Church


There are close links between St Peter’s Church in the village and the school.

The church is represented on the Governing Body and weekly visits are made by the Church Vicar to lead School Worship. Children visit the Church several times a year to take part in their own Harvest Festival, Christingle and Easter Services.

The church of St Peter dates back to Norman times. Some parts of the church appear to be of Anglo-Saxon origin. The building dates back to at least 1380. In the 17th century part of the church was demolished and re built by the vicar of the time, Reverend Francis Furlong, because dry rot was discovered in the walls.

The ecclesiastical parish is part of The North Beltisloe Group of parishes in the Deanery of Beltisloe in the Diocese of Lincoln. From 2006 to 2011 the incumbent was The Revd. Richard Ireson.  Revd.Mike Doyle joined us at the end of 2012. You can find out much more about Revd. Doyle on our Governing Body page. Click here

Our Community Award

Each year Ropsley Church, The Parish Council and The School jointly award a shield in recognition of services to our community.

This year the award was presented to the terrific ladies who formed the Playground Committee. Through a huge series of funding raising activities they were able to obtain match funding. This in turn meant that they were able to build a new playground near our Village Hall.

The children, who involved in the planning, were all incredibly excited about watching the building of the new equipment and finally getting a chance to play on it.

Thank you ladies!
