Welcome to Gwash & Glen Churches, the website of our three Churches

Ryhall and Essendine are in the County of Rutland, while Carlby lies just over the border in Lincolnshire.

About Us

We exist to show the love of God to the world

We welcome visitors wishing to see our historic churches as well as those who wish to worship with us, to explore the Christian faith, or who are simply in need of comfort at a difficult time.

Our style of worship could be described as fairly relaxed, middle of the road Anglican. We aim at being dignified but un-stuffy.

Our Mission Statement

"To be a church where all are welcome and where the love of God is freely shown to all"

You matter to God. You matter to us

We are three fairly small rural churches, seeking to work together to glorify God and to follow Jesus. 

At present our worship is restricted by the pandemic, but we aim to stream a service by Zoom every week and to worship in our churches as we are able.

You are most welcome to join  us Email revjosaunders@live.co.uk for a zoom link
