About Us

St. Andrew's United Church (formerlyThe United Mission Church at St. Andrew's) was formed by the joining of the Anglican, Methodist and Baptist congregations in Kirton Lindsey.  We meet and worship together in St Andrew's and the former Baptist Church across the road is now used as our church halls.  Services are led by ministers from each of the three denominations. 

Keeping Safe

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 is happening or something someone 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.
