Our Church

Church services, its history, and Caistor town

Welcome to the website of the church of St. Peter & St. Paul, a place of worship in the town Caistor, Lincolnshire.

Our church has undergone significant re-building work which was completed in October 2018.
This building is not the first church which has stood on this site.  It is suggested that Saint Paulinus established a church here in the early part of the seventh century.Certainly, there has been a place of worship here since Saxon times and the lower part of the tower is perhaps Saxon, dating from around 1050 AD. This may have been the main porch of an aisle-less church.

The tower, as it stands today, displays works of three architectural periods. Its base is early Norman (1066-1189) but with indications of two previous arches which may have been Saxon. Its second stage is Early English (1189-1280) and the top stage with the decorated pinnacles and battlements are Perpendicular style (1377-1547).

We are part of the Caistor Group of parishes, which includes the parishes of All Saints, Grasby; St. Nicholas, Searby cum Owmby; St. Nicholas, Cuxwold; St. Mary Magdalene, Rothwell, St Nicholas, Cabourne and Holy Trinty, Swallow.

We are part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Lincoln.

You can find more about our life and our history as well as an interactive virtual tour of the church by visiting us on this website.
However we hope you will be able to visit us in person to look to enjoy the peace and beauty of our church and, perhaps, join us in worship.

God of mission

Who alone brings growth to your Church,

Send your Holy Spirit to give

Vision to our planning,

Wisdom to our actions,

And power to our witness.

Help our church to grow in numbers,

In spiritual commitment to you,

And in service to our local community,

Through Jesus Christ our Lord..

Amen
