St. Peter's Aldwincle in Snow, Easter 2008

With a population of 350 Aldwincle is the place where the Rectory is situated, and in that sense provides a central base and focus for the work in the other parishes of this benefice. The population is mixed, though there is a high proportion of retired people, and several of those in employment commute to work, in some cases as far away as London or Birmingham. In other words, there is comparatively little local employment, though there is a garage and a village shop, as well as a couple of farms.  The vast majority of the houses are owner occupied.



There is a voluntary aided primary school in the parish with a current roll of 150, and where the Rector conducts assemblies. There is a village hall (see parish council website www.aldwincleparishcouncil.org.uk) which is well used, and has good resources. There is a Baptist church in the village: There is also a second Anglican church building (dedicated to All Saints), though this was declared redundant several years ago, and is in the care of the Churches' Conservation Trust.

The parish church, dedicated to St Peter, is an attractive and well-maintained building. There are two Sunday services each month,  alternately a Eucharist and Morning Prayer. There is a mid-morning Eucharist once a month.
