Dear People of God in the parishes of Kirton, Algarkirk and Fosdyke

It seems somewhat strange sitting here in Northern California looking out of my study window at the mountains bathed in glorious Californian sunshine, and reflecting on the idea that in less than twelve weeks I shall be moving into The Vicarage in Kirton and getting ready for my Installation as your new Vicar and parish priest on September 4th.

St Peter and St Paul's in Algarkirk is a beautiful medieval church. Containing nationally significant Victorian stained glass and decorations, it is a remarkable and important building.

Today, however, the church is in desperate need of repair and restoration.

Our aim is to restore the building and re-establish it as a significant and relevant asset to Algarkirk. We must take action now in order to preserve it for future generations.

We want:

  • to repair the church building and conserve the Victorian stained glass windows and decorative scheme in the chancel
  • to establish the church as an ideal venue and facility for a wide range of community activities and events
  • to establish a heritage centre in the church to provide visitors with information about the church and its place in history
  • to run an annual programme of heritage skills workshops for local people, conservation professionals and the general public on subjects such as stained glass making, relevant crafts and archaeology
  • to include a cafe, toilet and create spaces for a local history archive, reading and research room and workshops
  • to retain and active centre of worship within the building

We have been successful in being awarded £175,000 development grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund to begin the work.
