Welcome to the website of the Methodist Church in South Holland.

We are a group of ten churches serving the towns of Spalding and Holbeach and the surrounding fenland villages of South Lincolnshire.

Details of our Church services and COVID Security arrangements can be found by following the link to our Circuit  Plan. 

Short Sunday or midweek services are being held in most of our churches. Visitors are welcome  but        are advised to make contact with our ministers or local church members to reserve a seat. Normal capacity is reduced to maintain social distancing.

Our congregations vary in size and character but all look forward to welcoming visitors and newcomers.   We welcome enquiries about baptisms and weddings and offer bereavement care to anyone in the      South Holland area. 

Our pastoral work includes visits to residential homes and local schools. Varied church activities  provide spiritual and social well-being of both young and old.

We aim 

  • to worship God and follow Christ  together
  • to pray and care for one another
  • to serve local communities in partnership with others
  • to share the good news of Jesus 

 Pastoral oversight is provided by the Rev. Alan Barker and the Rev Frances Ballantyne, with the help and  support of  a number of supernumerary (‘retired’) ministers.

In Methodism, Local Preachers play an important role in leading worship alongside the Circuit ministers.   You will find details of services in our ‘Circuit Plan’.

Leadership is also provided by our Circuit and Church Stewards together with our Circuit Administrator.

We are commited to good Safeguarding practice. Safeguarding policies and details of local contacts are displayed in all churches. In the event of any safeguarding concern, contact can also be made with our District Safeguarding Officer, Howard Smedley   07758 239286
