Community Outreach

It is part of our Church mission to support the local community by helping to promote a town in which everyone can flourish, and where people can discover the extravagant love of God.

We run and support numerous events, groups and offer Pastoral care to anyone in need. These are detailed on the community pages in the menu above, so please explore this section.

The Holbeach Community Larder & Cafe which operates on a Friday every week is supported by the Church and many other volunteers and organisations.

 


Care Homes

We have 4 Care Homes and a cottage hospital in our parish and they are each visited once a month. We offer a short communion service with hymns, a reading and short talk.

Patchett Lodge – 2:30 pm on the first Tuesday of the month

Holbeach Hospital – 2:30 pm on the first Thursday of the month

Beech Lodge – 2:30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month

Mayfield – 2:30 pm on the third Wednesday of the month

Nutten Stoven – 2:30 pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month

Rev’d Michaela Dean is our chaplain to the Care Homes and can be contacted on 01945 440347 if families would like to speak with a chaplain or request prayers or a visit to a relative. She will make a particular effort to be available when residents are facing illness or coming towards the end of their life and will offer prayers and anointing if requested.

Michaela is also chaplain to Holbeach Hospital and visits the hospital most Wednesday mornings at about 11:00 am and is available to visit residents if requested either then or at other times.

Please note however that Michaela is a part-time voluntary chaplain and though she will always do her best to be available her time is limited. If she cannot be available then other members of the clergy team can also be contacted by the care homes or the families.


Schools

We take Collective Worship in our church school – William Stukeley Church of England  Primary School twice a month and in Holbeach Primary Academy once a month. We also frequently welcome both schools to visit the church regularly in support of their curriculum.

We also encourage visits by classes from the University Academy of Holbeach (UAH) and they use the church for concerts.

We also aim to visit Small Saints Pre-School once each half term.
