St John the Evangelist Manthorpe


We welcome everyone to share with us in the beauty of our church, and to seek God in the stillness.

The church of St John the Evangelist, Manthorpe is one of fourteen churches in the Deanery of Grantham, within the Diocese of Lincoln, which in turn is part of the Church of England in the Province of Canterbury in the United Kingdom – our Mother Church is the The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lincoln. We are a Fair Trade Church, member of Churches Together in Grantham and District and a supporter of Grantham Foodbank, The Passage and Street Pastors.

The parish serves the village of Manthorpe and the nearby modern housing estate on the northern edge of Grantham.

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.
