Welcome to St Edmund’s Church

On January 1st 2006 the Parish of Lady Bay and the Parish of Holme Pierrepont with Adbolton were combined to form the new Benefice of Lady Bay with Holme Pierrepont and Adbolton. The Vicar of Lady Bay, the Revd Robert Breckles, became its first Rector. The two churches, All Hallows and St. Edmund's have their own PCCs and parish responsibilities, but only the one Vicar.

The Revd Breckles retired in July 2012, and the Revd Mark Rodel was licensed to the joint parish as its second priest in September 2012. He is assisted by the Revd Canon Howard Bateson who oversees St Edmund's.

Services are mainly those of the Church of England’s 1662 ‘Book of Common Prayer’ (BCP), (St Edmund's is a member of the Prayer Book Society), although on the second Sunday of the month, there is a Common Worship Service, designed for families with children. Other services will remain as BCP services.

Our usual format is to have sung weekly services at St Edmund's at 11:00 am, as well as evening services at 6.30 pm. Holy Communion, Mattins, Evensong and Compline services are normally sung.

Please come and join us. We welcome everyone to all our services.
