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.   

The church is usually open every day 9am to 5pm.  Come and see the refurbishment completed in May 2018. Long distance paths - Knightley Way and Nene Way both start from the village.

Not able to come to church on Sunday? Why not try the Evening Service of The Word? Held once a month on Tuesday evening (following the third Sunday of the month) at 6 30pm at St Mary's Badby, this friendly, peaceful service lasts no longer than 25 minutes. Led in turn by some of those who attend, there is always a brief talk about somebody inspirational. All welcome!
