Welcome to our churches
It was very good to celebrate Christmas together again. The outdoor carol services had a lovely atmosphere, and thank you to everyone who made those services possible.
Although we see Christmas decorations taken down quite quickly, the sense of celebration continues in our liturgies, as the season of Epiphany goes right through to Candlemas on February 2nd. As we continue having to be cautious because of the virus, no virus can prevent our thankfulness for the Incarnation. We hope and pray for an end to the pandemic, and easier gatherings by the Spring. Every blessing, Shamus

|10.00am||Steeple Morden||Group Communion for all parishes|
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.
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. Prospect is also available on-line by clicking here
