Welcome to Shingay Churches

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

Welcome to our churches

Hello everyone.  I’m pleased to say we will be back in the church buildings this week.

The rules remain the same as when we were last in the buildings, so I’m afraid face coverings and social distancing remain mandatory. Singing by the congregation is not permitted. Extra emphasis has been placed on avoiding mingling after services.  I know this is difficult, as for many people (I include myself) this is the first instinct at the end of a service.  If it is very important to speak to someone, please do so outside, where it is safer.  Thank you for your understanding on this.  

For those who are not able to attend the buildings, for reasons of health or instructions to shield for whatever reason, we are aiming to either record a service, or when possible, livestream it. Please go to 
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaPgJsIdd6fNeseS5MfMC_w and it should appear as the latest recording on there.  

Forthcoming services are:

9.30amLitlingtonFamily Service

Abington Pigotts, Guilden Morden and Steeple Morden churches are open during the day, from approx. 10am to 4pm for individuals to enter for prayer.  Litlington church is temporarily closed whilst work is carried out to install kitchen and toilet facilities.

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
