About our church

The Parish of Madingley is currently ‘in interregnum’. The Revd Michael Bigg has been appointed to serve as Rector in Madingley and the adjoining parish of Girton. Subject to the current circumstances, it is anticipated that Michael will be instituted and inducted in early autumn 2020. Until that service has taken place our church wardens continue to take legal responsibility for the parish, supported by our ministry team and the Parochial Church Council.

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.

We are very pleased that our regular pattern of services, conducted by the Rev’d Christine Barrow and Lay Minister Miss Susan Rawlings, will continue as usual once the present restrictions have been lifted. Sunday services are currently shared via an emailed weekly service sheet (please contact us if you would like to receive this). The weekly Sunday service (Common Worship) is usually that of Holy Communion or occasionally Morning Prayer starting at 10.30am. Visitors are always welcome.

You will find more detailed information about the church, its people, services, plans for the future, history and ways of contacting us by following the links.

Services

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.  With great regret Madingley Parish Church is, therefore, closed for services with immediate effect.  Updates will be posted regularly on this website.
