The new benefice of Fotherby, North Thoresby and Grainsby with Waithe is located to the north of the county Market town of Louth and extends northwards along the A16 towards Grimsby, reaching the northern edge of the Deanery of Louthesk; all of which are located in the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and extending out across some of the neighbouring ‘marsh’ towards the coast.
In 2015, as the Mission Community of Fotherby and North Somercotes benefices, we took part in a Developing Discipleship Pilot. From that we felt our vocation was to be a diverse group of people working in the fellowship of Jesus Christ, serving our communities prayerfully and showing God’s hospitality and generosity. Our aim was, with God’s help, to grow in fellowship by having group events and serve our communities through hospitality and outreach into our villages.
If you feel called to join us, more information can be found by contacting the Rural Dean, Nick Brown, on 07901 852198 or e-mailing email@example.com

We would support our priest, being mindful of their well-being and expect our Priest to take a regular rest day a week and make use of opportunities for retreats. There are two retreat houses in the Diocese, one at Edenham – one being Franciscan. Our Ministry team which currently works across two benefices would enjoy working in collaboration with our new Priest.In a Deanery context, it is hoped that the priests in the Louthesk Marshes Mission community would have joint ministry meetings to support each other and exchange fellowship and ideas.
