We have launched a crowdfunding appeal to raise money for the restoration project. We need pledges of £300,000 before mid summer. Much will come from official heritage charities, but we have to raise at least £50,000 ourselves. Please contribut if you can: every little helps.

And PLEASE, share this appeal. THANK YOU!

After many years the clock on Kirton Parish church tower is working again, complete with chime on the hour from 7am until 11pm.

Sadly the clock's hour striking hammer seems to be too light and is therefore too quiet. It is being adjusted or replaced to make the hour chime louder against traffic noise.

All this thanks to a very generous gift in memory of John and Ruth Smart for many years regular members and active worshippers in our congregation. The Parish council of Kirton also contributed to this restoration project alongwith the Kirton News.
