Suspension of services:


Services in church did resume on 6 December 2020, but due to the current increased risk of infection they are currently suspended (9 Jan 2021). The few active members that support the church being open are either in the vulnerable group or have recently been isolating.  


Information about Zoom services are at the bottom of this page.


[  Aside: The following notes will be left in place for when we can hopefully resume services.


Services resumed at St Peter’s Dumbleton on Sunday 6 December. We will continue to exercise the Government’s mandatory social distancing and other measures, including the mandatory wearing of face coverings (except for those exempt).


Services are normally on the first and third Sunday of each month at 10.30 am. Please see our Services and Events web page for details.

If you intend to attend a service please send an email to or ring 01386 882049 beforehand, as the number of people that we can accommodate is severely restricted because of social distancing. More details, including what to do and expect when attending a service, can be read by clicking the link below:

Resumption of services at St Peter’s Dumbleton

Please note that, as the church is in a Tier 4 area, attendees must not socialise with people from outside their household or support bubble. Please take account of the government guidance for travel between different areas.

Risk assessments related to use of the church building:

The risk assessment for when the church re-opened for services in December can be read by clicking this link:

Risk Assessment for Opening The Church Building to the Public

Private Prayer:


St Peter’s Parochial Church Council (PCC) has given careful consideration to the government announcement that places of worship may now open to members of the public for private prayer.

To open our church requires the PCC, and others responsible for maintenance, including cleaners, to ensure the safety and well being of any visitor. In these difficult times the responsibilities are far more onerous. Some members of our PCC, and many others that support them, fall within the “vulnerable” group of persons as defined in the Covid19 guidelines. In the circumstances, it has been decided that for the moment St Peter’s will not be left open for private prayer. If you do wish to visit the church for private prayer, however, please send an email to or ring 01386 882049, and we will be pleased to do our best to accommodate a visit.
