Seven parishes forming a united benefice in South Lincolnshire
North Beltisloe Benefice
Ropsley, is the biggest village in North Beltisloe with a population of around 840. It lies 6 miles east of Grantham with a regular bus service to the town. It has won the Best Kept Village in Lincolnshire title a number of times. It has one pub, with a tea room, a garage, a village hall, a cricket club, a football team, a mobile library and post office. There are 34 on the electoral role.
The Church of England primary school has over 100 pupils and close connections with the Church. The school’s most recent Ofsted report is ‘Good with some elements of Outstanding’. It is at capacity. St Peter’s holds services for the children every term.
The village hall is used for many social activities including table tennis, W.I. meetings, indoor bowls, tots group and the annual Church fete and coffee morning.
Services are normally held on all Sundays when there is not a benefice service and alternate between Holy Communion, Morning Prayer and Evensong. There is also a monthly midweek service with prayers for the sick. Average attendance for normal Sunday services is 14.
In addition to the benefice Eucharists, we hold a number of special services including a very well attended Remembrance Sunday service.
The PCC has 9 members and meets 5/6 times a year.
