Time for a clear out!

We have the Annual Fundraisers’ Charity Auction coming up at the beginning of March.  So there’s time to have a clear out and donate any pre-loved but no longer needed items.

No photo description available.




Every 6 years churches have to prepare a new electoral roll (in effect its list of members) from scratch.   This year EVERYONE needs to fill in a new form. It doesn’t matter whether you were on a previous electoral roll.

You can download a form here Application-for-Enrolment-Electoral-Roll-20132-1 or pick up a paper copy at the back of church. Completed forms can be handed to the churchwardens, left in the box at the back of church or emailed to

Completed forms must be returned by 17th March 2019.
The new electoral roll will be published on 31st March 2019 and agreed at the APCM on 14th April 2019.

February at St Mary’s Buckden

We are well into the New Year and back to routine.  All groups and activities have restarted and there is lots going on in the church.  Hopefully something for everyone.

Thanks you to everyone who joined us for the Cleaning Crew on Saturday 2nd February, the church is looking lovely.  Please note that there will be no organised Cleaning Crew in March, but do feel free to pop with your duster during that first week.

St Mary’s chosen charity for November-December is for January-February is MAGPAS    Magpas Air Ambulance brings crucial lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies. Based in Cambridgeshire, their enhanced medical team receives advanced training which allows them to offer procedures and treatments at the scene. They support the ambulance service and give medical care when time is of the essence. This means that the frontline care the team delivers doesn’t just save lives, it helps seriously ill and injured people to return to a good quality of life. Magpas Air Ambulance is not a state-funded service & relies on generous public donations to continue saving lives. Thank you in advance for your generosity. There will be a fund-raising Pamper Afternoon in aid of MAGPAS on Saturday 2nd March at 53 Park Road 2pm – 6pm.
