Introducing the Parish
Welcome to your village church! Come on an adventure as we give thanks to God the Father, find rest in Jesus, and serve others in the power of the Holy Spirit. We’re part of a team of 3 churches offering services ranging from the very traditional to the extremely informal; plenty of opportunities to get involved with activities during the week; and the chance to share important life events such as christenings, weddings, and funerals. If you’d like to know more then get in touch, or simply drop in to church – we’re open every day!

Worshipping in church:
- The church building is open every day from 10am – 4pm for private prayer and reflection. Please wear a mask unless you’re exempt, and sanitise your hands on the way in.
- There is now a service in St Nicholas’ Nether Winchendon Church on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 9.30am
- There’s no need to be book, but remember, things will look and feel different:
- The 2m distancing rule remains in place, which limits capacity inside, so please only attend worship if this is your usual church.
- Please wear a mask unless you’re exempt, and sanitise your hands on the way in.
- Seating will be spaced to ensure 2m distance between each household bubble.
- We won’t be able to sing, but we can enjoy listening to music together.
- We are not permitted to talk to each other before or after the service.
