The church in Burgh-on-Bain is dedicated to St. Helen and is centrally located on the busy main A157.  It is a fine Grade II building with two Norman arches and Medieval and Victorian additions.  The church and churchyard are well cared for and in a very good condition.  A churchyard plan is available and is kept up-to-date. The church is not open but the key is available from locations listed on the church door.  Car parking and disability access are difficult at the present time but parking can be found on the verge in Mill Lane (opposite the church building) Services are held regularly as part of the parish service rota with music provided by a fine pipe organ.


There is no church building in GIRSBY.


Burgh-on-Bain and the hamlet of Girsby are situated on both sides of the Al57, Lincoln/Louth road.  There are approximately 45 traditional and modern houses sparsely spread over a few square miles with a population of about 85 adults and 15 children.  Children attend primary schools in Donington-on-Bain and Ludford and secondary schools in Market Rasen and Louth.  The adults are largely retired but there are some farming families.  There are no amenities in the village but there are plans to adapt the church building to enable village activities to take place there.  From the main road bus services run to Louth and Lincoln every few hours.


Churchwarden details can be found in the 'Who' section.
