St. Peter’s, Ugborough

August 30, 2013


An impressive church which dominates the village. The interior is similarly impressive. The sign board only mentions Sunday services and that the Post Office is in the church two sessions a week. A good way to get local people to come in the doors.



Inside I found a guide book and some post cards for sale. There is a folder giving details of the war dead from the village and also one on a survey of the monuments here. A nice parish map is also displayed. There is a good children’s area. Some leaflets were around about The Three Rivers Mission Community. There was a nice collection of prayers to use, both generally, and for particular groupings in the parishes which make up this community.

There is a village website – and 10 people in the visitors book in the last 22 days.

The font here is bright red with a modern cover, also brightly painted.


The pulpit is white and there is another font in the prayer area. This has a prayer board and a laminated sheet, ‘To help you use five minutes in prayer’. This had some good suggestions on it. I hope it gets used.



The parish priest, Fr Harry Jevons  had produced a leaflet, ‘A Sure and Certain Hope’ which explains the Christian hope in the face of death. It is very good.

I rate St. Peter’s as good.
