St Faith’s Church, Kilsby

There has been a church in Kilsby, Northamptonshire, since the 13th century and the present old stone building still stands to serve the village.

We are part of the Benefice of Barby with Kilsby in the Daventry Deanery and we belong to the Daventry Team Ministry.

Church services are currently suspended, but the church building remains open during daylight hours for private prayer

With the rapid spread of Covid-19 and Northamptonshire in Tier 4, all Sunday services are suspended, at least until our area moves back into Tier 3.

Churches are allowed to be open, so unless the situation becomes even more severe, St Faith’s will be open for private prayer during daylight hours. Please be sure to only visit the church if you are not showing any symptoms of Covid 19. Please wear a face mask, use the hand sanitiser by the entrance, sign in for Track & Trace, and remember social distance regulations.

With no services in the church, a recorded service of Morning Prayer and Gospel readings will be sent out each Sunday via email and WhatsApp. You can join these mailing lists by contacting Rev Nigel on the links below.

'God the Father keep you in all your days.
God the Son shield you in all your ways.
God the Spirit bring you healing and peace.
God the Holy Trinity drive all darkness from you
and pour upon you blessing and light.'

Regular services

We usually hold a weekly Sunday service, at 11am. Services on fifth Sundays alternate between Kilsby and Barby. All are welcome, especially children. A children's play area, with toys, books and colouring materials, is available at the back of the church.

We have a choir of adults and children, and the four bells are rung regularly before services.

We have an active Social Committee who organise regular coffee mornings, quiz nights, fashions shows etc.

A warm welcome to everyone to join us for one of the services and if you would like to join the choir, become a bellringer, or help with children's activities, we would be pleased to see you.

For news of more events and this month's services, please see the Kilsby & Barby church newsletter.
