St Peter and St Paul's a short history

Middle Rasen had two churches St Peter's and St Paul's. One came under the Prior and the other the Abbott. Like many things over time they both fell into disrepair and by 1860 a major restoration was needed . St Peter's, then known as the 'High Church', and St Paul was known as the 'Low Church', both required much repair work and, because only one church was needed for the community, the decision on which would be restored was decided in favour of the more interesting of the two, St Peter's

As a result of the dismantling of St Paul's, and especially since much of'St Peter's restoration was carried out with material from St Paul's church, St Peter's absorbed the title of its sister church and became the only parish church of Middle Rasen, with the dedication of St Peter and St Paul.

A Millennium Project to restore the three existing church bells and add three new bells was completed by March 2000. Bells 1, 2 and 6 were cast by Eljbouts (Holland) in 1999; bell 3 dates from 1695, bell 4 from 1721 and bell 5 from 1707. See also Bell Ringers

Worship at Snarford

Although St Lawrence's Church at Snarford no longer has regular Sunday services, being now looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust, a service of Evensong from the Book of Common Prayer is normally held there during August. If you have never been to visit the church it is well worth a look, with its amazing life like monuments of the St Paul family dating from the 16 th Century. The church is always open.

The West Lindsey Open Churches Weekend is taking place this year over the weekend of May 20th / 21st. As many of you will know, in Middle Rasen the Church hosts a concert on the Friday night - 19th May, so if any of you have a talent which you would like to share with the village at the concert, whether it is singing, playing a musical instrument, poetry etc, please let a member of the Church know and we will try to include you in the programme! Over the weekend, we always hold an exhibition in which we encourage local people to exhibit. This year the theme is "weddings", please look through your belongings and see what you can loan us to put into the exhibition! There will, as ever, be someone in the Church at all times, so your treasures will be safe. We are looking for wedding dresses, the oldest Church wedding photograph and maybe the most recent and any other wedding related memorabilia! Please put your thinking caps on! Ploughmans lunches and other light refreshments will be served throughout the exhibition.
