St Peter & St Paul's is open daylight hours for mediation and prayer except on Mondays

Upton church was founded in 1250 and over the centuries has provided faith and solace for our small village with a population of never more than 500. The church is a grade One listed building and unique in having nine pinnacles on its tower earning it the title Nine Pins .

After the last war we achieved national recognition because of the discovery of the 17th century parish and churchwardens’ records which give a vivid account of village life in the English Civil War. A notable television programme was based on our records.

Today the church continues to hold a special place in our community, open every day and with church records readily available we welcome many visitors. Three weddings and three baptisms this summer filled the church but what we especially value is our congregation, ever ready to take part in services and enjoying new forms of worship; we are comfortable in our church and look forward to our future.

There is a  written a brochure detailing the history of our church and also an account of the development of the village.
Both available in church.
