The Vicar of the Parish of Madingley is the Rev’d Michael Bigg who was  instituted and inducted by the Bishop of Ely on Sunday 13th September 2020.  The two parishes of Madingley and Girton are joined ‘in plurality’ which means that Michael also serves as the rector at St Andrew’s Church in Girton.

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.

Our usual pattern of services includes a weekly Sunday service (Common Worship) of Holy Communion with Morning Prayer on the first Sunday.  Sunday services start at 10.30am. A weekday service of Morning Prayer is said every Thursday at 9am.  Visitors are always welcome.
