Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Waddington

St Michael

St Michaels is a welcoming, active and inclusive church in Waddington, about 5 miles south of Lincoln. Built in the 1950s, after the previous church was destroyed during WWII, the building is located in the older part of the village on the Lincolnshire Edge. We look forward to welcoming you into our church as we gradually emerge from lockdown into the new 'normal'

At the moment many of our regular groups and events are on hold. However, we are meeting in church on Sunday afternoons for a short evening prayer service (max. capacity 19 owing to social distancing) and open for individual private prayer on Tuesdays and  Thursday mornings. Sunday morning services, Prayer Wave and monthly Coffee Mornings take place online. We are active on Facebook, including our Little Angels Group which continues to meet via Facebook Rooms on a Thursday afternoon. To join in go to our Facebook page and click on the Groups link for Little Angels Tots Group and ask to join.

Do you enjoy gardening? Have you time to spare on the third Saturday each month? If the answer to these is 'Yes!' we'd love you to join us at our new gardening club.

We've set up an informal gardening club to care for the churchyard as a peaceful community space and develop it as a haven for wildflowers and wildlife. We hold a group session on the third Saturday each month from 10.00 am until 2.00 pm and anyone interested in helping out is welcome to come along. You can stay for a whole session or drop in for a while.

A few of the flowerbeds have been 'adopted' by volunteers who look after them. However, there are others in need of care, especially as we need to tidy things up before winter sets in. You can adopt a bed or area to look after regularly or have a look round and see what needs doing on the day.

Owing to CofE rules around Covid, we ask that you bring a face covering, gardening gloves and your own drinks, snacks and/or lunch with you. If you have them, please bring your own tools, particularly a spade or fork, hand fork, trowel and secateurs. Bring your waterproofs just in case!

Voluntary group Event held in a Green Space

Over 140 reusable face coverings have been made by volunteers from St Michael's for people in their local community.
