cb    Welcome 

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 is open every day from 9.30am to 4pm (Sat to 3pm) and you are very welcome to come and look around, enjoy the quiet, spend some time in the prayer corner, or help yourself to a walk around guide. There are monthly magazines and prayer cards for sale at the back of the church and boards explaining some of our activities.

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.
