Welcome to Shingay Churches

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

Welcome to our church

As many are aware, our Rector Shamus Williams will be retiring in September. His last service will be on Sunday August 28th at 11am in St Catherine’s Church, Litlington. The service will be followed by an informal summer lunch in the churchyard during which a presentation will be made to Shamus and Kate.

A warm invitation is extended to all current and past parishioners to attend the service and lunch but we do ask that you let us know in advance that you will be attending to allow us to cater for everyone.

Please let your local church warden know if you will be attending. We require numbers by 15th August.

For information about helping Ukraine, please see page on Diocesan website: https://www.elydiocese.org/about/news-jobs-and-events/news-and-announcements/news/homes-for-ukraine-scheme.php
Also worth looking at is Bishop Dagmar’s address concerning Ukraine:

The wearing of face coverings at services is no longer a legal requirement.  However, please be aware of those wishing to maintain social distancing, and some may also continue to wear a face covering.  Thank you for your understanding.

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
