Our Chapel stands at the centre of the village on the coast road from Mablethorpe to Cleethorpes. It is one of the few remaining Chapels with a balcony (still used for events and funerals) and Schoolroom (which serves as a village Post Office once a week—we have a monthly coffee morning at the same time). Two people who moved to the village forty years ago remember their first Sunday morning service. Long serving Local Preacher Herbert Bartholomew, gave them "a 'earty welcome" and it is the same today. The congregation has been strengthened recently by members from North Somercotes and Fulstow who have sadly seen their Chapels close; but this has resulted in a strong sense of fellowship. Sunday morning worship at 10:30am has seen new faces in the pulpit after the recent joining of the two Circuits and this has been welcomed. We are fortunate to have two organists—we have Hymns & Psalms and Mission Praise—and a cuppa after the service helps the togetherness.
The Chapel has been renovated over the recent decades and comfortable chairs replaced pews. A modern pulpit still has central place. Fellowship Meetings on Monday at 7:15pm with a variety of speakers.
