St Peters History

In recognition of the need to provide additional seating capacity to serve the residential area north of the centre of the town, the Nottingham Diocese approved the building of a new Church on a site in Welby Lane in Melton Mowbray.  The building is a concrete-framed church typical of the 1960s and was designed by architects Thomas and Martin Wilson of Oakham.

The foundation stone was laid in 1962 and the preparation and foundations enthusiastically undertaken by a group of parishioners prior to the main building work with completion in 1964. The organ was transferred from St. John the Baptist to St. Peter’s.

In 2008 major alterations were undertaken due to the need for additional facilities and to develop the life of the community. A new Parish Centre was created and the church was extensively re-ordered while keeping much of its original character, in particular preserving the beautiful and unusual etched glass Stations of the Cross.

The Parish Centre continues was used not only for Parish functions but also by numerous local groups who enjoy the large hall and excellent catering facilities.
