St Peter’s Stonnall is a very friendly Church of England church and we enjoy welcoming new people of all ages.
Our church building is on Church Road, at the top of a hill just south of the village. Most members are very actively involved in many Stonnall village activities and organisations. We are also delighted that we work in active partnership with our local Stonnall C of E Primary school (St Peter’s), which achieved Outstanding Grade in its 2012 SIAS Inspection and has been awarded “Beacon School status. Stonnall won the Staffordshire Village of the Year compettion in 2008 for its quality of community life.
Services are held almost every Sunday at St Peter’s church, with the main service normally at 10h45. We hold special evening services from time to time, such as Ash Wednesday and Lessons and Carols. Our popular, new “Sunday Special” activity afternoons for children and families are held on the 3rd Sunday of most months at 4 pm . They take place in the Youth & Community Hut (next to the school on Main Street) which is proving to be a very appropriate venue. Church members run a varied programme of enjoyable social events throughout the year.
The Friends of St Peter’s Church Stonnall association was established in 2008, which is open to all. It has now been granted independent charitable status with HMRC, so it can also receive Gift Aid.. English Heritage have given our modest brick and sandstone church building Grade II listed status.
St Peter’s enjoys a close relationship with the neighbouring parish of St John’s, Shenstone, with whom we share a vicar – Liz Chamberlain. Some joint services are held, especially after Christmas and Easter, and a joint church away weekend every two years.
