A beautiful exterior, original church plus extensions. Very impressive tower that can be spotted from some distance. Inside almost every side of the church has outstanding stained glass, many windows depicting local history. There are some really interesting points to look for in the church....More

I visited this church recently and I think along with the neighbouring hall it can only be described as a hidden gem. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I only wish I'd taken longer to explore it once I got there. Unfortunately the way Spalding...More

Spalding has managed to fend off the destructive forces that almost completely destroyed our tradition of parish choirs. Here you can find an all male choir of good quality with enthusiastic boys, men and teenagers. The success of the choir can be measured by the...More

This church is located just a short walk away from the centre of Spalding and is open every day. Set in a lovely church yard close to the Ayscoughfee Hall & Gardens so well worth a visit if you are in Spalding.

The church is a real focus for the Spalding community. It is also a beautiful accessible church architecturally. It's location next to Ayscoughfee Hall and the Riverside, it may get overlooked but together they really do set the heart of the town off. It is...More

A bit 'high church' I am pleased to say. A lack of happy clappy during the services. They seem to have a number of events every year - mainly school-based. The people seem very kind and the vicar believes in God - whatever next!
