Hello and welcome

Market Overton Free Church is a group of friendly people following Jesus who hold various activities in Market Overton Village Hall and Edmondthorpe Social Club. I've been privileged to be the minister of the church since 2001. I live with my wife Julie in South Witham. We have two lads, who have now 'flown the nest'.
I can assure you of a warm welcome at any of the activities advertised on our website, so do feel free to come along. I hope you find the information you're looking for here. If you have any questions or would like a visit, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page.
