St Peter's was consecrated in 1893 by Rt. Rev. Dr. Edward King, Bishop of Lincoln and ever since, people have gathered here to worship God and to be encouraged to live a Christian life in the community. It was designed by a famous Victorian architect, Hodgson Fowler, and was built because the old parish church of St Andrew, only seating 190, was too small. St Peter's became the parish church in 1915 and has strong links with the local community, and with the RAF.
The church has an interesting history with a selection of fine stained glass, both Victorian and modern, a fine Reredos behind the altar and a rood screen between nave and chancel commemorating soldiers from the first world War. A leaflet about the history and architecture is available at the back of the church.
