Christmas Eve – Christmas Day Services

A quick reminder of all our services this Christmas. There’s lots to choose from.




December at St Mary’s Buckden

Advent is almost upon us and the first weekend in December is promising to be a very busy one.  We have the Christmas Tree arriving with it’s personalised baubles, St Mary’s 1st Christmas Wreath Festival, Buckden Christmas Market and light switch on, Children’s workshop, Children singing and more.  And that’s all in addition to our special Advent Service at 11am on Sunday when the travelling cribs set off on their journey around Buckden.  Come and join us this weekend.

Next Wednesday it’s the St Mary’s Christmas Coffee Morning at Buckden Village Hall.  Join us for coffee, mince pies and fun
