Welcome to St Guthlac's Church in Fishtoft.
We are an Anglican Church in the Parish of Fishtoft, in the Deanery of Holland, within the Diocese of Lincoln. We warmly welcome people of all ages and backgrounds who want to discover or serve the living God of the Bible.
To that end we call all people to
Love People, and to
We are very pleased that our church building is once again open for private prayer throughout the week. Please feel welcome to call in between 9am and 5pm (except for Thursday and Sunday when we will be closed in the morning). We hope and pray that it will be a "Sanctum" - a place of peace, prayer and refuge for you and all the community. We have taken lots of steps to make it safe for everyone so please observe the Covid-19 measures we have put in place (notices are on the doors and inside the building). Thank you.
SERVICES WHILE WE ARE UNABLE TO WORSHIP IN THE CHURCH BUILDING The Government has announced that from 4th July churches can once again hold services. Following advice from the Diocese of Lincoln we are currently considering the measures that need to be put in place to enable this to happen safely and we will keep you posted to let you know when all the necessary preparations are complete and services are able to resume. Although we may not be able to meet together for worship in our church, we are still able to have fellowship with one another through sharing in prayer and worship in our own homes. You are invited to join with us in midday prayer throughout the week, Evening Prayers on Friday at 6.00 pm and Spiritual Communion on Sundays at 11am when the Eucharist will be offered at the Rectory on behalf of parish. You will be able to follow a video of the Sunday service via the link below if you wish. Prayers, readings and other resources can be found on the "Coronavirus" tab on the left hand side of this page. It may seem very strange and difficult not to be together in person but God is with us wherever we are and please be assured of our prayers as we go through this difficult and strange time together. "Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you" Psalm 55
We have uploaded a new newsletter under the news section for all the latest information.
The Sunday service will be available on our YouTube channel and on Facebook from 11.00am on Sunday. Previous services can be found there as well. You do NOT need an account with either of these sites to view the videos.
A prayer for these times:
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
