St Pancras Church - Wroot

A message from Reverand Paul Wilson

The Rector at St Pancras Church is The Revd Paul Wilson, who is also a Foundation Governor at Wroot Travis Church of England School. If you would like to discuss a christening, wedding, funeral or some other matter, you can find his contact details on the St Pancras church website. 

Welcome to St Pancras Church. We aim to be a welcoming, friendly and inclusive parish church serving the people of the North Lincolnshire village of Wroot and also the many pilgrims and visitors who come from all over the world because of our part in nurturing the Methodist revival of the eighteenth century. Our chief aims are to love God and one another through our worship together and through active service as Christian disciples within our community and the world, to 'know Jesus and make him known'.

Details of our services and other activities can be found on our church website (link: St Pancras - A Church Near You ) and we look forward to welcoming you whether you come from round the corner or across the world to know of God's love and to share that with others. St. Pancras Church is just a few hundred yards further on from the school, with which there are strong links. 

With every blessing.


The Revd Paul D. Wilson

Rector of the Epworth Benefice

Our school is lucky to have strong links with the community of St Pancras Church. Pupils and staff visit the church several times a year to celebrate the key Christian Festivals.  Members of the church community are Governors on our Governing Body.

The school also has regular links with the Baptist Chapel in Epworth. Revd Angie hosts Christmas and Easter events that our children participate in. Revd Paul Wilson from Wroot comes in and speaks to the children, he also forms part of our Governing Body. In addition our bishops visitor comes in once every half term to take an assembly talking about key Christian values. 

Our Y2 pupils have been invited again to the Wesley Memorial for their Christmas Journey event in December.  Due to the popularity of this occassion an Easter Journey will also take place for our Y5 pupils

Below is a little more information about the church building and its history.

St Pancras Wroot was rebuilt in the late 1870's but a church has stood on this site for many centuries. In the 1720's the incumbent was the Reverend Samuel Wesley of Epworth and for a time his son John served as his curate looking after Wroot. A modern stone commemorates this link at the entrance to the large open churchyard. It is thought that two of John's sisters are buried in the churchyard but their graves are not marked. St Pancras claims the second oldest bell in the Diocese of Lincoln. Because of the Wesley connection St Pancras attracts pilgrims from all over the world and there are framed pictures giving the history of the Church inside. St Pancras is now the only church in the village.
