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

 

   

SERVICES FOR MAY - For the first Sunday in May the service will be held in the community room at the back of church but we hope to move back into the chancel this month now the weather is getting warmer. We are still encouraging the wearing of face masks for church services in the community room.  

 

Please note that the calendar on here is no longer kept up-to-date. Details of our events and services can be found on "A Church near You" website - search for Fishtoft.   Below is a list of events for this month:

Church and COVID-19 arrangements

We want to keep church as safe as possible for everyone - although it is no longer compulsory, we would like to ask people to continue to wear a face mask for services in the community room. We also ask that people continue to maintain some social distancing and stay away if they have any cold-like symptoms. 

Communion will be done by intinction (dipping of the bread into the wine by the priest) as we still do not feel it safe to return to a shared cup yet. 

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 5.00pm Monday to Saturday.  (We will be closed on Thursday mornings for a mid-week clean and when there are special events or services). We hope and pray that it will be a "Sanctum" - a place of peace, prayer and refuge for you and all the community. Thank you.
