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.
