Welcome once again. One hundred churches have come together to celebrate their rich diversity. We have churches of all sizes and denominations, some are simple churches serving small hamlets, others are buildings of larger stature, serving our market towns. But all share one thing in common; a warm welcome to everyone over the festival weekends.
Once again you will we well nourished at many of our churches as they put on a fantastic feast of refreshments and lunches to whet your appetites. Ranging from tea, coffee and biscuits to Ploughman's lunches, bacon butties, even full cooked English Breakfasts, there is surely something for everybody!
So, please enjoy our festival and tell your friends about your experiences here in West Lindsey. We know many of you visit year after year we thank you for your support in making this one of the biggest and best Churches Festivals in the country.
