St. Peter & St. Paul, Tring

June 7, 2015

St. Peter & St. Paul, Tring

St. Peter & St. Paul’s is situated in the middle of the small town of Tring. It is open each day and well worth visiting. There is a welcome notice outside

Inside, I found a prayer request box, a prayer leaflet, a welcome board and a range of leaflets about the church and what goes on here. There is a history guide to carry around on a visit and displays about the various clubs and groups that are associated with the church. ‘Saints and Pilgrims’ too – this seems to be almost universal in Herts churches. All this gives the impression of a lively place which is friendly and worth being a part of. There is a votive stand and whilst I was there a family were explaining to a young child why they were lighting a candle in memory of a loved one. One simple instance of why it is so important for a church to be open during the week. This place is a focus of their grief and a way of offering memories to God. If it wasn’t open what would they do?

The church website is at http://www.tringteamparish.org.uk but doesn’t give visitor information, although there is plenty of other useful stuff on it.

I rate St. Peter and St. Paul as very good for my purposes.
