusive, and our social and environmental responsibilities are important to us.
All are welcome to join us in exploring how we can live life in all its fullness.

It was lovely to welcome Jay Niblett, our curate, in both of our ZOOM services last Sunday. You can learn more about him through the video he has made which are posted on the Chipping Campden Church website. We will be getting to know Jay over the next few months, and it will be a pleasure to journey with him over his three year vicar-training!
This Sunday is Blockley’s patronal festival, and we will be remembering our Christian calling. Our order of service has changed so that it looks more like the beginning of our normal Sunday services. We will be using this in our digital services and from August in our fortnightly services in the church building. If you are not able to print off a copy of the service let me know and I will post one to you.

Sunday’s service will follow a new pattern which you can find here. This will form the liturgy of our service over the next few months, both in digital church and in the church buildings. The readings are especially for St Peter and St Paul and will be on the screen on Sunday.

I will be saying Daily
Prayer at 9.00am. Also I would recommend phone and tablet apps for daily
prayer like Examen

Some concern has been raised with me about the way that Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people have been treated in the villages. There is now a poster about this in the church notice board, and if you would like a copy please email me. If you would like to read some stories about living as BAME person in rural villages, I would encourage you to read some of the profoundly moving stories at https://whereareyoureallyfrom.co.uk. Many are from our own area of the country.
