About the Church

St Andrew and St Mary is the parish church of Grantchester. We are part of Cambridge South Deanery, in the Diocese of Ely.

Among our regular worshipers, we have Christians from almost all the main-stream denominations, from Quakers to Roman Catholics. We consider this to be source of strength, not least because our many visitors and tourists can feel more at home in such an eclectic assembly.

Parish Priest

We have been in an interregnum since the end of May. the Bishop has asked The Rev Maggie Guite (Vicar of St Mark’s) and The Rev Andy Chrich (Vicar of Trumpington), assisted by The Rev Marguerite Roberts, and their Curates and other assistant clergy, to provide oversight for Grantchester during the interregnum.  Marguerite will be taking most of the services in June, and they have provided a timetable of services, which they are able to cover for the next six months, and we shall find clergy to help fill in the gaps.  Marguerite is willing to be on call for anyone who needs help, whether it be to talk over arrangements for a wedding, help with a funeral, visits to someone who is ill or in hospital, to rejoice over a new baby, or any other pastoral matters. Her phone number is 01223 359167 .

 

Church Building

The oldest part of the church – the chancel – dates from the 14th century, the nave and tower are 15th century, whilst the south aisle was added in the 1870s. The font is believed to be Norman, and the 17th century pulpit probably came from the chapel of Corpus Christi College.
