Celtic Blessing

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. The rain fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand. AMEN

St Peter and St Paul’s is the Parish Church of Chaldon and is part of the Caterham Team Ministry. We strive to be a welcoming, open, inclusive and friendly community church, serving the pastoral and spiritual needs of all the people of Chaldon.

We are in the liberal, broad church tradition of the Church of England and we support and encourage the ministry of all. You are very welcome.

St Peter and St Paul’s, Chaldon is internationally renowned for the twelfth-century doom mural on the west wall of the church and the church is mentioned in the Doomsday book.

Church is currently closed. - Visitors are very welcome and the church is open daily from 10am to 3pm during the winter and 10am to 4pm during the summer. Due to circumstances out of our control sometimes church open times may differ, if you are making a special visit please check before visiting.

Visitors must note that St Peter and St Paul’s Church is an ancient church with a stone floor. Please be aware as you are walking around inside the building that some of this flooring is uneven.

Access to the church at any time other than at a service involves 2 sets of 3/2 stone steps without handrails. If disabled access is required please contact the Parish Administrator to organise access.

Sunday Teas Currently CANCELLED due to Coronavirus but church will remain open

Our Vision

We believe that all people are created in the image of God, and that all are called by God into a loving, dynamic and transformative relationship with him, through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, his Son and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

On Sundays we come together to receive Holy Communion, to be challenged and encouraged by God's word and to receive strength and support from God and from one another so that we can go back into the world ready to live our daily lives more openly and lovingly, sharing the good news of Christ in our words and through our lives, serving God and our neighbours in this part of Surrey.

We aim to be an inclusive church welcoming everyone, whatever their age, background, sexuality or relationship status and regardless of how much or how little faith they may have. Honest doubters and people with questions are positively welcomed!

Bishop Christopher wrote in his Pastoral Letter May 6th

There should be careful planning and proper consideration given to all aspects of returning to the church building. Please do not rush things or abandon existing plans for streaming etc as it is important to continue to offer pastoral care and support to the online communities which have been growing. I know, for example, that the Cathedral is likely to want to plan for this to happen from Ascension Day. I am not necessarily expecting uniformity of practice in this matter; but please know of my confidence in the decisions you will want to make in consultation with your partners in the Gospel. Like everyone else, we are having to live with uncertainty, and we do not know for certain when or how we will return to more familiar patterns of worship. We may have to live with different rules of engagement for a long time to come which will shape daily life, including church life, profoundly. This will work for good if we take hold intentionally of some of the new ways that the pandemic has led us to explore’
