St. John the Divine Church Southrey

The little church of St John the Divine at Southrey in Lincolnshire is far from being a typical English country church - more like something that has been transported from New England. Built by the parishioners themselves in 1898, the neat little gabled and belfried timber building was covered in PVC in 1978 to protect the original wood. Recently painted inside in sky blue and re-carpeted, the church now boasts a 5-paned stained glass window to commemorate World War 1 and the sacrifice made by the soldiers and airmen from the village during the last 100 years. Memorials linked to World War 1 within the churchyard have also been restored to their original white state.

WEEKLY EVENT

Craft, Coffee (and Tea), Cake and Chatter meeting in the church Thursdays: 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm

Do you sometimes wish you could just sit and chatter to someone while sharing a good old fashioned cuppa, or maybe sharing your skills of crocheting, card making, knitting, quilting etc with others? Well, on Thursdays between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm in St John's church you have a chance to do just that. We have a new activity in the village - so why not come along? Bring and share with us any of the above skills.
