St Peter’s Church

The historic and beautifully detailed church is an appealing venue for weddings and other special ceremonies, functions or meetings.

St Peter’s Church was built in the late 19th century and moved to become part of Founders Heritage Park in 1983. At that time the clock tower was reinstated having been removed in 1941 when it was deemed a safety hazard.

The church is filled with traditional furniture, including pew seating. The room can also be fitted with modern furniture or left empty for an exhibition. Tea and coffee can be delivered from the on-site café and bar.
