St Peter's Church
The Row
Raithby
LN11 9RR 
 
Raithby is found by turning left off the A16 when heading north.
This Church sits beautifully in a fold of the wolds, with fine approaches from public footpaths across the fields.
The Church is open daily.
 
Our patron St Peter was of course the figurehead of the early Church, having been described by Christ as 'the rock on which he would build his church'. His headstrong temperament saw him often err, only to also deny Christ on the way to his crucifixion.  However, he was forgiven by the risen Christ and went on to witness faithfully to his Lord, ultimately being crucified himself, but upside down, having deemed himself unworthy to die in the exact same manner as Christ.
 
Almighty God,
who inspired your apostle Saint Peter
to confess Jesus as Christ and Son of the living God:
build up your Church upon this rock,
that in unity and peace it may proclaim one truth
and follow one Lord, your Son our Saviour Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen 
 
St Peter Raithby
