Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Sempringham with Pointon

Diocese Changes Affecting Local Church

Because we are within the Diocese of Lincoln - their current change programme 'Resourcing Sustainable Church: A Time to Change - Together' is already dramatically changing the way our churches work in the Billingborough Group.

St Andrews - Sempringham is set to become a "Celebration Church" - which means we will open for Major Festivals (like Christmas), baptisms, weddings and funerals - but little else.

Christchurch - Pointon is set to become a "Community Church" - which means we hope to re-open our community activities (such as Cornerstone) this autumn, and we have just restarted twice-monthly Thursday evening worship (A New Emmaus Road), but it is unlikely that regular Sunday worship will restart.
