About our church
The Parish of Madingley is currently ‘in interregnum’. Together with the Parish of Girton, we are seeking and praying for a new parish priest to lead us forward. Our Parish Profile can be found by following this link: https://www.madingleychurch.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Madingley-Parish-Profile-updated-Nov-2019.pdf.
The village of Madingley lies four miles due west of Cambridge and is only slightly larger now than it was in the Domesday Book, with about 200 residents. The church lies just within the gates of Madingley Hall, a fine Tudor house with a modern wing behind it set in beautiful grounds, which is part of the University of Cambridge. The church is an attractive medieval building founded over nine hundred years ago and which draws its regular congregation from the village and surrounding area, including Cambridge.
The Church is currently without a priest in charge. During this ‘Interregnum’ the legal responsibility for the Church lies with the Church Wardens. We are very pleased that our regular pattern of services, conducted by the Rev’d Christine Barrow and Lay Minister Miss Susan Rawlings, continues as usual. The weekly Sunday service (Common Worship) is usually that of Holy Communion or occasionally Morning Prayer starting at 10.30am. Visitors are very welcome.
