St Peter's Church is the Church of England parish church of Twineham, a village in the Mid Sussex District of West Sussex, England. The church, with St Barthomew's in Albourne and Christ Church in Sayers Common, serves the modern ecclesiastical parish of Albourne, Sayers Common and Twineham (ASCaT).
The church is Tudor, probably dating from the early 16th century. According to local tradition it was built in 1516, early in the reign of Henry VIII and before the English Reformation. The church is built of brick, consisting of a chancel, nave, south porch, and west tower, with a shingled oak spire. The church was sympathetically restored in 1894, when an organ-chamber was added on the north side of the chancel.
