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.

St Faith's is alive...

St Faith's Church, KilsbyWith Church life resuming and God's praises being sung. St Faith's is alive once more. Your Church in your Community, a place for us all to gather in; a home for us all in which to celebrate life's great joys and to comfort one another in our times of distress and farewell. A place open each day to find some stiliness in, some quiet in. A place to find yourself in and a place to find God in.

Being able to meet, being able to sing, being able to chat over a coffee; things have been getting back to how we now but vaguely remember them. As we look to Easter there is reason to hope that conditions will allow further freedoms. Things are beginning to look optimistic.

Sunday services have been running at 10am for a while now. That is set to continue, though rather than just alternating week on week will now assume 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month as Communion at Barby and 2nd and 4th at Kilsby; with 5th Sundays being a joint service in one of the churches. 10.00 am seems to be the optimum time for most people, so we're trying that in both churches.

So, Holy Communion services are on alternate weeks. On the other Sundays there are services of Morning Worship, which are mainly Lay led; one or more folk from the congregation lead a service of readings and prayers.
