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.

St. Mary's Parish Magazine

From The Vicarage November 2020

All Saints and All Souls rolls round again in this weirdly undifferentiated year. Undifferentiated by the normal routine, but nature, reliably, continues to mark the passing of seasons. We had a lovely spring, and we’re having a lovely autumn; as I write, the trees, in bright sunshine, are shedding leaves of red and orange and gold and purple, such a display they remind me of vestments.

@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.
