St Peters - The building

St Peters is Grade II listed building. It stands alone in the village as a building of outstanding historic, architectural and archaeological interest in the National context. St Peters is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and contained within a conservation area. These are included in the new South Downs National Park which is one of the largest in the UK. The present church as it stands is believed to be the oldest building in the parish of Liss (including Lyss Place). Parts of it date back to the 13th century although it was built on the site of a still older church.

The full history may be viewed on the history page.

St Peters church was bought by the Liss congregation of the International Presbyterian Church in 2008. And we meet there Sunday by Sunday and use the building for events such as arts festivals and concerts (see events). Map to get there

The building is not open all the time but we will glady open it upon request - to book a visit

The church building is in need of some repair and restoration. The St Peters Trust - a separate charity - has been set up to look after the church, to restore and to renovate it. The trust includes members of both the church and the local community. Click here to see the Trust Page and see how you can help

The first-phase of the restoration has been completed and we are back worshipping in our lovely building
