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 June 2018

What day that was: perfect English weather, faultless pageantry, English Tudor polyphony and American gospel, a groom in uniform and a bride with a train that reached practically from Windsor to the M4. The marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be remembered for a generation, I guess, not least for being the last grade A Royal wedding until Prince George walks up the aisle. So much was memorable on that day, not least the coming together of a mixed heritage American woman and a prince of the blood royal. One of my lasting memories will be the Prince of Wales escorting Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, from St George’s Chapel, he in grey morning suit, she in locks and a nose ring, with no loss of dignity to either. It’s just modern families, how we live now, and it’s fine.
