St Andrew’s Church dates back to the 13th Century, and was added to in the 14th and 15th centuries.
The church serves the village of West Deeping – a village of around 120 houses and a population of approximately 270 spanning all age groups. It is located just north of the border with Cambridgeshire and lies 3 miles west of Market Deeping and six miles east of the Georgian town of Stamford.
The people of West Deeping have worshiped in St Andrew’s Church for some 750 years, and are now formulating plans to improve the facilities in the church – the first step (subject to raising sufficient funds from grant applications and fund raising activities) being the installation of a toilet and a servery.
The church is open daily and services normally take place at 11am every Sunday morning.
