A live-streamed Eucharist takes place at 7.30pm on a Saturday, and is also available afterwards for catch-up. It can be found each week on our Facebook Page . BCP Evening Prayer takes place on Sunday at 4.00pm on the Eynesbury Page. We also have a YouTube channel onto which other services and reflections are uploaded , including Bible monologue reflections by the Revd Margaret Marshall.
Funerals and some other life events are possible in church, subject to strict limits.
We aim to be a welcoming, caring, and inclusive Christian community that draws on the riches of tradition, and modern liturgical practice, to make the message of Jesus 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.
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 Victorian stained glass (photos of the windows are here) and the dignified late-Perpendicular architecture (with woodwork from both periods). Eynesbury also has similar delights, though on a more modest scale. The Lady Chapel at St Neots and the Chancel at Eynesbury are the places where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.
The historic parishes of St Neots and Eynesbury (separate since 1204) 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.

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 COVID19 restrictions, christenings, weddings and funerals are still subject to strict conditions and very limited numbers - see here). Follow the links for more details, but if you are interested in exploring the possibility of a Christening or Wedding in either of our churches, and have some connection with St Neots, please do not hesitate to contact us (Office or Rector) for more local information.
