For many centuries Stow has been a small country village, but its origins lie at the heart of the Christian mission and ministry to North Lincolnshire and the ancient Kingdom of Lindsey.
Traditionally, a Minster was a Church which provided both a worshipping heart and an administrative centre from which Christian ministers and missionaries were sent out to the local countryside and villages.
Stow Minster remarkably still has such a worshipping heart and a desire to serve whilst being considered by many to be amongst the best tourist sites and visitor attractions in Lincolnshire.
In addition to St Mary’s, the Stow Group of Churches, in the Diocese of Lincoln, includes St Helen, Willingham by Stow; St Edith, Coates by Stow; and St Peter, Torksey, all medieval foundations, with their own fascinating history. We also care for the now dual purpose Victorian Mission Church of St Hugh, Sturton by Stow.
Enjoy Stow , We are here for you. Why don’t you come inside?
You are very welcome.
