St Guthlac, Little Ponton

Our beautiful medieval church serves the small village of Little Ponton which has the appearance of a tiny, isolated hamlet, although it is the closest of our villages to Grantham. The church provides lively Harvest Festival and Christmas Carol services, which attract many people from the local farms and villages. Our monthly BCP Holy Communion service has a small congregation. The simple, early Norman church has an air of warm homeliness. It has chairs, rather than pews, which provide a flexible space for worship and other events.

St Guthlac is part of the Colsterworth Group of Churches and is currently in vacancy. There will be Holy Communion services on an irregaular basis until further notice.

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 sageguarding 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. There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice.
