St. Peter’s Church has towered over Ashley Cross since 1833. Its seen Marriages and Christenings and Funerals and a continuous round of prayer and celebration. Its seen happy times and sad times and its 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 her

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.

“An Evening with Friends”

Our next ‘Friends’ event, “An Evening with Friends”  is focused on our beautiful stained glass windows. The evening begins with a talk on the windows by the Revd Canon Keith Hugo, who has been researching them for our new church guide book which will soon be published. They are splendid windows and Fr. Keith’s talk will be informative and uplifting. It will also be accompanied by cocktails and canapes!

After the talk we go off to La Dolce Vita, our nearby Italian restaurant for a meal together
