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 February 2018

A New Year, and in spite of storms and rain and freezing temperatures, the first snowdrops appear, or Candlemas Bells as they were known, their arrival coinciding with one of the Church’s practically forgotten feasts (actually they seem to arrive earlier and earlier – I saw some on New Year’s Day – but we’ll let that pass). Candlemas commemorates the encounter between Simeon, the old prophet of Israel, and the infant Christ at the Temple; and to a man who is blind (the tradition maintains), vision is restored. Vision? Yes, the hope of his nation suddenly manifest in the form of a child, right in front of him. He, in his blindness, sees what the rest of us can’t see: God incarnate. So overwhelming is this, that he says the word now preserved in the Nunc Dimittis and said each night at Evensong.
