Welcome to Shingay Churches

We are a small group of friendly country parishes in
South Cambridgeshire

Welcome to our churches

Sadly, we are once again in lockdown and current Government guidelines mean that services are suspended due to the Covid19 pandemic.

This coming Sunday, 22nd November, the service using Zoom will be at 10am (note earlier than last Sunday). Please email shamuswilliams@waitrose.com to receive details to join this service. This will be a service marking the feast of Christ The King, which always falls on the Sunday before Advent Sunday.  This is the Sunday also sometimes called “Stir Up Sunday”, the traditional day to make your Christmas puddings.

Looking ahead, there will be an enjoyable Christmas Service using Zoom on Sunday 13th Dec at 3pm, which will be primarily for children.

There will be viewer participation so please email The Revd. Ann Bol to ensure you receive the required resources well in advance and are sent the zoom link for the service: RevAnn801@gmail.com or phone 01223 871058 Do please spread the word amongst families with children about this service.  

Abington Pigotts, Guilden Morden, Litlington and Steeple Morden churches are open during the day, from approx. 10am to 4pm for individuals to enter for prayer.  

Very small scale simple funerals, with restricted numbers permitted to attend are also now allowed.

The Shingay Group of Parishes consists of St. Michael and All Angels, Abington Pigotts; St. Catherine’s, Litlington; St. Mary the Virgin, Guilden Morden; St. Peter and St.Paul, Steeple Morden; St. Giles, Tadlow; and All Saints’, Wendy and Shingay. We are situated in the South West corner of Cambridgeshire and are part of the Diocese of Ely of The Church of England.

All six parishes of the Group have their own organizations, Parochial Church Councils and so forth, but we operate as a Team of Parishes wherever we can, and good friendships have been built across the villages through our meetings together, and our regular monthly worship together in one of the six churches. In normal circumstances we try to have a service in each of the six churches on three Sundays of the month, and come together for worship on the remaining Sunday.

Full details of services are printed in Prospect magazine, which is normally delivered each month to homes in the parishes. Due to social restrictions, delivery is not being made at the moment. Prospect is available on-line by clicking here
