Fr. Richard ColesOn 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 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.

From The Vicarage May 2018

I had a friend forty years ago who once said as May arrived, “if the garden grew at the rate it grows this month all year round it would be a JUNGLE out there.” I don’t know why, but I still hear him saying it in my mind this time each year. I love May: the winter is past, the garden and the hedgerows and the fields are bursting into life, the thermometer is rising (and haven’t we waited ages for that), the birds are singing, and the juvenile long tailed tits who fly unsteadily just outside my study window are getting bigger and more stable – the power of life renewed is all around us.
