Withamside United Parish

Welcoming, Worshipping and Witnessing in the name of Christ.

Welcome to Our Website

Withamside United Parish – celebrating all that is good and of God within our community.

Welcome to the Withamside United Parish, named for the River Witham,  which meanders through or around our eight villages. We are home to six formal churches in Aubourn, Bassingham, Carlton le Moorland, Norton Disney, Stapleford and Thurlby, and one informal cafe-style church in Witham St Hughs.

Whether you are looking for the times of church services or to enquire about a christening or a wedding we hope that you find what you are looking for on this website.  If not, please feel free to get in touch via email or phone (01522 788652).
