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.

Back in the church!

We're pleased that regular Sunday services resume at St Faith's Church from the Second Sunday of Advent, 6th December, at their normal time of 11am.

To protect all the following precautions are in place:

  • social distancing
  • facemasks to be worn
  • hand sanitiser on entry
  • no singing
  • no service sheets supplied (but see download, below)
  • one at a time to Communion
  • bread only at Communion, no wine
  • no refreshments after the service
  • maximum of 30 people

You can download the order of service in advance, to print off at home.

We look forward to seeing you there.

To keep the service length to a minimum in these difficult times, only the Gospel is currently read at Communion, but the other readings are sent out as an audio file each Sunday morning by email and WhatsApp.

If you would like to be on the benefice email group please contact Rev Nigel via email at enfrys@gmail.com

If you would like to be on the benefice WhatsApp group please join WhatsApp (by downloading the app) and emailing your phone number to enfrys@gmail.com

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.
