The "Alde Kerke" in Soest is the Petrikirche. It is so named because it is the oldest church in Soest. Before today's St. Petri church was built, there was already a predecessor building there, which was built there around the year 800 and later enlarged. The today's Petri church was then built around 1150 as a basilica and in 1174 first described in a document as "Alde Kerke".
