Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Badby

St Mary the Virgin, Badby

The 14th century building, with a fine 15th century clerestory, dominates a knoll at the top of the village, which has a population of 650. 

The parish is one of five comprising the Knightley Parishes, sharing one Rector, who with an active lay band maintains a varying schedule of services.   Please check the Services and Events page and especially check the One-off Events section.  We welcome everyone to our services.   

During the period of the initial Coronavirus  Covid-19 pandemic, the church was totally closed.  From July 26, 2020, the church is open for individual prayer every Sunday and Wednesday between 10am and 4pm  allowing a safe 72 hours between openings. However with the sudden increase in coronavirus cases, from December 26, 2020 the church is closed.  There will be no services nor visiting.

See why the bells aren't ringing here.

Long distance paths - Knightley Way and Nene Way both start from the village.

Most of our activities are not regular so are posted in the One-off Events tab.

Unfortunately we cannot configure this website to open that tab first!

While we are constrained by the second 'lock-down' there will be no services in churches. The Revd Malcolm Ingham will be posting a YouTube service for the Knightley Parishes on the new Benefice website.
