The Parish of Saint Peter and Saint Paul Fareham, Hampshire
St Peter & St Paul church is the original parish church of Fareham. Tradition has it that it was founded by St Birinus and his monks, who reputedly landed at Portchester and converted this part of England to Christianity, going up the Meon Valley and converting the pagan Meonwara!
Christians have worshipped in this church for over one thousand years. The original chancel now forms the beautiful Lady Chapel. Over the generations the building has been added to and restored. The most recent change was in the early 1970s when the church was reordered to meet modern liturgical trends.
There is a modern, well maintained Parish Hall built on the east end of the church, accessed via the original choir vestry.
The Church of St Francis Funtley is now closed for public worship.
