A 1,000-YEAR-OLD LINCOLNSHIRE CHURCH IS THE LATEST TO JOIN US

4th November 2019

A new marker in the history of a thousand-year-old Lincolnshire church is announced this
week.

Centuries of devotion to the Book of Common Prayer at St Nicholas Church in Cabourne – a
hamlet in the county’s West Lindsey district – has just been endorsed through corporate
membership of the Prayer Book Society.

‘Within living memory we have only ever used the Prayer Book here,’ explains churchwarden
Pauline Johnson. ‘Most of those who love our services do so because the language is both
familiar and well-known from childhood.

‘That’s why some other local churchgoers who are disenchanted with modern-language
services are deciding to attend St Nicholas Church for the Prayer Book service of Matins on
the third Sunday of each month.’

Features of the historic church include a Saxon tower, font and grave markers which are a
thousand years old. The church’s Tudor chalice, made locally in Hull in 1553, is used
annually for Holy Communion on Easter Day.
