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.

From The Vicarage August 2020

I don’t know if you managed to get away on holiday this year? Mine, planned for May, did not happen, thanks to COVID19, and the past three months have felt, if not like a holiday, so different from the normal pattern of life that I have not really felt the lack of one. The Bishop, however, firmly suggests that the clergy take a break, but by the time I got round to it everything was booked up – so it was fortunate when a friend asked me to join her and her family for a week in the northeast of Scotland.

@ThallonW @OrgelbuchleinP @tarikoregan @houghhough It's looked pretty much like this since Holdich rebuilt the organ and moved the console to the side in 1852 https://t.co/Z0Phwv5pfV
