BARKWITH GROUP OF PARISHES
In the Church of England, unlike the Free Churches, there has to be a priest to hold certain
services and to keep the congregation together. The Barkwith Group (the old parishes of
East Barkwith, West Barkwith, Sixhills, Hainton, South Willingham, East and West Torrington)
has not had its own priest-in-charge for many years with its Lay Reader Mary Jordan acting as de
facto vicar and first the Rev'd Charles Patrick and then the Rev'd David Post giving us a great deal
of help. Now the Rev'd Fr. Chris Hewitt SCP, Rector of the Walesby Group and also our Rural
Dean, will be our priest-in-charge and the Group is delighted to welcome him. This will begin a
new chapter in the history of our group.
We are sorry that St Martin's South Willingham, All Saints Sixhills, St Mary's Hainton, St Michael
East Torrington remain closed. The Covid-19 regulations for opening churches (and other public
places) are so complex and labour intensive that for the time being we cannot open. This is the first
time for many years that the Church has been shut and we find this hard.
St Mary's East Barkwith, has been deep cleaned and services are held every 3rd Sunday at 9am.
