Church Visiting
Leader - Jackie Searl

We meet on the 4th Thursday at 10.30am unless otherwise specified.

The Church Visiting Group meets monthly except in December on the fourth Thursday morning usually starting at 10.30am.  Between March and October, the group visits churches in the area, usually with a guide from the church and often followed by refreshments.  In November, January and February the group meets usually at Wake House when we might have a speaker or sometimes a meeting when several members give a short talk.

Occasionally, the group takes a longer trip by coach such as the visit to the Leicester Bell Foundry.

 

Currently, the group has around thirty members but there is always room for more.  We each pay an annual subscription of £2-3 per annum to cover costs of the indoor meetings and always make a minimum £1 donation to each church we visit (with extra if refreshments are provided), and gift aided if the church encourages this.

 

We have visited some wonderful buildings and learnt a great deal of church history as well as hearing about the associated village history.

 

If you would like to learn more about churches in the Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties, please contact me via the Group Co-ordinator.
