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.

Well that went by in a ‘Flash’ but all of us at St Mary’s, Finedon are immensely proud of the supreme dancing skills of our vicar, Reverend Richard…or should we say Revvo. It was a great delight to welcome Dianne to church; hopefully she’ll return one day to give us another twirl in the aisle and we thank her for taking care of Revvo during his Strictly escapade. He’s not missed a Sunday at church throughout the show, even though he exceeded his mother’s expectations by reaching Michaelmas before his demise. We’ll be keeping an eye out for any groovy moves as he processes up the aisle during our services. 

Revvo truly is Finedon’s very own Lord of the Dance.

The Church

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 October 2017

I say from the Vicarage but I’ve seen precious little of it lately being caught up in the glitter and drama of Strictly, perhaps one of the most unusual adventures I’ve ever embarked on.
