Friends of St Peter’s

St Peter’s Church has towered over Ashley Cross since 1833. It’s seen Marriages and Christenings and Funerals and a continuous round of prayer and celebration. It’s seen happy times and sad times and it’s been a place to mark important moments for literally thousands of Parkstone families, among them Lord and Lady Baden-Powell. They were married here and their first child was Baptised here.

Maybe you were too!

The “Friends of St Peter’s Church” exists to help  keep this marvellous Church standing so that it can continue to serve this community and thousands more families in years to come.

If you’d like to help to maintain this beautiful church you can do so by joining the “Friends of St Peter’s.
