Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Holy Sepulchre with St. Andrew wnd St. Lawrence Northampton

About Us

Holy Sepulchre, fondly known locally as St. Sep’s, has been a worshipping and witnessing Christian presence in Northampton since 1100AD.

We gather regularly on Wednesdays at 10am for a said service of Holy Communion (approximately 20 minutes), and Sundays at 11am for a sung modern Catholic style service of Holy Communion (approximately 60 minutes). 

During our Sunday services we aim to achieve a balance of hymns from through the ages. Our singing is usually accompanied by the organ, and occasionally by guitar. 

As an Inclusive Church we welcome all people regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, mental or physical abilities, or financial or social status.

Our building is a unique Grade 1 listed 'Round Church' which has been extended over the centuries.
Founded in 1100AD by Simon de Senlis of Northampton Castle (since demolished) the church is built in soft Northamptonshire iron stone and has suffered from erosion over the years. However, the Restoration Trust has raised £1.3 million over the last thirty years leaving the church in very good order. The congregation, together with a professional consultant, are now looking at how the building may be used in the future to better serve the needs of the local community.

If you wish to visit Holy Sepulchre other than for a worship service you will find it open between 2pm and 4pm on Saturdays May-September.
