In the centre of Lincoln City

A wealth of history

At the heart of the community

Lincoln's Civic Church

Always a warm welcome

Welcome to our church, whether to explore the building or to visit our events or services. St Mary-le-Wigford church is the oldest church in Lincoln and evidence of its Saxon origin can be seen in the church.

We hold many events throughout the year and you can find out more by following the relevant links above.

Our Mission Statement

“Let all guests be received like Christ, who will say, I came as a guest and you welcomed me”.

Our community strives to follow this precept given by St Benedict to his monks and make this ancient building a place of welcome, hospitality and sanctuary to all who live, work or visit the City of Lincoln.

We don’t manage it all the time and so we try again by;

Gathering as a community which welcomes and celebrates human diversity including spirituality, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation.

Seeking to create a space where people of any faith, or none, can question and discover the sacred life through openness, struggle, laughter and prayer.

Working for a common commitment to be in solidarity with the poor and marginalised and to cherish creation.

News and Events

Preserving local memories and sharing them with future generations

 

Thanks to a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, St Mary le Wigford created a history hub to gather and preserve the wealth of historic information it holds on the lost churches of Lincoln.

 This has grown into the Bricks and Bones community heritage project whose logo features St Mary le Wigford, St Mary’s Guildhall, St Peter at Gowts, St Botolph by Bargate and St Catherine’s which are the main buildings along the old Roman Road in Wigford, the old name for Lincoln from the High Bridge to South Common including Sincil Bank, and the industrial areas that grew up on either side of the old Roman road.

Bricks and Bones combines a number of arts and cultural projects to build community cohesion and we are mapping the history of Wigford, including by holding events where long-term residents can share and preserve their family memories.  

The photograph above shows Elsie’s mum when she was a ‘Munitionette’, making tanks at Ruston’s factory in 1917.

If you would like to be a part of this project please contact jscullimore@btinternet.com or check the Bricks and Bones website.
