Churches Together in Spalding and District has carried out an enormous amount of work locally during the 60 years it has existed.

From relaying the Tell Scotland Billy Graham Crusade to 2,470 people in Spalding parish church in 1955, to introducing Lent lunches at the Baptist church in 1963.

Then there have been performances of The Way of the Cross during Holy Week, Churches Together floats in the town’s Flower Parade, a Celebrating Faith Mission, carol singing at late night shopping evenings and, in 2008, Hope 4 Spalding and Hope Fest.

In more recent years, the churches have worked even more practically, offering emergency beds to young people, the counselling service Space4U, and the Agape Food Bank, launched in 2011. In 2011, the Credit Union Lincup was begun as was a furniture recycling project. In 2012, Street Pastors was launched, to assist people in need of help during a night out.
