St. Neots Parish Church
Welcome to the home page for St. Neots with Eynesbury Parish.
We aim to be a welcoming, caring, Christian community that draws on the best from the riches of tradition, and modern liturgical practice, to make the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ live for the people of St. Neots today.
St. Neots church provides an oasis of peace and calm in a busy town centre. Visitors are normally welcome to walk around, look at the wonderful Victorian stained glass and the dignified late-Perpendicular architecture (with woodwork from both periods). Eynesbury also has similar delights, though on a more modest scale. The Lady Chapel at St. Neots and the Chancel at Eynesbury are the places where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved and can be seen from the Nave, but the spaces themselves are not currently open to the Public.</span>
The historic parishes of St. Neots and Eynesbury (separate parishes since 1204) came together on 1st March 2020 to form a new single parish with two parish churches, covering the whole of the town east of the Great Ouse (including the new developments at Love's Farm and Wintringham, east of the railway), and served by a Team Ministry which will welcome new staff, lay and ordained, in coming months. This website, previously focusing mainly on St. Neots, will gradually be adapted to cover both churches.
Our safeguarding commitment
The parish of St. Neots with Eynesbury 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(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Ely’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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.
Please see our Services and events page to find out about the services we currently hold.
In normal times, our beautiful historic 15th Century church at St. Neots is open from 9am to 5pm daily, while Eynesbury Church, four minutes’ walk away, is open on many days.
Under COVID19 restrictions, as the days shorten and the weather gets colder, we are, unfortunately, no longer able to keep St Neots Parish Church staffed to be open for private prayer. We hope the time will come soon when we can open for prayer and visitors again.
We look forward to welcoming you into our churches to worship with us or visit soon.
Please contact our Parish Office @ [email protected] or telephone 01480 370312 if you need any further information.
