Great Yarmouth Saint Peter Church



Great Yarmouth Saint Peter Church, originally, square west tower, a clock, and 1 bell, nave with aisles and chancel, this church was built in 1833, of white brick. It possess a copy of Ruben's fine painting "Descent from the Cross"  Built in the 1830s as Saint Peter’s Church, the years have not been kind to the Grade II listed building which needs a host of critical repairs - especially to the tower where falling stones have threatened public safety. Locals post aluminum cans through the churches railings and treat the whole building badly. Now the Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Spyridon in Great Yarmouth, and under the help of many Greek people and English Heritage, and an infecticious person in its own Father Fotios Bithas. Father Fotios Bithas - the only permanent Greek orthodox priest in Norfolk and Suffolk - said around 200 families were attached to the church with Sunday services seeing around 120 people. Stonemasons have got stuck into phase one of an ambitious ten year programme likely to cost around £1m - and stretch its enthusiastic community who under English Heritage rules have to raise 20% of the cost. Saint Spyridon’s is a Georgian building which pre-dates the rows of the Victorian terraces that enclose it. It was built by J.J. Scoles, the man behind Saint Mary’s Church in Regent Road and Saint Mary’s Church in Southtown. I myself have travelled to Great Yarmouth and had a Greek meal in a restuarant there, the entertainment in a small restuarant was second to none. And once inside this church, the feeling was mutual. Passing over the keys of Saint Peter and entering the inside of this so beautiful church, had me in awe.
