Holy Trinity & St Mary the Virgin, Old Clee, Grimsby (Old Clee Church)
WELCOME TO OLD CLEE PARISH CHURCH
A chance to visit Grimsby's oldest Church set in a small countryside area of Old Clee with its historic Dutch Cottages and loads of history.
We are situated in Church Lane Grimsby, just off Clee Crescent. You are invited to join us in our worship and events which are usually held in our own Church Hall nearby.
This ancient building is the oldest in Grimsby. Holy Trinity and St Mary served for many centuries as the parish church for the farming village of Clee and the fishing hamlet of Clee Thorpes. The Saxon tower dates from c1050. The nave was rebuilt and the transepts added in Norman times. St Hugh, the first Bishop of Lincoln, re-dedicated the church on 5th March 1192, during the reign of King Richard the Lionheart.
Staying 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. If you wish to speak to someone outside the church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team
