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).

Across the road is St Peter’s Centre which is used by many community groups on a regular basis. The Parish Office is also located in the Centre. It provides services and support for all the Anglican churches in the Oadby-Glen Benefice.

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.

May God the Creator bless you.
May God the Son walk with you.
May God the Spirit lead your lives with love.  Amen
