About Us


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.
