Lent lunches will take place at various churches throughout Lent. In keeping with our aspiration to be Eco Churches the food will be either local, organic, animal friendly or fair trade. This is our small part in caring for God's creation and supporting our local farmers.
Fasting is another element of Lent so instead of giving up chocolate or alcohol, why not go greener, for example, walk more and use the car less, try the 100 mile diet (source only ingredients that come from within a 100-mile radius of your home) or eat vegetarian meals during the week.

Barrowby All Saints
Welcome to All Saints Church
If you are thinking of visiting or moving to our village or would like to join us for worship or community events at our church, here is some information about us that you might find helpful.
We aim to provide a warm welcome to everyone who comes to our church and look forward to meeting you.
St Sebastian's Church has been at the centre of Great Gonerby village since Saxon times. Today we are a warm, friendly and informal Church with a heart to connect with all. We pray, we learn, we sing and enjoy cake! Come and join us!
Here at Harlaxton Church we offer a heartfelt, warm welcome in our loving and prayerful community with a variety of services that are centred on reading and understanding the Bible. Our beautiful Church building is open daily from 9.30am to 4pm for anyone who would like to visit, pray, or find sanctuary and purpose in a busy and confusing world.
St Andrew's is a busy well-loved church and its events are well supported by the village. It is a grade 1 listed building with several special memorials to the Blythe and Welby families. The Church comes to life with well supported seasonal events like Harvest, Christmas Carols, Summer Lunches, Coffee mornings and of course the well renowned Denton Street Market each May!
All Saint's Stroxton is a much loved Church surrounded by amazing views! The local community all pull together to keep this building open for people to come and worship, pray quietly or just find a moment of peace amongst the beauty that surrounds this Church.
St James the Greater sits boldly within the village of Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir as a comforting reminder of Our Lord's constant presence. Within weathered walls here is peace and beauty; alive in spirit (alongside God's creatures ... bats, birds, bees, butterflies, cats ...)
St Catherine's 'on the Hill' may only have been built about 100 years ago but since ancient times there has been a place of worship here. It is a small, holy place where you can feel the stillness and the presence of the sacred.
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. Romans 13:9-10 21/02/2024
