In 1971 St Peter's Church was closed for public worship.
On 29th May 1976 ownership of the building passed to the
Churches Conservation Trust which cares for the building and has spent many thousands of pounds in doing so.
In the same year the Friends of St Peter's, Sudbury was formed with the aim of keeping the building open, in good order and enabling its use for the benefit of the community. The Friends of St Peter's is registered as a Charity, No. 271090.

The Regeneration Project at St Peter's
We believe that St Peter's is starting to look a little tired and we are seeking to ensure that it remains, for the future, at the heart of our town. This will involve many repairs to the fabric of the building, including major work on the roof and clerestory; but it will also affect some changes within the building including installation of a mezzanine gallery, toilets, an improved food serving area and an improved interpretation centre.
Our plans are at an early stage at present. Your input would be welcome.
