St. Peter’s Church in Chesil, Winchester, previously named St. Peter upon Chesille without Eastgate, is a former Church of England parish church in Winchester, Hampshire. Today, it serves as the cherished home of the Chesil Theatre.

The church showcases a combination of architectural features dating back to the 12th century and subsequent periods. Its construction materials consist of flint and stone, while the belfry turret and roofs are adorned with tiles.

Following the conclusion of the Second World War, St. Peter’s Church ceased to be used for religious purposes and was deemed structurally unsound in 1960. Subsequently, the Chesil Theatre company took ownership of the building, preserving its heritage and repurposing it for theatrical performances.
