St. John’s is one of six parishes, and five church buildings which make up our group. The group consists of The United Benefice of St. John the Evangelist, Brigg; St. Mary the Virgin, Wrawby and All Saints, Cadney-cum-Howsham with the Benefices of St. Clements’, Worlaby and St. Andrew’s, Bonby. We are a part of the Yarborough Deanery, in the Archdeaconry of Stow, a Church of England Parish, within the Diocese of Lincoln.
The group is of a central catholic tradition. The Eucharist is very much at the heart of our expression of spirituality. The practice of prayer – individually, and as a gathered worshipping community (the congregation) – is very important to us here at St. John’s. The primary service at which we gather together corporately in prayer is The Eucharist, which some call the Mass, Holy Communion or The Lord’s Supper. The Daily Offices of Morning and Evening Prayer are other important acts of prayer – some parishes have a tradition of these being said each day in church, so that people may gather corporately as the body of Christ. In other places, such as at St. John’s, members of the church say the Offices at home. This corporate prayer is enriched by our times of ‘private prayer’ said throughout the day. These three elements of prayer – the Eucharist, the Daily Offices and Private Prayer are at the very heart of what it means to be a Christian.
