Welcome to St Peter's Church, Holton
Welcome to St Peter’s Holton. We’re a small church, about 25 people at most Sunday services, but a very welcoming and caring church; and we’re warm in winter too, with new heaters.
As well as Sunday services we have Morning Prayers, a quieter said service, at 9am on Fridays, attended by a handful of people.
The following archival volumes are kept in the church safe and can be consulted by appointment:
Baptisms: 5 May 1907 to 19 Nov.2006; 10 Dec.2006 to date
Marriages: 27 Oct. 1979 to date
Burials: 10 Jany 1928 to date
Annual Vestry Meeting 13 April 1914 to Annual Parochial Church Meeting 17 May 1988
Older volumes can be consulted at the Country Record Offices at Ipswich and Lowestoft.
Searches of the Registers can be carried out for the standard national fee of £19.00 for the first hour.
