St. Helen's audio guide

St. Helen’s Church stands in the centre of the village, easily visible as one passes through and is an integral part of village life. There is a regular pattern of Sunday services which are well attended and services are held for special feast days, baptisms, weddings and funerals for local people. The Church has six bells in the tower and there is a team of enthusiastic ringers who ring before services and practise every Wednesday evening. We also have a choir who sing at services and by request at special occasions. We welcome new members at our practices on Tuesday evenings. The Church is managed by a Parochial Church Council which helps with the services and organises many of the social events in the village. These events also help to raise money for the upkeep of a very beautiful church. St.Helen’s is one of eight Churches which form The Saxilby/Stow Group.
“Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
The people who can help you are the parish priest or the parish safeguarding officer. You can contact the safeguarding officer, Barbara Bussey or the parish priest – Reverend Nicola Penn-Alison. If you wish to speak to someone outside the church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are available 
here. There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice"
