With the many restrictions on movement and church services paused for the time being our clergy team will be bringing regular podcast updates to keep you in touch with the whole church family in Chelveston and Higham Ferrers.



St. Mary's is a 13th Century  church unusual in that is has a double nave.

The chancel of one contains the High Altar and the other the Lady Chapel in which the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.

It is a Grade 1 listed building

and in regular use on most days.


A Christening, or Baptism, is the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, godparents, friends, family and the Church. A lifetime of discovering more about love, faith, and hope begins - a wonderful moment to celebrate.


In addition to our Sunday services detailed below there are regular weekday services and also services for special occasions and festivals.


Marrying in church is personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful, just as you want it to be.


The Church of St. John the Baptist dates from the mid 13th Century but had rebuilding and restoration work in 1849.

It is a Grade 2* listed building and is in regular use, both on Sundays and during the week.


When a loved one dies, please contact the Rev. Michelle so that prayers may be said as part of our daily worship.

Lord our God, we thank you for the help you have given us so that we can stand before you, rejoicing in the certainty of faith. We thank you for guiding and leading our lives and for letting us see a goal ahead. Be with us in times of silence when we seem to be alone. Keep us strong and steadfast through all the turmoil of life. Help us to remain unshaken, for you walk with us holding us by the hand. Amen.
