Church towerWelcome 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 God

Love People, and to

Follow Jesus

Church and COVID-19 arrangements

We want to keep church as safe as possible for everyone - it is now compulsory to wear a face mask in church. We also ask that people continue to maintain some social distancing and stay away if they have any cold-like symptoms. We are also encouraging people to take regular lateral flow tests. 

Communion will still be done carefully, and offered in one kind (the bread only).  These measures may gradually be changed when it seems appropriate.  This approach seems to be a common one across the churches, and is in in line with the advice from the Bishops in our Diocese and Churches Together In England.

SANCTUM: Our church building is open for private prayer throughout the week. Please feel welcome to call in. Our usual hours are between 10.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Saturday.  (We will be closed on Thursday mornings for a mid-week clean). 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.

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.
