Our Church

St. Wilfrid's Church celebrated its 650 year anniversary in the year 2000. It is open every day for prayer and tourism.

There are some original features amongst which are a 14th Century screen, a fine Jacobean pulpit, traces of 16th Century glass and a 17th Century tomb in the chancel. The church was restored in the 1860s when a second north aisle, vestry and organ chamber were added and the tower was raised and decorated with pinnacles. The tower houses six ringing bells, frequently rung by a dedicated team of bell ringers. Over the south porch is the Parvis Room, used as the first grammar school in Elizabethan times.

Church Hall

The hall, situated to the north of the church is used regularly not only by church members but also by many independent organisations in the town. It has been modernised with the aid of lottery grants. The Bishop of Lincoln attended a dinner to celebrate its centenary in September 2006.

Alford church hall is available to hire for a variety of uses including meetings, parties and meals.
If you wish to check availability and costs; speak to Georgie Richardson, who is our Church Hall Manager on 01507 463345.
