Fleckney: St Nicholas


Part of the Wistow Benefice with St Wistan, Wistow; St Luke, Newton Harcourt; and St Mary Magdalene, Kilby

Welcome to our home page.

Our four beautiful churches have stood for many centuries and throughout that time people have come to celebrate the most important milestones of human life. Our churches are sermons in stone that point to the living faith of the people who worship in them. Our churches speak to us of God and of the victory of Jesus Christ over sin, suffering and death, and all that disfigures life on earth. Within these churches you will be able to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and to receive strength and healing from Him through the celebration of the life-giving sacraments that He confided to his Church.

We hope you will find our website to be a useful introduction to the work of the Church and the Wistow benefice. We pray that God will bless you and will find life in his Name.


The parish of Fleckney: St Nicholas is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Leicester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."

A service for victims and survivors of church-related abuse.

Safe Spaces is a free and independent support service for anyone who has experienced abuse in relation to the Church of England, Church in Wales or the Catholic Church of England and Wales. This could be abuse by someone who holds any role in the Church or is linked to participating in a church-led activity or group.

If you have been affected, however long ago, Safe Spaces can provide you with support. You do not have need to have told the police or the church authorities, and you do not have to still be involved with the church. Your information will not be shared without your consent, unless you or someone else is in immediate danger. Safe Spaces can provide a range of help, including advocating with authorities and other agencies, giving emotional support, providing information (including information on church and police procedures), understanding your needs and working together on individual support plans.
