St Mary's is a small unspoilt 13thc church, sensitively restored by Caroe in 1903-6 - an oasis of calm is the countryside.  It stands near the centre of our small village, on the edge of a fen island, close to the New Bedford River.  We are a strong though small church community, doing our best to serve the whole village as it wishes and needs, and working closely with Mepal Union Chapel, as well as with the other parishes which which we share our priest - St Martin's Witcham and St Andrew's Sutton.

We welcome you either to our services (1st & 3rd Sundays 8am Holy Communion, 2nd and 4th Sundays 10.30am Parish Eucharist, 5th Sundays joint oecumenical service with St Martin's Witcham and the Union Chapel - phone 01353 778129 for details) - or for the pleasure of a visit.  We keep the church locked, but welcome visitors - please contact the chuchwarden: Mrs Elizabeth Stazicker(01353) 778129, or failing her, Mrs Rosemary Wells (01353) 778620.

Our sister churches are close by.  They are of different sizes and traditions and have different facilities and services at different times.  We value the diversity.  Check their sites ( Witcham, St Martin - and Sutton-in-the-Isle, St Andrew - .
