Transforming St Peter's, Sudbury

St Peter's Church, Sudbury, Suffolk

St Peter’s is being developed into a vibrant and welcoming cultural centre for the people of Sudbury and the surrounding area.

This Grade I listed building has stood at the heart of community life in Sudbury, Suffolk since the 14th century. Its distinctive architecture and unusual features provide fascinating insights into the development of the town and its changing population over the years.

But the building is not only a prominent landmark, it is also Sudbury’s main venue for large community events. It is exceptionally well used for a whole range of activities, but with leaking roofs, inadequate kitchen/bar space, and lack of toilets, the long-term use of the building is uncertain. It is therefore in need of urgent repairs and new facilities to make it sustainable for the future.
