Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin in the heart of St Neots, Cambridgeshire, and our sister church, St Mary’s Eynesbury.

In normal times, our main Sunday Service at St Neots is at 10am; at Eynesbury it’s at 930am: and we would be worshipping at other times on Sundays and in the week too. But these are not normal times: all Public Worship has ceased until further notice from 17th March 2020.
During this difficult time, 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 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. But we decided on 23rd March to keep our two churches closed to visitors, and later that day were instructed in the light of increased restrictions that it must be so.
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.
