Bringing All Saints Beckingham Alive Again

All Saints is a Grade 1 listed building, which has suffered too long from degradation by the weather and past neglect. It was closed in 1998 and almost declared redundant. But the villagers and the PCC are determined to bring it back into use again - and a good start has been made, gaining funds to restore the roofing. But there is so much more we want to do! We are a small village in Lincolnshire, near the Nottinghamshire border, on the A17.

We have THREE objectives:

Objective 1: Looking Up:

To restore the chancel as a glowing neo-gothic jewel, a focus for worship and a real 'gateway to heaven' area! Already we are holding services there, though the walls are peeling!

Objective 2:Looking Out:

To transform the rest of the 13th century grade 1 listed building - back to its almost Cistercian simplicity, with soaring arches, and a great space were community events can take place - and with such adjuncts as catering facilities, disabled loo and room for concerts, art exhibitions and so on!

Objective 3: Looking Forward

To make the church 'sustainable'. Projects need to self-sustain! So we are hoping to put in solar heating, and facilities which will allow the church to become a place which pays for itself! I hope it will become a beacon for the future development of many other rural churches.
