St Peter's Church Brackley


St Peter's is a Bible-teaching church in the heart of Brackley with a heart for Brackley.

We are part of the Church of England and we are passionate about reaching the whole of our parish with the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our aim is to love God,

love each other and love Brackley

...because of the love we've been shown.

Rev Rich Duncan, Vicar of St Peter's Brackley

I'm married to Kate, who is a strategy consultant for a charity called UCCF, and we have two boys under four. I grew up in Devon, initially trained to be a lawyer, then received my ministry training through the Cornhill Training Course in London, Wycliffe Hall in Oxford and Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia (remotely). I love walking our black Labrador and cheering on the Exeter Chiefs rugby team.

I’ve worked in children’s ministry for about five years and I’m so excited to be doing it here at St Peter’s. My job is all about helping children and their families know Jesus for themselves. In my spare time, you’ll usually find me meeting up with friends, drinking lots of tea, baking, or possibly continuing my covid project of learning the guitar.
