St John the Baptist, Colsterworth

We are part of the Colsterworth Group of Churches. Click here to view services across the group.

With an estimated population of over 2000, Colsterworth, together with the neighbouring hamlet of Woolsthorpe, is the largest community within the group. Demographic changes over the last 50 years, including the closure of ironstone mining, have led to a high proportion of retirees, a mixture of old families and newcomers. With a significant number of new houses, and more planned, the village is now popular with commuters and young families.

Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life. The people who can help you are the parish priest or the parish safeguarding officer. Your Parish Priest and the safeguarding officer for your parish is listed below. If you wish to speak to someone outside the church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are available here: Tel 01522 504070 or email [email protected]. There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice.
