Swettenham is situated some five miles north-west of Congleton on the banks of the River Dane, which flows though the Parish in a delightful and unspoilt valley, breaking up the flat but well-wooded country lying to the north and south. To the east the plain rises gently to a background formed by the East Cheshire Hills.

St. Peter's Church serves the Parish of Swettenham. Our church is a beautiful listed building set in the Dane Valley.

We aim to serve the parish as a broad church, a musical church (with a new young choir), an active church, a church for all ages, a church where everyone is always welcome.

St. Peter's is part of the Diocese of Chester and the Church of England.

In 2006 St. Peter's became part of a Joint Benefice with St. Luke's Goostrey.
