Ropley CofE Primary School has long been associated with St Peter's Church and used to regularly visit the church for worship. We welcome Rev Clare Welham every week who leads our whole school worship on a Friday. She is also a Governor at our school.
Sadly, on the morning of Thursday 19th June 2014, the 800 year old St Peter’s Church was almost completely destroyed in a catastrophic fire. The devastation was extensive, almost nothing of the interior or roof has survived – even the contents of the church safe were exposed to such heat that only fragments of the register survived.
A website has been set up to become the focus for information and fundraising and also to collect photographs that act as an historical record of the church “pre-fire”. A complimentary (or “sister”) website – StPetersRopley.org.uk will focus on the ongoing Christian worship in Ropley, with details of services, ministry and all the “normal” functions of an Anglican church community.
