From Sunday 5th July 2020, Sunday Services have resumed at St Neots Parish Church and St Mary’s Eynesbury. They are carried out in accordance with government guidelines for during the Coronavirus, and are at 8am & 930am at St Neots, and at 11am at Eynesbury. In time other services will also be reintroduced.
As this continues to be a time when many cannot physically come to church, videos of short services and prayers (and a live stream of a Sunday Eucharist at 8.30pm on a Saturday, also available afterwards for catch-up) will continue to be placed on our Facebook Page which you can access without having to be a Facebook Member. If you are a Facebook member, please "Like" our page. We have also opened a YouTube channel onto which some of our services and reflections will be uploaded.
Join us in building a welcoming, caring, Christian community that draws on all that is best from the rich traditions of the historic Church of England and modern liturgical practice to make the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ live for the people of St Neots today.
In normal times, our beautiful historic 15th Century church at St Neots is usually open from 9am to 5pm daily, while Eynesbury Church, four minutes’ walk away, is open on many days. The coronavirus restrictions closed our doors on 23rd March: in the light of relaxations that took effect in mid June, Eynesbury Church is open on a Thursday, 10-2, for private prayer; arrangements at St Neots Parish Church will be announced soon.
At St Neots, an oasis of peace and calm in a busy town centre, visitors would normally be welcome to walk around, look at the wonderful stained glass and the dignified late-perpendicular architecture. The Lady Chapel is a place for quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, and you can light a candle.
The Parishes of St Neots and Eynesbury came together on 1st March 2020 to form a new single parish with two parish churches, covering the whole of the town east of the Great Ouse (including the new developments at Love's Farm and Wintringham, east of the railway), and served by a Team Ministry which will welcome new staff, lay and ordained, in coming months. This website, previously focusing mainly on St Neots, will gradually be adapted to cover both churches. Further information about Eynesbury Church can be found here
If you are thinking about a christening, a wedding, or need some advice on funerals in church, there are some helpful Church of England websites (though, during current closures, christenings and weddings are not possible except in emergency, while church funerals may only take place at graveside or crematorium). Follow the links for more details, but please do not hesitate to contact us for more local information.
