Brothertoft is a village in Lincolnshire, England, about 4 miles north-west of the town of Boston. It is part of the civil parish of Holland Fen with Brothertoft.
St Gilbert of Sempringham at Brothertoft is on Main Road, along the right of way track over the cattle grid near the Village Hall, to the Church.
The present church was rebuilt in 1847 by Thomas Gee Esq, and was a chapel of ease to the parish of Kirton until 1922 when it became the parish church and was dedicated to St Gilbert.
There was a previous church and the parish records go back to the late 1600s.
The church is a Grade II listed building and has a small bell tower.
In 1927 parts of the parishes of Holland Fen, Boston, Wyberton, Frampton, Kirton, Swineshead, Wigtoft, and extra-parochial land were transferred to the benefice of Brothertoft.
The parish church is now part of the Church of England "Brothertoft Group" in the Diocese of Lincoln, known as the "Five in the Fen" that also includes:
• All Saints at Holland Fen
• Christ Church at Kirton Holme
• St Peter at Wildmore
• St Margaret of Scotland at Langrick
