Preserving past, present and future at Ingoldsby

31 January 2017


St Bartholomew’s Church in Ingoldsby is looking forward to continuing to serve the local community and to welcome visitors from near and far for many years to come. 

In recent years, the PCC has been seeking to repair masonry on the church tower and to replace the south-aisle roof, together with other essential repairs. This work has now been completed, with the main part of the repair and improvement work being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to whom the PCC is most grateful.

In addition to this major work to the church fabric, a faculty was also obtained for the addition of a lavatory and a servery, which would offer further opportunities for hospitality and events. After working alongside an architect and the Diocesan Advisory Committee, a toilet has been added, and the servery and a cupboard were funded by grants from the National Churches Trust and the Lincolnshire Churches Trust, to whom the PCC is also most grateful for their support.

With the work close to completion and to celebrate the replacement of the fallen cross on the chancel gable end, the Bishop of Grantham celebrated Holy Communion at a benefice group service held in November 2016. Further events are now planned for 2017, with all associated with the church looking forward to welcoming people to share in the beauty of St Bartholomew's, Ingoldsby.

The village of Ingoldsby is located approximately eight miles to the south of Grantham and to the east of the B1176, with easy access from the A1 and A15. Further information on St Bartholomew's Church is available from the church website
