We are an all age, Bible-based, praying and worshiping community; who look outside ourselves, to love the people of our parish; that we can share with them, the joy, light and love of Jesus; so that they may become his disciples.
We are a friendly family church community situated in a village of about 2500, just to the west of Grantham with a variety of services and weekly activities for all ages and interests.
Come along and join in our Informal, Hands Free, Family Service on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
- Follow the service on the big screen - no hymn books required.
- We also have live music, modern worship tunes, and a drama or puppet sketch.
- Children take a large part in the service, taking the collection, doing the readings, and welcoming our congregation.
For quieter times, the 8.30am spoken Holy Communion and Morning Prayer services are ideal a chance to recharge those batteries after a busy week.
Our 10.00am services follow this pattern
1st Sunday Morning Praise
2nd Sunday Holy Communion
3rd Sunday Families Service
4th Sunday Morning Prayer
5th Sunday Cafe Church
They offer a mix traditional hymns and more modern worship tunes.
- During term time there are Sunday Clubs for school age children (younger children are welcome to attend with a carer).
We also offer both a ladies and a mens fellowship group, an informal singing group and house groups. In addition we work with the village Baptist Fellowship to offer Friday evening youth clubs for children in school year 3 or above. We are also very fortunate to have a peal of 6 bells and an active enthusiastic and talented team of ringers.
Our churchyard overlooks the Vale of Belvoir, and you are most welcome to sit awhile in the peace and quiet; a sanctuary in the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Our church stands in the centre of a roughly circular site, and it at least the second Christian place of worship to be built there. The nature of the site suggests that it may have been a focus for pre-Christian worship, before the first church was built. It was quite common for the early church to take over sites which were already regarded as sacred and ‘convert’ them to use for Christian worship.
The church referred to in the Domesday Book was probably wooden. We have no way of knowing when it was built, or whether it was the first Christian building on this site. The only indication of that church is some Saxon carving embodied in the present church structure. The present church is an ironstone and limestone building of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, consisting of a nave, with two arcades of four bays each, a chancel, a tower and spire containing six bells.
