Around 50 churches threw open their doors for the chance to show the history and heritage within.
Many churches adopted the WWII and RAF 100 theme, creating displays of local connections, creating floral displays and bringing out archives for visitors to view.
Market Rasen’s Holy Rood Catholic Church took part in the event for the first time and were pleased to welcome more than 250 visitors to view the displays of vestments, angels and historical texts.
The church was also one of the many featured in Radio Lincolnshire’s ‘Pirate Gold’ feature on Sunday too.
Music was a big feature at a number of churches, along with food - ranging from tea and biscuits, to a big breakfast at Riby.
The event continues this weekend in the western part of the district.
