Our Church of St Peter and St Paul


Saint Peter and St Paul.

For over a thousand years, our Parish Church, at the heart of Godalming, has been a centre of Christian worship, providing a place for the prayers of the community, both corporate and private. Here, we rejoice in new birth at the baptism of our children, we celebrate the joy of marriage and we commit loved ones to the eternal presence of God.

The building belongs to the whole community, both those who live and those who work in Godalming. The dramatic spire is a symbol of God's eternal presence and the beautiful architecture and craftsmanship seen in the windows, carvings and masonry all inspire reflection and a sense of belonging. The doors are kept open as much as possible to allow easy access for all people, whether for a moment of quiet prayer or to soak up the history and sense of continuity from its  ancient walls. Through hard work and dedication, our forebears made great sacrifices to ensure that this beautiful and historic building has endured for a millennium. It is now our privilege and responsibility to maintain this House of Prayer for this and future generations.
