Parish Church

We are part of the East Trent Group of Churches, which is part of the Newark & Southwell Deanery in the Southwell and Nottingham Diocese. Our East Trent Group consists of eleven parishes and four communities. The Rector of our group is Mandy Cartwright and her contact details are given below. 



Revd Mandy Cartwright



“East Trent Rectory”,
1, Vicarage Close,
NG23 7PQ



01636 361657


We would be pleased to see you at any of our services. Of course you are also welcome to attend any of the services held in the other ten churches in our group – interaction between the churches is actively encouraged.

Periodically the eleven churches combine for a special service – to which everyone is very welcome. 

The services in Winthorpe Church are advertised in the monthly magazine 'Focal Point' which is available at the beginning of each month. They are also advertised on the noticeboards opposite the entrance to The Woodlnands and by the church gate. You can also find details of services at Winthorpe and throughout the group on the East Trent Churches website here. The services are taken by Mandy, or by retired clergy, or by a layperson.

The worship is taken from Common Worship and the Book of Common Prayer

We have a regular monthly pattern of services:

1st Sunday

No Service



2nd Sunday

Holy Communion



3rd Sunday

Morning Worship



4th Sunday

Evening Prayer (Bi-Monthly)

 5pm (Winter)

 6pm (Summer)

You are invited to remain after the service for tea, coffee, and fellowship. 

We occasionally have a Flower Festival and a Songs of Praise when we ask for requests for favourite hymns from the villagers for inclusion in the service. 

We have a band of ladies who keep the church supplied with flowers and dedicated people who keep the church clean and the brasses sparkling. We also have a team of bellringers who ring for most services (and also for practice on a Friday evening). We are exceedingly grateful as they are all volunteers - more are needed.

In 2006 we had a Loop System installed to help those of us with hearing difficulties. This has enhanced the service for many. As yet the Church has no toilet facility but this is under discussion as is the provision of permanent kitchen facilities.

The Church remains locked between services for insurance purposes but is open every Thursday for Open Church from 1.30 to 3.30pm for visitors to look around and maybe spend a few quiet moments perusing the many stained glass windows. All are welcome!
