Presently the position of Vicar of Finedon is vacant

On behalf of the whole parish of Finedon may we 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.

Tour of St. Mary's Finedon

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.

Message from Father Stan,
February 2024

No sooner do we come to the end of the church’s season of Christmas & Epiphany with our Candlemas celebration on February 4th (transferred from February 2nd) than just 10 days later we begin the season of Lent. This year Ash Wednesday falls on February 14th, St Valentine’s day, and there will be two celebrations of Holy Communion that day (11am and 7pm). Ash Wednesday is one of the “days of obligation” when we should all come to receive the grace of God given at the Eucharist. In the early days of the church Lent was observed by those preparing for baptism at Easter and then over the years the Church came to recognise that by observing Lent all Christians could take to heart the call to repentance and grow in faith and devotion to God.
How can we do that in this year of Our Lord 2024? In the introduction to worship on Ash Wednesday we are invited to observe a holy Lent by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy word. It is my intention to examine these aspects of Christian living in sermons during Lent this year.
I hope that in whatever way you choose to observe Lent this year, it will be a time in which you can grow in faith and devotion to God. May He pour out his love upon us: a solemn lent leads to a joyful Easter.
May God bless us as we seek to discover and fulfil his will.
