My gr- gr- gr- grandparents were married in this church in 1844. Their names were Mary Soddrel and John D. Gibson. They came to the USA in 1845. They were both 22 years old when they made the trip. What a beautiful place to have a wedding and dedicate one's life to Jesus Christ.

Interesting although I didn't have enough time to read all, am looking for history of Radford ward particularly Hyson Green for a community survey relating to a Human Services degree I am currently undertaking - 1st year.

I am a born again believer and charismatic but with a gentle conservative evangelical background. The Lord bless your work.
I was just surfing the internet to look for a group that could support our Church building project and bumped into your site. Do pray for us for God's provision. Have a Merry Christmas and the Lord bless all members of your Church.

Just found your site while searching for information about Good King Wenceslas. You are now linked on three of my Scouting pages:
Thank you for your time and effort. Choir music (mp3) is quite good, however Real Audio links did not work (12/15). Still exploring your site -- so much there -- I actually have been to Nottingham back in 1967, I hope to return one day.

I am in the process of buying a which I might think was once in your church...There is a plaque that reads: In memory of Fredrick Ford (did he work there?) twice rectory of St Peters Chester...Also says something about the clock given to him by his wife and children..."1886" If you have any information could you please let me know...I would greatly appreciate it..

I'd just like to say that Southwell Minster is beautiful and ask how that bookcase is that Geoffrey Starmer (my grandpa) made because I helped to glue bits on.

I found this web-page very useful. I am using it to find out information for Religious Studies (RS). But one bad thing, no pictures are available.

St Peter's, Nottingham, UK - but looking in from the Library of Congress in Washington DC!
Just keeping in touch! The enquirer about the dragon in Lenton probably wants information about the black marble font (Norman) in Holy Trinity Church, Lenton - I'll look this up when I'm home next week

Ron Doubleday Sunday, October 22, 2000
Hi, I am doing my family tree, my family is from Southwell/Upton area. My great grandfather Percival Doubleday came to Halifax Nova Scotia around 1884 with the military and stayed. I am looking for his family and any info on them. I am real interested in who's this Doubleday family Vault is in St Peter's

Vicki Gentilman Thursday, October 12, 2000
Gainesville, Florida, USA
LOVE YOUR WEB SITE... I attend First Assembly of God in Gainesville, but we worship the same Lord! By the way, I am searching for a Medieval church in a town called Lenton - I was told it is in Nottinghamshire. It is supposed to have an engraving of a knight slaying a dragon (or Worme), and that is in tribute to an ancestor of mine. Anyone know anything about such a place? I would love to visit for myself but have medical problems that keep me home bound, so I Praise the Lord for the web!

Hello to Andrew Deuchar! Had a "brain wave" and found St Peter's site. Emily reports she had a wonderful visit with you -- finding her roots, I guess! Thanks so much for having her over. Wish it could have been me! Keep in touch -- and we'll watch your site to see what's happening in Nottingham.

Andrew and Sarah Price Monday, August 7, 2000
Coventry, UK
Very enjoyable visit. Refreshing to find it so up to date. Andrew is organist at Holy Trinity Church Coventry and together we run an unofficial web site for our church and choir

Sherry Titus Sunday, July 30, 2000

I was searching for information on 'confirmation' and found your site. The piece on confirmation is very interesting and I will share it with my confirmation class at Trinity Anglican Church in Digby, Nova Scotia.

Jon Mitchell Wednesday, July 12, 2000

Thanks very much for a wonderful, informative, well-organized web site. I intend to become a frequent virtual visitor until I can visit in person.

Sonia Dimmock Tuesday, July 4, 2000

Extremely interesting site, lovely photos of the Churches. Shared the prayers with a friend. Well done.

Robert Andrew Coutts Sunday, July 2, 2000
Wellington, New Zealand
I would be interested to know if you have pupil records going back to the mid 1800's. For a family tree that I am doing (on my wife's side) I would like to find out if you have a Roger Walter Hansard in the records. I also believe that there may have been a few more Hansards that went to the Bluecoat School. Any information at all would be most helpful. Thanking you in advance.

Theresa Walker-Ray Tuesday, June 27, 2000
Amherst, Massachusetts, USA
My husband and I are amazed at the sense of community that our family has with you. We all read your magazine regularly. My sister, Barbara Walker, noted the news of your Barbara Walker. Our four children bemoaned the loss of "If ye love me". They have suggested it to our All-Town choir. Today, we heard of the volcanic eruption near Reunion and sped me to the e-mail to see if Mike Leuty's Gigi and family are all well. We hope they are.

They are fine, thank you. The volcano on Réunion poses no danger to its inhabitants.

Richland, Michigan, USA
I've only been here for a few seconds. Your website is really intriguing, It look to be exactly what it should be. I'm a stained glass artist, and intend to go back now and check this website out at length.

Gwen Thompson Monday, June 5, 2000
I can't make out from this what exactly the connection is between St Peter's and Southwell Minster. Are they two separate places that sometimes share choir and services?

St Peter's is a parish church in the centre of Nottingham. Southwell Minster is the cathedral of our diocese, situated in a small market town in Nottinghamshire. Our choir is occasionally invited to sing in the Minster when their choir is absent.

Hugh Busher and Susanne Maddox Saturday, June 3, 2000
Planet Earth!!! (and Nottingham, UK)
I'm impressed at the quality of this site. The pictures help to give a feel of the place being real - and not just a cyber cafe of sorts. I look forward to seeing some of the poetry on this site, too, as well as some of the music which I understand is of quite a high standard - majoring in Messiaen from time to time, fortunately!!

Heather Young Thursday, June 1, 2000

I lived in Nott'm in the 1970s. I worked at Raleigh, I married a Nottinghamian and gave birth to another. We were married at Holy Trinity, Lenton and our son was christened there. I came back to visit in Oct. 1998, and had another look in your lovely church, and went to a service in Lenton. That had been a dying parish with mainly old people in the 1970s, (Mr Dunford was the vicar then) was now a church stuffed full of families. Someone in this or a higher authority is doing something right. I am a NZer and my son has dual nationality. He grew up to be a cathedral chorister here in Christchurch. Our church is the one church world wide and I am proud to be an Anglican and always feel at home in one of our churches.
God bless to all who minister in your church - be it clergy, organist, ladies who do flowers, volunteers who greet visitors or mums who feed and water choirboys. I love your web site. Take care - until I come back to Nottingham next time. Signed a Kiwi Nottinghamian (a brave one - I support Notts. County).

Is your church, (Old St Peter's) in Liverpool, where Andrew Morris and his wife Maudian (Magdalen) are buried?

David L. Tomb Wednesday, May 17, 2000
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Thank you for this very fine resource. I am preparing for a community hymn festival in Sun City, Arizona, and the materials you have on the site are very helpful. I would like to ask permission to reprint some of the material with the appropriate credits and web address if I may.

Nantege Tuesday, May 16, 2000
I would like to know if the church has a CD/tape of the hymns presented? If not, would you be kind enough to direct me to a website or telephone number where I may purchase hymns sung by the best choirs in the UK. Thank you and God Bless.

Mike Morris Monday, May 1, 2000
Sacred Heart Parish, Baguley, Manchester, UK
I think your site is terrific! I originally surfed in looking for a commentary on St John's Gospel. I found an excellent commentary but also very much more! I especially like the Christmas memories - I've always enjoyed G. K. Chesterton too. Many thanks, will be back soon.

Paul Le Couteur Monday, May 1, 2000
Nottingham, UK
Fascinating, lived here all my life and never knew that we had two boroughs within the town. We were looking for details about live within the castle circa 1450 but struggled to get any interesting data. Maybe you could help?

Hi Angie. Glen and I are staying with Nick for 10 days, We wish you all a happy and holy Easter. We hope to see you next year so make sure that the weather is warm. We all send our love and best wishes.

Ilkeston, Derbyshire, UK
I have recently moved to Ilkeston from Leeds and was interested to see which churches in the area were on the Internet. I am very impressed by your site. My fiançée and I are planning on attending your Taizé service this coming Sunday.

Nanette Smith ( Friday, April 7, 2000
What a great website! Could you tell me whether there is a place in England called St Alwyn's? My ancestor Thomas Packer was born there, and I don't know whether it is a place or a church. I would be pleased to receive any info which you might have. Thanks, Nanette.

Carola Warner Thursday, April 6, 2000

I visited your beautiful church last year with my mother-in-law, Desiree Warner - one of your parishioners. Best wishes to you all from New Zealand.

Greetings from Christ United Methodist Church, Fort Collins, Colorado. You've a lovely Web site, and from what I can see a good church building and congregation!

Ron Pearson Thursday, March 30, 2000
Darlington, County Durham, UK
Used to live in Arnold. Curiosity drew me to your site. Very exciting, especially the Real music and singing. Congratulations on a super website.

Geoff Colson Thursday, March 30, 2000
Canberra, Australia
I had a very early and unexpected contact with St Peter's. When I was six (1928) my father for some reason ran his motor-bike and sidecar, with me aboard, up the front steps. This cost me my two front teeth, and an abiding distrust of motor-bikes. I hope to revisit the scene at the end of the year. Congratulations on the quality of Claves Regni; it makes St. Paul's, Manuka's pew sheet look very thin.

The Rev. R. Raymond Moore Monday, March 27, 2000
Christ Episcopal Church, Big Stone Gap, Virginia, USA
A wonderful site. Your history is overpowering when I think of our 108 year old church building and the pride we take at its being on the National Historic Registry. It was fun to visit your lovely church home. Some day my wife and I will visit St Peter's in person. My only criticism is that I did not see pictures of individuals.

I was given a Bible with info. in it - St Peter’s Church, Tiverton, Devonshire, England - and the dates of birth and death of my great great grandfather and mother. I would like to locate this on a map so I can visit someday. Thank you for any help you might be able to provide me. You have a nice website!

Deborah Mason Wednesday, March 15, 2000
Lincoln, UK
I came across your magazine while looking for information on the church at Eakring. I was very impressed with both the quality of writing and with the obvious affection and understanding you have for your readers. It was a pleasure to read, and I've put it on my "favourites" list.

Katie Fahs Thursday, March 9, 2000
London, UK (via. Nottingham and USA)
Well, it is such a pleasure to see that St Peter's has such a wonderful web site. Well done! We are actually using it for research as our 8-year old Ginny has to do a project on a place she has lived, and Nottingham won out over Cincinnati Ohio and London! We are currently printing out the history pages. We miss St Peters a great deal -- after many attempts, we have yet to find a real church home here in London. Best to Lesley, Eileen, Lynn Miles and Mark and Christine Stevens. Again, congrats on such a wonderful web site!!!

Frances Stockett Drake ("Robin") Friday, March 3, 2000
St Anne's Episcopal Church, Herndon, Virginia, USA
Thanks for a great site! As a chorister from way back and somewhat of a liturgist now, I enjoyed both the RealPlayer files of music I have sung, and the extensive articles.

Cliff McCawley Tuesday, February 29, 2000
Gloucester, Ottawa, Canada
I discovered this site through the web-site of St Matthew's Church in Ottawa (Andrew Teague was a previous director of music). Claves Regni is a wonderful site: interesting, entertaining, and so well designed and managed. Thank you, and keep on "publishing".

Dawn Gilmore Wednesday, February 23, 2000

I am the director of vocal music at Village Christian High School and am planning a choir tour for Jun 12-27. Would love to be able to sing in your church. Is this a possibility? Are there any requirements?

Grady Lacy Monday, February 21, 2000
Valdosta, Georgia, USA
I've had the pleasure of meeting and talking with your new bishop several times here in Valdosta, GA. (His sister and I are fellow parishioners at Christ Episcopal Church.) I believe you to be very fortunate to have had him sent to you. Also a lovely web page.

Jan Catalogna Tuesday, February 15, 2000
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
What a wonderful site! I have bookmarked it as a "favorite" place and will return monthly. Thank you for all your hard work. My 6X great grandparents Richard Burton and Elizabeth Wetherill of Lambley were married at St Peter's in 1717. I'll be visiting Nottingham first weekend in April - can't wait!

Susan Gore Gardner Thursday, February 10, 2000

This is delightful, finding your web page after having visited your gorgeous church in the spring of 1998! It was very soul-satisfying to stand where so many have worshipped our Lord for so many years! As an artist, the interior was especially fascinating to me. Please visit my web page sometime and you can see a few of the English landscapes I created as a result of my visit:
I hope to visit you again some day!

Ascension and St Agnes, Washington, D.C., USA
I found your website while trying to find the date for Candlemas in the Christian sense. I discovered an excellent history and interpretation of Candlemas, Lent, and Shrove Tuesday. Then I read about your medieval church. How exciting to worship in such a historic structure. I have bookmarked your website so that I may continue to learn about the history of church holidays. Thank you!

Joni Kalós Thursday, January 6, 2000

This brings back many precious memories of Nottingham. Your web page is wonderful! Thank you webmaster for a job well done! We used to live in Nottingham. I wish to contact Rev. Lockhard and his wife of St Margarets Church at Aspley. If anyone knows Ray & Gillian Lockhard would you kindly pass my e-mail address on to them. Sincere thanks

You are probably aware that "The Church's One Foundation" is part of a book written in 1866 by Samuel Stone titled Lyra Fidelium: Twelve Hymns on the Twelve Articles of the Apostle's Creed. I have made the entire work available on our church web site. Feel free to check it out and pass that info along to others who may be interested.

Melissa & Jessica Evans Sunday, December 5, 1999
Knoxville, Tennessee, USA
I recently was surfing the web to find the Lyrics to a beautiful Christmas hymn "In the Bleak Mid-Winter". This was one of the songs she will perform with fellow band students at her high school here for the Christmas Concert. I appreciated so much your information available for us. She wanted so much to read the lyrics and was very happy to find them at last!

Michelle Sunday, December 5, 1999
I'm engaged in dialogue with an email pal about poetry and we're discussing Betjeman's Harvest Hymn. I couldn't remember who wrote We Plough the fields and Scatter, so visited your site, via Ask Jeeves Search Engine. The site is lovely and a joy to visit. Well done to all concerned.

I enjoyed listening to your choir selections. You are welcome to visit my links site - hundreds of links - Christian, practical, trade and international - under 40 topics [A-Z] designed to help Christians and challenge spiritual seekers.

I am currently studing at Nottingham University and am undertaking a project on renovation and the financing of renovation. Therefore I wondered if you had the time to e-mail me on churches that are now unoccupied and no longer in use in the Nottinghamshire area. I would be most grateful as it would be of some help to me with my studies.

Hello; I was surfing and came across your church web site. If it is not out of order, I would like to request some prayer intentions. I am requesting prayer for financial stability, so that I may pay my debts and taxes. I am also requesting prayer for help in finding a part-time job, preferably one I can do at home on the computer. Perhaps most important, I request prayer that I may come to know God again and have faith in Him.

Rev. Phillip Ayers Friday, November 5, 1999
Portland, Oregon, USA
What fun cyberspace is! Good to get your website via the Church Times (online). I used to subscribe, but ran out of money! I'm an incurable Anglophile and have been in England four times: 1979, 1981 (a sabbatical-leave from my then-parish, doing an exchange in Shropshire with my family); 1984 (Iona and Scotland, mainly); 1997 (partly to look into working in the Church of England, if it would be "in the cards." It wasn't!) Still I love things English and your parish looks like a live one to me. Thanks for making it known. God bless!

Eileen Foster Friday, November 5, 1999
Penticton, Canada
I receive St Peter's Magazine monthly but still enjoy your on-line link. As Parish Secretary for several years until emigrating in 1990 I find the web site a great link with home and St Peter's.

Dominic and Marie-Claire Tuesday, November 2, 1999
Vancouver, Canada
Greetings from Canada. After a very hectic summer working and rushing around the country seeing family and friends we have finally arrived in Vancouver Canada. We are slowly beginning to explore the local Anglican churches which appear to reflect the diversity of worship and faith that you come to expect from the Anglican Communion. When the rest of our belongings arrive next month we will have something permanent to remind us of St Peters, a church bench. Which Dominic always found to be an unexpected cure for insomnia, only when that Lesley Morley was preaching of course. :-)
Hope the search for the new rector is progressing... Love and Prayers

Erika Baker Sunday, October 31, 1999
Ightham, Kent, UK
I stumbled across your webpage by accident and have spent a wonderful 40 minutes here. I have a friend whose baby died this year and whose father in law was buried 3 days ago - and I found just the right prayer for her on your site. THANK YOU!
I've read Eileen McLean's many contributions and am very impressed! I will certainly direct friends to this site. God bless.

So nice to find this site. The Church is stunningly beautiful. Wish I had visited when in Nottingham in April '99. My great-grandmother Julia Garratt was christened at St Peter's 29 Sept,1867. I'd love to have a copy of the record!

I know Andrew Teague from his days in Ottawa. I was at St Peter's Brockville, Ontario. Please pass on my greetings.

Vince Conklin Monday, September 13, 1999
Richmond, Virginia, USA
Thank you for a very enjoyable page. My ancestors, the original Conklins to come to the US were John and Ananias Conklin. Both men were glass makers, lived in Nottingham c. 1635-1640, were married in St Peter's Church, and probably worked at Wollaton. I hope to visit Nottingham this year to search local history books and documents for detailed information on their lives.

Rachel Mason Saturday, August 28, 1999

Very good web site... I'm trying to persuade our vicar to take advantage of the Age of Technology. So far, we've got a virtual address book of church members (St Andrews, Poolbrook).

Julie Hales Wednesday, August 18, 1999
Terrace, British Columbia, Canada
I am enjoying your web site. Your articles, services and especially the audio music. Nottingham is my birth place and Terrace is where I learn about the Anglican church. It is comforting to know that where ever people live we are united by our belief in Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Paul Mottershead (Christ Church, Harrogate) has a link to your site as something to which he wishes to aspire. I couldn't resist a peep, and YES, it's a splendid site. Well done. I'm trying to build a site for St Mary's and St Nicolas' churches in Prestbury, Cheltenham and see I have a long way to go. I hope you don't mind but I will place your site in my soon-to-be-created page of links.

John & Shirley Kember Friday, July 30, 1999

Katharine Boren Wednesday, July 28, 1999
Lafayette, California, USA
I very much enjoyed your website. In fact, I sent the address to my father who will undoubtedly listen to each of your music selections. The reason I found your website is that I was searching for Nottingham plus photos due to the fact that our new neighbor's parents are visiting from Nottingham. I had no idea it was such a beautiful city. I learned a lot of the history of the area. Thank you for sharing so much. If I lived there, I would certainly be at each coffee concert on Saturday mornings.

Richard Messingham Tuesday, June 29, 1999
Egham Surrey and Aberystwyth, Mid-Wales, UK
I am fascinated by this Church. I myself am a Evangelical Anglican, who finds understanding St Peter's a little difficult. I see you have a liberal outlook, but then some of the activities you do seem almost to be evangelical such as healing and outreach/mission. I would be further delighted if you could give me more information as to the whole Theological standing of St Peter's.

This comment has provoked some discussion among the staff at St Peter's, who point out that the Anglican Church bases its belief on Scripture, Tradition and Reason. While the Catholic branch emphasises Tradition and the Evangelical branch emphasises Scripture, we would like to think that the Liberal branch emphasises Reason. Of course, this is not to say that Evangelicals are unreasonable or that Liberals don't read the scriptures; it is just a difference in emphasis.

Steve Hayward Monday, June 28, 1999

I am an old Nottingham boy, living in the south of France. Your page has given me great pleasure as I was once a choir boy in Nottingham, a voice like an angel, but a little devil! I was educated at Henry Mellish in Bulwell and am sad to see how that school has gone down. I have travelled a large part of the world and learnt compassion for all people. Keep your good work up.

I am doing research on my family history, so far all the Fawcett family were baptised or christened in St Peter's Church.

Delighted with your page, especially the music and audio display of your choir and organ. I am an Anglican and invite you to visit my home page where I maintain a daily lectionary using the "New American Bible." The URL is I shall return often to your page for more of your music. Thank you for a pleasant visit.

What a great web site! I used to sing in a cathedral choir in London and greatly miss the Matins and Evensong which we sang every Sunday. It's great to read up on what your Choir is doing!

From St.Petersburg Choir Community. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are a St.Petersburg choir ( vocal ensemble ) and visit this autumn the UK.

I have just learned that I will be studying at Nottingham Trent next spring through Linfield College in Oregon. As a young member of the Episcopal Church, I have begun to look into churches to attend while I am in Nottingham and came across your marvellous site. I look forward to visiting and worshipping with you some time next spring!

What a great pleasure it is to visit your site on the first of every month and find without fail the intelligent, thoughtful and inspiring words of St Peter's clergy and community. It is always a particular treat for the mind and soul to read Eileen McLean's essays and sermons. Thank you all.

What a wonderful website! I co-host an interfaith discussion board elsewhere on the Net, and I frequently refer our readership to St Peter's. P.S. I especially enjoy the audio clips of sacred music. :-)

What a wonderful website!!! I have found the articles refreshing, the format easy, and as a chorister, the music superb. This a great resource for people all over the world and I hope to draw inspiration from your efforts as our parish works on its site.

How wonderful to see this tour on line. I was born in Basford, raised and married in Gedling and spent many Thursday nights ringing the tower bells at St Peters. One of the windows was given in memory of my great uncle Wilfred Whittington in 1978, so I have a lot of memories there. It's really great to know I have a spiritual contact on the Web. Thanks.

We were amazed at the magnificent achievement of John Lord. 60 years is tremendous and a target for any young member. Congratulations John.

Exquisite site! Heard of you from Anglicans Online. Worked on my May newsletter article while listening to Stanford and Tallis. My theme for the article is being in two places at once, and I certainly experienced that while hearing your choir. Thanks to all of you who make this gift possible. A joyous Eastertide to you.

Your site was featured at Anglicans Online this week so here I sit writing my theological reflections for the week listening to your lovely choir. The richness of the net never ceases to amaze me. Thank you for your gift of music and for providing such a wonderful presence for the church on-line.

This is a very well put together site. The Admin ministry team which I lead @ Holy Trinity, Williamstown is looking at putting a web page together. This is a real inspiration!

I very much enjoyed the history behind the hymns. As a Christian in the US, our churches are just beginning to rediscover the reverent beauty of the older hymns and their doctrinal purity in lifting our focus from these worldly troubles to our gracious Lord. Thank you and God bless you all.

This is the only way I can see my brother, and I also find very interesting the history of Nottingham and the caves.

Thanks for the information on Hymn tune "Hyfrydol" from your website. It is being forwarded to a Japanese friend who is recording the tune on Handbells for a CD.
