Otherwise known as St. Peter in Eastgate is a Church of England parish in Lincoln. It stands alongside St. Peter's Church of England Infants School towards whom it has a strong commitment. The parish is very active in the community offering a main service on Sundays and various community building sermons and activities all through the week.
The current structure dates back to the late 19th c., where there was a re-establishment of a church on this piece of land during the Victorian reign. The first church on the site, however, was in the 11th c. and was damaged during the civil war in the 17th c. The entrance to the church is from the side on a footpath that leads to a tall archway. It has a very historic feel in the outside, contrasted with the home like decor on the inside. The liveliness of the community associated to the church is really felt at St. Peter’s.
