Welcome to the Website of St. Hybald's Church at Scawby.

St Hybald, a little known Saxon saint of the seventh century was probably the Abbot of Hibaldstow.  Only three other local churches are dedicated to him: those in Ashby de la Launde, near Sleaford; Manton (although this is now a private dwelling) and our neighbouring village of Hibaldstow where he is believed to have been buried.

The earliest recorded church in Scawby now only survives in the lower part of the 14th century tower.  After the ‘fire’ in 1839 the rest of the church was rebuilt and extended.  It now seats about 200 people, mainly in pews, although these have been removed from the North Aisle and a folding glass screen erected enabling it to be used for meetings or hospitality as required. 

We aim to be a friendly, caring and vibrant church where all are welcomed and encouraged to be faithful in word and deed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and open to His call to serve Him in the parish.

To make the building appear more welcoming we have recently enhanced the entrance by replacing the old iron gate across the front of the porch with beautiful glass doors.  (See our Picture Gallery.)  This has enabled us to utilise the porch as an information area with notice boards and display racks.  By leaving open the wooden door to the church and relaying the flagstones to improve wheelchair (and mobility scooter) access we believe we have created a universal invitation to enter our church.

The glass doors are kept locked when the church is not in use but a key can be obtained from the Post Office or The Old School next to the church.
