St. Mary The Virgin Finedon

On behalf of the whole parish of Finedon may I invite you most warmly to step over our virtual threshold. You will find within our contact details and details also of forthcoming services and events here at St Mary’s. We are, of course, the parish church not only for the those who worship here but for everyone in Finedon, and the social calendar is almost as busy as the ecclesiastical calendar. Whatever you seek – friendship, community, something to challenge and stretch you, something to give you comfort and peace, the love of Jesus Christ, or simply the satisfaction of curiosity – you are most welcome to step over our real threshold too and see what we have to offer.  

Yours in Christ, Fr Richard.

The Church

St.Mary-the-Virgin_FinedonThe Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, is a mid-14th-century church with an aisled and cloistered nave of four bays. St. Mary’s is, by hundreds of years, older than any other building in Finedon, bearing in mind Finedon’s apparent importance, as old as it is, this present church of ours is not Finedon’s first. The ironstone gravestone that now stands near the font, which bears a carving of a cross within a circled, is thought by some to be Saxon, therefore it seems probable that there was a Saxon church here.

Everyone welcome

From the Vicarage July 2017

The slowish rhythms of summer have begun to settle and in the garden, as I idly amble from wilting plant to wilting plant with a watering can (OK, as Fr David does), I hear the sounds of cricket coming from over the road and the chime of church bells from down the hill. I’m glad of it too, because the frenetic events of the past few weeks have been quite enough excitement for anyone, I should think.
