Fen Drayton: St Mary the Virgin
We are very sad to announce that public services are suspended and the church itself will be closed until further notice.
A local church which has served the needs of the village for over 800 years. We have recently joined the Huntingdon Deanery and have now merged with the parish of Fenstanton to form the single parish of Fen Drayton with Fenstanton. Our two churches are dedicated to SS Peter and Paul, and Mary (yes, really) and give our local communities choice and flexibility in their worship.
The parish of Fen Drayton with Fenstanton is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops' guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of Ely’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services. Further information can be obtained from our PSO Caroline Stevens on 01954 231433 or Revd Rosie Tallowin on [email protected]
