Be a Friend of St Peter’s – Pledge your support …

St Peter’s occupies a unique place in the heart of Sudbury and in the hearts of Sudburians, and beyond. There are many people who feel proud to be associated with this fine building and its wide-reaching cultural significance for the town. Such people form the body of the Friends of St Peter’s, and membership is open to all.

By enrolling as a Friend you will be making a significant contribution towards the future of St Peter’s. You can also learn about the building’s colourful history, keep informed about our diverse programme of events, and have the chance to contribute your ideas on the many exciting developments planned.

With the backing of a strong group of Friends, the management committee can continue to care for and adapt the building to maintain a venue that will go on to delight future generations. Your membership will stand as your pledge of support for this beautiful building and help to continue to maintain it as the important arts, culture and heritage asset to Sudbury and its neighbours.

We are currently working on expanding the benefits of membership, but currently include personal guided tours of the building, advance notice of special events, a membership card and a badge! Hooray!
