Christian Fellowship

We strive to follow the example of Christ and we welcome those who would like to join us on our path. Christianity is about relationship and community and the best way to find out about faith and prayer, to raise questions and to get help, is to meet some fellow Christians. We seek to work alongside other Christian churches and denominations as closely as we can.

Prayer

In our services we pray for our community. We are always pleased to receive prayer requests for those who are unwell, distressed or in need. Please make requests to the Vicar or Churchwardens. Or you may wish to e-mail us at

Home and Hospital Visits

If you would like the Vicar or a member of our Local Ministry Team to visit you at home or in hospital, please do let us know. We are able to offer home communion to those who are not able to get to the church.

Weekly Services

There are regular church services at All Saints. Please refer to the list of Winterton Group Services. You will be made very welcome if you can join us. You may be able to attend services regularly or just once in a while. We will pleased to see you at any time. Sometimes the service pattern is changed so do please check our Calendar - default view

Annual Services

Throughout the year we do have regular special services. These will be listed in our Calendar - default view and usually include: Holy Week services before Easter; Easter services; Advent, Christingle and Christmas services; All Souls; Remembrance Day; Annual Ecumenical Covenant Service with our friends at Trinity Methodist and many more. You are welcome to join us.

Lent Course

Each year we offer a Lent Course in conjunction with Trinity Methodist Church. Details are published each year.

Children's Activities

These include special Children's Workshops at Lent/Easter and Advent/Christmas. Further details about these from the Vicar.

Social Events

Our very active Social and Fundraising Committee arranges a programme of regular Coffee Mornings; Jazz and Choir Concerts; annual Garden Party, and New Year Dinner. We hope that these will offer fellowship, enjoyment and entertainment for you. Details are posted in our Calendar - default view.

Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

These life events are crucially significant occasions. Please see the full details about our provision on the separate page Baptisms Weddings and Funerals.

Thanksgiving Services

The Vicar is always pleased to consider thanksgiving services which may be planned to mark a significant wedding anniversary or a recent civil wedding ceremony. It may be appropriate for such a thanksgiving service to mark the life of a recently departed relative.

Winterton Church Organ School

This is an exciting new opportunity being created by All Saints' Church, Winterton, with the assistance of the Diocese of Lincoln Music Development Officer.

All Saints is subsidising the Organ School to help make it available to any school or college student in our area of North Lincolnshire who has the potential to learn to play the church organ. The Church is keen to encourage new young organ players in our area.

We also host an adult group once per month for those who wish to improve their pipe organ playing skills.

For more details see Winterton Church Organ School

Floodlit Church

The church floodlights were provided by the Town Council but are operated by All Saints. At Christmas and certain other occasions they are switched on. They provide a beautiful view of the church on dark evenings. It may be possible for All Saints to switch them on to mark your special anniversary or family occasion. For further details see Church Floodlights

Magazine

We provide a regular monthly parish magazine. For full details please see Parish magazine.

Bellringing

We are lucky that our six church bells are in good working order and they are rung regularly by our team of bellringers. Thursday evening is a practice night and the bells can be heard before Sunday services. Ringers are usually available for weddings and muffled bells can be sounded at funerals if requested. For more information please see Bell Ringers

Tower Clock

Our clock on the tower dates from the time when most people did not have watches. It is still operated by the original 1834 mechanism which was designed and made in Winterton. It has to be wound every week by our Clock Keeper. For more details see Church Clock.

Website

We started this website in 2009 to make available as much information about our church as we can. We hope that this will help all those in our community to be aware of what our church offers.

Heritage

Parts of our Grade 1 Listed Church Building at All Saints are at least 1,000 years old. The church is itself a most important part of the heritage of Winterton. There are also some historical records relating to Winterton still held at the church. A section of our website is devoted to this heritage so that the details are more accessible. For further details please see our Heritage section.
