Gainsborough and West Lindsey have a unique place in Christian and American history as the place from which the ‘Pilgrims’ began their journey, where the English-speaking Baptists began and where key influencers of the First Amendment lived.
This unique tour explores the origins of these movements that changed America and the World, brings you face to face with their friends, and uses some amazing country churches to explore the history of their Faith.
