Welcome to the Wainfleet Group of Parishes
The parishes of Wainfleet All Saints, Wainfleet St. Mary, Croft and Thorpe St. Peter comprise the Wainfleet Group of Parishes in the Deanery of Calcewaithe and Candleshoe in the Diocese of Lincoln. As four rural parishes situated on the Wash in south eastern Lincolnshire, each is quite distinct in history, tradition and character.
All four parishes have passed Resolutions A, B and C, and are under the pastoral and sacramental care of the Bishop of Richborough, The Rt. Revd. Norman Banks. The worship at all four parishes is Eucharist-centred, utilizing Common Worship Order 1.
Our common mission: To enable people to be part of the worshipping community and to know God.
The church gives a feeling of openness, light and space. It is a place of daily prayer and service for God and the community.
You are welcome as a friend and fellow traveller.
The name Thorpe was originally quoted in the Domesday book as ‘Torp’ which is Anglo-Saxon for a village or homestead. The Church seeks to be at the heart of this community. You are welcome as a friend and we hope you enjoy your visit to this special place.
