Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin - at the heart of St Neots, Cambridgeshire - and our sister church, St Mary’s Eynesbury: serving St Neots, Eynesbury, Loves Farm and Wintringham, but with a wider reach too.
Sunday morning services in church are normally at 8 & 9.30 at St Neots and 11 at Eynesbury.
We have a monthly afternoon family service, and occasional afternoon choral and other special services.
Weekday 9.30am eucharists are on Wednesdays & Fridays at St Neots & Thursdays at Eynesbury, and occasionally at other times for major feasts. We are reviewing our live-streaming provision.
At communion services, we have resumed administering communion in both kinds (taking some low key measures in handling them). We do not expect face coverings to be worn (but feel free to do so should you wish).
We aim to be a welcoming, caring, and inclusive Christian community - modern and traditional - making the message of Jesus known today.
Our beautiful historic 15th Century church at St Neots is usually open from 9am to 5pm daily.
Eynesbury Church, four minutes’ walk away, is open occasionally and on request.
At St Neots (an oasis of peace and calm in a busy town centre), visitors are welcome to walk around, look at the wonderful Victorian stained glass (photos of the windows are here) and the dignified late-Perpendicular architecture (including original roofs). 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 came together in 2020 to form a single parish with two parish churches, covering the whole town east of the Great Ouse. This website covers both churches: further historical information about Eynesbury Church can be found here
Weddings, Christenings, Funerals and commemorative services in church are all welcome.
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.There are also helpful national Church of England websites to help you think about a christening, a wedding, or need some advice on funerals in church.
