Music of Dr William Croft

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.

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.

From The Vicarage October 2020

Michaelmas, a nip in the air, leaves on the turn, time of brambles and fruit, and my first and last attempt to make crab apple jelly following the structural failure of muslin cloths and 3 kilos of fruit, causing a small explosion to stickily glaze the utility room.

@ruthvalerio: I know lots of us are big fans of @toilettwinning. Have you seen that they've now launched Bin Twinning? It's a brilliant way to help fund a community project that's preventing disease, protecting the environment and creating jobs. Do take a look! https://t.co/ldFazwQzSg

@FairtradeUK: Are #Fairtrade products really more expensive? 💸 It’s often assumed that respecting the human rights of people in supply chains and respecting the environment means more expensive products for consumers, but this is not the case.
