Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. The church Quinquennial Report highlighted the urgent need to repair our tower and nave roofs and rainwater disposal system. We will also use it as an opportunity to engage the local community and encourage learning about the church and its history. We will do this through a programme of heritage activities and new onsite and online interpretation. We will create opportunities for local people to develop heritage skills,which will in turn provide an enhanced visitor experience and help to preserve the building. And we will provide greater hospitality through the upgrading of our inefficient heating system. Soon we must apply for a further £215,200 to carry out the works which is 75% of the total cost. We must find the rest ourselves. Due to the generosity of our regular attenders, we do have some savings to contribute and have received some grants and gifts from other donors. We are nearing our target and we hope you will help us over the finishing line! 
 

St. Peter & Paul Church, Caistor is within West Wold Deanery in the Diocese of Lincoln. Services are held three times each Sunday and on three occasions within the week. Attendance on a normal Sunday is around 60 with around 100 on the electoral roll. A small young persons’ group meet in the church during Sunday worship.  Attendance at major festivals is around 100. The church is used weekly by the local Grammar School and several times a term by the Primary School. The church is unlocked during the day for visitors who visit from around the UK and across the world (recently America, Europe, China). The meeting room with in the tower of the church is used by community groups for meetings etc. The church is also used for exhibitions, including the Arts Council England-funded Altered: Contemporary Art in Ancient Churches project, talks and concerts. The PCC considers the church building in its care to be a place of worship that also brings the community together for fellowship without religious obligation. It is in this spirit that it
operates and fulfils one of its primary purposes, which is to be a place of congregation for both local and wider communities.
