Our Mission

We are called to serve our local parish and the wider community, so that what we say and do reflects our love of God in Christ Jesus such that people will find a spiritual home here with us.

Welcome to all

If you have been accessing our live-streamed services, or simply looking at our website, welcome!  Perhaps you find church on line easier to try out than a physical building, perhaps these extraordinary times have triggered something spiritually inside you, perhaps you would appreciate linking with a Christian community.

A message from Lawrence, our Website Editor

Welcome to everybody, particularly to anybody who has "landed" on our site for the first time.  If you would like to make contact with our church community then please click here to email our priest, Bishop Rob.

Our heartfelt thanks must continue to go out to Bishop Rob & Janine for their deep, insightful and moving video services through the weeks of "lock-down."  This time we have voices from the Choir of St Martins-in-the-Fields" bringing us, "I the Lord of sea and sky" recorded individually in their homes. Thanks also to Revd Pat for her Morning Prayer service this week.  All these have helped our St John's Christian Community, and I am sure many others, to navigate through the first eight weeks of the Covid-19 prevention measures.

So, thank you Bishop Rob, thank you Janine, and thank you Pat.  Thank you all!

Hard though it is, it certainly behoves us all to continue do our best to comply with the ever evolving advice and instructions that our National Government issues.  If we all do as we are asked then we hope and pray that the country will eventually be able to return to some kind of normality.

Our "Community Page" continues to grow as more of you are sending in you pieces to be added.  Thanks to all who have contributed so far. If you would like to contribute then please email our website editor by clicking on the "Email Lawrence" link below, or follow the link from the Community Page.  Please have a look around our website to see what we do at St John's during normal times.

Finally, we have received a plea for short term Foster Carers in Lincolnshire for the provision of Respite Foster Care.  If you know of somebody who could help please email Sally, our Churchwarden, (click here to email Sally) who will put you in touch with the contact at Lincolnshire County Council.

Best wishes and stay safe!
