About our church

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 Priest-in-Charge is Rev'd Dr Mandy Maxwell, and our Associate Priest is Rev'd Christine Barrow.  A weekly Sunday service is held  at 11.00am (Common Worship) and is usually that of Holy Communion or occasionally Morning Prayer.  Visitors are very welcome.

The church is open during the day.  Please feel free to visit it for a service or privately at other times. You could also take time to enjoy the surroundings: some of the Hall grounds are open to the public for walking and there is a restaurant at The Three Horseshoes not far from the church.

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 take place on Sundays at 11am. Everyone of whatever age is sure of a warm welcome. The service is usually a Eucharist in modern language, [Common Worship], with an occasional service of Morning Prayer.



  • “My Ways are not Your Ways.”

    Rather than a series of books showing us the rules for living good lives, the Bible reveals God’s remarkable, and to us illogical, choices when selecting those who will become leaders and highly influential people in the history of mankind.

  • From Slavery to Sanctification

    If we find it hard to be accepted by God just as we are — justified — the next challenge is to recognise that we are called to be made holy — sanctified — through growth in love.

  • Justification By Faith

    18th August 2017

    We are so used to earning the experience of being valued by others, that we apply that approach to our relationship with God. But is that what God asks of us?
