About this Building
This is the Church of St Peter and St Paul, located in Horndon on the Hill. The church was built in the MEDIEVAL (1066-1509) period.
During medieval times, almost everyone in England were Christians following the Roman Catholic religion. They believed in the Christian God and heaven and hell. The village church would have been the centre of the community. Every villager would have attended church services (which were in Latin!) and the priest would have been a very important and influential member of the community. The church and its churchyard would also have been used as a meeting place for local people. Villagers would have given a tithe, a tenth of the food they grew, to the Church too.
