Directory: Churches and People


Faith? Mission? Just want to know what it's about?

Some people know they have faith - perhaps they were brought up in a Christian household, or have already found their path.

Some have received a 'calling', they know they are called by God to serve Him, and they are travelling the path that will enable them to become priests, readers and lay ministers.

Many of us know a little bit, or are just plain curious to understand, why God? Why Christianity? Why Church?

Whether or not any of these are what brought you to our website, you are welcome. We would like to try and help you answer any questions you may have, and hope that the pages here will be helpful and supportive. 

If you would like to find out more about the Christian faith, but are not sure where to start, you might want to explore one of the following websites or

Alternatively, you may want to visit one of our 631 churches in what makes up the Diocese of Lincoln, and talk to your local vicar. Ask them if they have a course for people like you who want to explore the Christian faith - many do, and if they don't, ask them why not!

You may want to just go and sit quietly at the back to absorb what is going on - that is fine, we like that too.

Finally, a word of encouragement. If you want to find our more, don't give up! Each of our Churches has a different feel, a different style, and if at first you don't exactly find what you're looking for, persevere try again.

We don't claim that any of our churches are all that they could be, but we do hope that each of them are honestly trying to live out what it means to be a Christian (a follower of Jesus) today - and if that is something you would like to explore, we would love you to make contact.

We look forward to seeing you!

The Rt Revd Dr David Court
Bishop of Grimsby
