This is an important medieval building at the Centre of the thriving rural community of Colsterworth. This was the church attended by Isaac Newton, and is less than a mile away from his house; Woolsthorpe Manor. Both of Newton's parents are buried in the church, and he was baptised there in 1643.

The worship at Colsterworth is in a state of transition, and we are working to make our services accessible to all members of the community. Join us to discover what faith means in our changing world. We are an accepting community that does not believe in judging others for who or what they are. Faith and forgiveness matters to us here in Colsterworth.
