Seven parishes forming a united benefice in South Lincolnshire
North Beltisloe Benefice
Our village and its chapel
Humby Chapel is in the hamlet of Great Humby which is in the parish of Old Somerby. The congregation is largely drawn from Little Humby which lies in the parish of Ropsley. Together the two Humby villages have a population of about 85, 25 of whom are children.
Humby Chapel is unusual. It is not formally part of North Beltisloe Benefice -
About 5 or 6 services are held each year which attract an average attendance of about 40 In the last few years there have been a number of baptisms. Humby Chapel has a real ecumenical contribution to make in the area. It is particularly good to see so many young families supporting the regular services.
HOW WE ARE ORGANISED
We are run by a Committee of local residents and have a public AGM. Both Ropsley and Old Somerby PCCs are represented on the Committee. Each year we make a contribution towards both of these parishes’ Share request.
The relationship with the North Beltisloe parishes is very strong. Two of our members take a lead role in its Ministry Team and conduct services at other benefice churches. We also attend the Benefice Council.
