Lafford Deanery's forty-six churches serve an adult population of approximately thirty-six thousand. Two-thirds of the population are based in Sleaford and the immediately adjacent villages; the remainder are distributed between rural parishes many of which are relatively sparsely populated.

Sleaford is part of the North Kesteven District Council that is amongst the areas of fastest growth in the European Union.  The population gives rise to approximately six hundred Occasional Offices per year and the average Sunday Attendance is about seven hundred.

 

Sleaford Larder Appeal

Many, many, thanks to all who continue to support the Larder; your contributions
are much appreciated, & significant.

At the last delivery I asked if there were any particular items they were short
of, to guide our shopping & fill gaps in supplies.  

The greatest need is for any

tinned meat based product & tinned vegetables

to make main meals. Any gift from the list is most welcome, thank you.
