St Peter’s Church, Marefair, Northampton
The Friends of St Peter’s is a society dedicated to the preservation and promotion of an early 12th century church of outstanding beauty and great historical significance. Since 1998, St Peter’s has been in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust, who have restored the church so that its architecture, decorations and furnishings can now be fully appreciated.
St Peter’s is now used for concerts and for educational and social events and for occasional church services. As well as being a link with the past, St Peter’s is a unique community asset for today.
The Friends was formed in 1995, just before St Peter’s ceased to be an Anglican parish church, so that there should be a local organisation devoted to its care, to promote wider knowledge and research, and to encourage greater social use of the church. Since 1998, St Peter’s church has been included in the parish of All Saints with St Katharine & St Peter in Northampton.
