St Peter the Fisherman, Craster

You will always receive a warm and friendly welcome at St Peter’s. This small church has lots of historical and social significance, plenty of stories to tell and a beautiful building to visit! Set within the former fishing and quarrying village, this gem of a church helps to tell the story of this charming place. Our worshipping life offers variety within the rich Anglican tradition; meeting three Sundays a month we enjoy Holy Communion and services taken from the Book of Common Prayer. We also share our worshipping life with the Parish church of Holy Trinity Embleton. We would love to welcome you to one of our services and get to know you if you are a regular visitor or local resident.

The church and garden space is cared for by neighbours and members of the church community. We would love you to visit the church and use the space for prayer, reflection and refuge from the weather! Of particular interest inside the building is the 1998 window celebrating the wildlife and early Christian heritage of the area, in memory of Shaftoe Craster and the last window designed by Leonard Evetts. The church is accessible to anybody who would like to look inside, keys are available during the day and can be collected from the The Gallery next to the Jolly Fisherman.


As part of our recent sustainability survey we have identified areas we might explore that will allow for a wider and more diverse use of our church building, including ‘champing’ (church-camping). We want to improve the way we share information such as our service times and other events and activities we might organise. Finally, being in a village with such a rich heritage we’d love to explore how we can share in collecting, presenting and sharing stories of residents past and present, particularly histories of the former fishing, quarrying and farming families in the area.
