St Mary Magdalene

We are indeed in unprecedented times. Rev. Philip has set up and published a very simple online 'blog' page where he will provide prayer and worship resources for use at home. He will also be publishing homilies and ideas for use on Sunday's and other occasions (i.e. Holy Week) It is in development, but it is here:

Also, there is a dedicated email address for anybody to use if they are in need or can provide help with anything in this time.

CRICKET MALHERBIE St. Mary Magdalene Church is situated in Cricket Malherbie and is the focal point of the community, and the only place of Worship. The Church dates from 1852, built on a former site and is Grade 2* listed. It will accommodate sixty worshippers comfortably. The inner fabric is well maintained and in good order, as are the churchyard, grounds and the wild meadow.
