Circuit Office:

We are a group of churches serving the towns of Spalding and Holbeach and the surrounding fenland villages of South Lincolnshire. Details of our services can be found by following the link to our Circuit Plan.

Our congregations vary in size and character but all look forward to welcoming visitors and newcomers. We welcome enquiries about baptisms and weddings and offer bereavement care to anyone in the South Holland area. Our pastoral work includes visits to residential homes and local schools. Varied church activities provide spiritual and social well-being of both young and old.

We aim :

  • to worship God and follow Christ together

  • to pray and care for one another

  • to serve local communities in partnership with others

  • to share the good news of Jesus

Pastoral oversight is provided by the Rev. Luke Smith, with the help and support of a number of supernumerary (‘retired’) ministers. In Methodism, Local Preachers play an important role in leading worship alongside the Circuit ministers. You will find details of services in our ‘Circuit Plan’.

Leadership is also provided by our Circuit and Church Stewards together with our Circuit Administrator.

We are committed to good Safeguarding practice. Safeguarding policies and details of local contacts are displayed in all churches. In the event of any safeguarding concern, contact can also be made with our District Safeguarding Officer, Howard Smedley: 07758 239286.
