Welcome to the website of the South Cliff Villages Group

which is a new grouping of 10 Church of England parishes in the Diocese of Lincoln which in the main straddle the A607 road between Grantham and Lincoln. 

Elsewhere on the website you will find details of the Sunday services in this group of 12 churches, our other activities during weekdays, and more information about the villages.

 

As we prepare to leave the European Community the  Church of England encourages us to use the language of ‘mutual flourishing’ because that is what we must be about as a nation and that is what the church has to work and pray for.  In or out [of Europe] we have to seek that mutual flourishing and that will involve give and take, compromises, looking out for the other, deferring to one another, respecting one another

God of reconciling hope,
as you guided your people in the past
guide us through the turmoil of the present time
and bring us to that place of flourishing
where our unity can be restored,
the common good served
and all shall be made well.
In the name of Jesus we pray.
Amen.

A Prayer for our Churches:

God our heavenly Father, make the doors of our churches wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship and a father’s care, and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and lack of love: here may the tempted find help, the sorrowing receive comfort, the careless be awakened to repentance, and the penitent be assured of your mercy; and here may all your children renew their strength and go on their way in hope and joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
