June at St Mary’s Buckden

We are now in a vacancy (or interregnum) but, thankfully, it’s going to be a short one. Our new priest-in-charge, Revd David Sheppard, will be licensed on 27th July. We look forward to welcoming Revd David to Buckden and starting this new phase of our journey as a church.

In the meantime, our 11am Sunday services and 9.30am Wednesday Communion will continue as normal with the help of our great team of retired and other local clergy, and lay ministers. Bookings for baptisms, weddings and funerals are still being taken – please contact the churchwardens in the first instance.

For Sunday services, please book in advance by emailing David.pickavance1@outlook.com.  Social distancing measures are still in place, so please comply, always wear a mask in church and remember that numbers are limited. The service will also be streamed via YouTube St Mary’s Buckden.

St Mary’s chosen charity for May-June is Godmanchester Foodbank.
We support Godmanchester Foodbank throughout the year, but for the months of May and June we are trying to give a little extra support and to raise awareness. https://godmanchester.foodbank.org.uk/
