The Parish

Of

South Lafford

Welcome

The Parish of South Lafford consists of eleven churches covering a rural area between Sleaford and Bourne.  The churches serve fifteen villages, mostly quite small; the total population is a little under 2000.  All our churches are listed buildings.  The Parish is part of the Church of England Diocese of Lincoln. 

We hope to appeal to most people's spiritual needs by a wide variety of worship, mostly based on the contemporary language Common Worship and the traditional Book of Common Prayer, but with some more innovative services too.  The South Lafford Choir sings at some of our services and rehearses regularly - new members are welcome: see South Lafford Choir page under Our Community tab.

The Parish is committed to ecumenism and is part of Churches Together in Lincolnshire. The Parish has an inclusive approach to Christian fellowship and a desire to meet the challenges of Christian living in the 21st century with prayer and imagination.

    KEEPING SAFE - SAFEGUARDING

    Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
