The once forgotten St. Swithin’s Church has re-launched with hopes for strong community action throughout Lincoln.
The church was almost non-existent with less than 10 people attending the weekly service. After efforts were made by the Diocese of Lincoln, however, the church has now been re-established as a place of worship.
One of its main aims is to now reach out to the greater community, including youth, students and those in need.
“There seems to be a lot of alcoholism, homelessness in the city or issues with addictions,” said Matt Rodgers, assistant pastor at St. Swithin’s. “There are a lot of people to reach out and serve. We really want to play a part in people’s lives.
“As a church, we want to be outward-looking. We don’t want to be locked in this building. We want to be people who are loving our neighbours, serving them and playing our part in people’s lives.”
