A Message from our Parish Priest and Vicar.
On behalf of the parish communities here in Kirton, Algarkirk and Fosdyke welcome!
If you already live in this rural area of Lincolnshire, you are very fortunate because you can come to see us any time, and take part in our weekly celebration of the Holy Eucharist, the Mass or Holy Communion and enjoy the wonderful sense of friendship and belonging which awaits you in this parish.
You can even join us daily in Kirton Church at 9am and 5pm when we meet to pray the Daily Office of the Church in Morning and Evening Prayer. Or join us on Thursday’s at 9-30am for the Holy Eucharist. Also Wednesdays at 12-15pm in Algarkirk for Celtic Midday Prayer and at Fosdyke every Thursday at Noon for Midday Prayer, homily and music.
If you are new to the area, then I hope you will find on this web site all the information about the parish you need to get started. We are eager to welcome you to take part in the various activities and ministries of the parish, this includes all wedding enquiries and Baptism requests.
If you live in other parts of the country or world, then I hope this website will inspire you by letting you see something of an active and joyful Church of England parish. For me it is a privilege to minister in this community as parish priest and Vicar.
