St Andrew & St Mary, Stoke Rochford with Easton

St. Andrew and St. Mary, Stoke Rochford, is one of the most beautiful Churches in Lincolnshire, and serves both the parishes of Stoke and Easton. The patron of the Church, was originally St Mary, and the village was referred to as South Stoke. The parish of North Stoke was removed in 1843, and the Church was rededicated to St Andrew and St. Mary. The Church is a stones throw away from Stoke Rochford Hall, a hotel and conference centre which was designed by William Burn in 1845. It was here that the plans were laid out for the disastrous Operation Market Garden, in 1944. Every year, members of the 2nd Battalion of the Parachute regiment, meet at our church to celebrate their achievements, and the service men and women that have been wounded or lost.

Stoke Rochford 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.

Keeping Safe (Safeguarding)
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.
