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

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 April 2018

I’m not sure what the weather will be like by the time you read this, but if it continues in a similar pattern to how it’s been around the time of writing I can only hope your central heating is in good order and your thermals in good repair. It has been an unusually cold winter. We’re used to mild; the two freezing fronts that have blown in from Russia, along with the murderous enterprise of that nation’s agents, have reminded us just how mild. There have been a couple of green winters since I’ve been in Finedon, with no snow worth mentioning; but this year we were actually stuck inside, sat in front of the Vicarage log burner with a pair of dachshunds as improvised lap warmers. We complain about schools closing or trains being cancelled too readily, but I don’t blame anyone for not risking it in those conditions.
