Special notice about our church and COVID-19
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close. We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.
Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life. See: www.grimsbyminster.com
The vicar/churchwardens of this church can be contacted in an emergency by telephoning 01472 277277 and leaving a message on our answering machine which will be heard regularly or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

Values, Mission & Vision
Our life together is rooted and nurtured by our values, which equips us to speak of God in all that we do. Grimsby Minster has thought carefully about how we express our values in our Mission statement and how we can share our diocesan vision to be a “healthy, vibrant and sustainable church, transforming lives in greater Lincolnshire”. If you would like to know more about our mission, vision and values please see our vision poster.
“Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However, even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
The people who can help you are the parish priest or the parish safeguarding officer. You can contact the safeguarding officer who is Monica Kent or the Rector Cannon Andrew Dodd on 01472 277277. If you wish to speak to someone outside the church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are available by clicking this link https://www.lincoln.anglican.org/safeguarding-overview. There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice.”
Many parishes, whether they have their own parish website or not, make use of A Church Near You. https://www.achurchnearyou.com/ (ACNY). At the foot of every page on ACNY there is a link to a map, which has links to all national diocesan safeguarding contacts.
