Fr. Richard Welcomes you

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.

St. Mary's Church

The church of  ST. MARY-THE VIRGIN consists of chancel, north and south transeptal chapels, clearstoried nave of four bays, north and south aisles, south porch, and west tower. The tower is surmounted by a lofty spire and the porch has an upper story. There is a modern vestry on the north side of the chancel.

Of the original 12th-century building nothing remains except the font, the church having been entirely rebuilt at the beginning of the 14th century. With the exception of the tower and spire it is all of one date, and is one of the finest examples in the county of a church of this period. The tower and spire were erected about fifty years later. The whole building is therefore substantially of one style and it preserves a unity in design which gives it particular distinction.

St. Mary's Parish Magazine

From The Vicarage July 2018

Look out for a new arrival at St Mary’s Finedon – a curate. Curates were once plentiful here but they grew rarer and rarer and vanished when Fr Scorrer, who we think was the last, came back as Vicar. But no longer; we are joined this month by Jane Burns, our first curate in sixty years? She is no stranger to church – she was a churchwarden for many years – and no stranger to the area – she served in that post at St Peter and St Paul Kettering, where she lives with her husband and one of their two children and two dogs. Jane will introduce herself to the parish in due course, but I can tell you that her curacy will be unusual in that her ministry is intended to be work-based, centred in and around her day job as a fundraiser for a charity based in London, rather than in a parish. For her curacy of course she will also serve here, but part time rather than full time. What will it look like?
