St Botolph’s Church

For church service times click here

St Botolph’s is the parish church of Helpston.  The priest in charge is Revd. Dave Maylor who took up the post in February 2012.

The church was built mainly between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, though what was originally a Norman tower was rebuilt in 1865.  The first known rector of the church was Galfrid de Helpeston in 1230.

The poet John Clare is buried in the Churchyard.

There is a service each Sunday: these are generally Communion services with a congregation of about 25 to 30 people. There are also  two “all age” services a month, one with communion, the other an “All Age Praise”.

All Services are held at 10.45am. See the “Forthcoming Events” for full details

The Church  manages Botolph’s Barn in Church Lane as a community facility offering 2 meeting rooms which is available for renting by groups or individuals.

Good evening, I am bringing my mother to visit the John Clare museum in August and was wondering if the church would be open for a visit at the same time. Does the church have regular open times?

kind regards Helen Schmidt., Atlanta, Georgia
