Winterton Church is renowned for its stately tower which soars to a height of 132'. The nave is exceptionally wide and spanned by a magnificent Victorian roof. Winterton has enjoyed a long-standing Anglo-Catholic tradition. We welcome all Christians to join us and worship Our Lord 'in the beauty of holiness.' The church has close connections with the sea: the crucifix that stands in Fisherman's Corner is carved from ship's timber, a trawler net forms its canopy; plaques record the valiant deeds of the village lifeboatmen, and a memorial records the sacrifice of Fr Clarence Porter, who died after saving a choirboy from drowning.

We are a friendly and lively bunch of people who welcome newcomers and visitors to join us.

Our church is open daily from about 9am to 6pm (until dusk in winter) 

Our main service of the week is Parish Mass at 9am.
