Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Greatford

About Us

If you like the Traditional Language of the Prayer book you will feel at home here.

The Church of St Thomas of Canterbury, (aka St Thomas Becket), is a grade 1 listed building in the early English style, though its latest addition was in 2015 - a new stained glass window in memory of Thomas Becket. The church is the burial place of Dr Francis Willis, ordained priest who – with his son - attended King George III and combined traditional methods of treating the King’s ‘madness’ with more enlightened, forward-looking methods. Nolleken’s fine bust of Francis Willis and the Willis memorial tablets in the chapel (in the North Transept) attract visitors to the church. The church is open daily.

Greatford is a small village of about 250 people. There are two services each month: Holy Communion, Common Worship Order 2, on the second and fourth Sunday at 9am.  Look at the events and services for all of our seasonal celebrations.
