Church of England Diocese of St.Albans Shefford

About Us

Although our church dates back to the 14th century, you will find that we are proud to live and worship with our hearts and minds firmly in the 21st century.

Our parish church is very easy to find (if you have a satnav, simply enter our post code, SG17 5DD). We enjoy a prominent position right at the heart of the vibrant and picturesque market town of Shefford in Bedfordshire - just look for the tower.

Part of the United Benefice of Meppershall & Shefford, we aim to offer you the widest possible range of opportunities for worship, friendship, spiritual development, healing and growth, family friendly activities, and social/cultural events to suit all ages and tastes.

Whether you're new to the area and looking for somewhere to put down your spiritual roots, visiting Shefford, or you just think "there's got to be more to life than this", come and spend some time with us and see what being part of a truly open Christian community can add to your life.

Interested, but not sure how to take the first step? Yes, most of us have felt like that at some time or another... all we can suggest is that you take a look at the "what's on" section of our website (www.sm3a.org.uk), find something that interests you, and have a go...

Whatever you choose, we'll do our very best to make you feel welcome!

Please come along or get in touch, and why not 'Like us' on our Facebook community page to stay in touch?

God bless you. Rev. Roni Goodman
