St Peter’s church is the oldest building in Oadby, standing since the 14th Century. It provides a focal point for the whole community. In normal times, the bells are rung regularly to call the faithful to prayer.
The church is currently being repointed and plastered inside to make the building much lighter and with better acoustics.
We expect to be able to worship in the church again by Easter 2021. Until then, we meet for worship and prayer in St Peter’s Centre (which is just across the Wigston Road from the church).

St Peter’s is a vibrant church with a warm sense of belonging within the Oadby community of South Leicester. These pages offer a glimpse of the vitality and depth of spiritual life and service to the people of Oadby and beyond.
