St Peter's Church is north of Chipping Ongar. At the A414 Four Wantz roundabout follow the B184 north up the Fyfield Road for approximately 3/4 mile. As the road descends look for a left turn. This is Church Lane and is a bendy single track road so please drive with caution! If you are walking from Ongar follow the Fyfield Road from the Four Wantz roundabout for just under 1/2 a mile to Shelley Lodge. Turn left here and follow the concrete track and enter the churchyard via a gate on the right just before you reach Shelley Hall.
St. Peter’s is at present operating as a Chapel of Ease with the Bishop’s permission. We hold occasional services at St. Peter’s. Unfortunately, the church is located away from the centre of Shelley and with a worshipping congregation of only five, the PCC is actively exploring the possibility of closing St. Peter’s. However, we still have a very strong commitment in serving this part of the Parish. The church is normally open daily for private prayer and visitors.
