A traditional and welcoming church in a rural setting on the edge of a phenomenal city

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.

The congregation welcomes people coming from a wide range of denominations and traditions.

Parish Priest

We have been in a vacancy since the end of May 2014. We are currently advertising for a priest in charge, covering ourselves and St Marks Newnham.  The advert is on the Ely website at http://www.elydiocese.org/article?id=2092 .

The Revd. Marguerite Roberts, the non-stipendiary assistant priest at Newnham, has been supporting Grantchester during this period, presiding at most of our services, providing pastoral care in the parish, and attending PCC meetings. 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.

invitation from St Mark’s

Invitation to all parishioners from St Mark’s Church, Newnham.

St Marks Church, Newnham have asked the Grantchester PCC to extend an invitation to all Grantchester parishioners to join them at their monthly community lunches.

These are normally held on the 1st Sunday of the month at 12.30pm in the hall, behind St Mark’s Church. The dates for the autumn are: October 2 (Harvest Lunch), November 6th and December 4th (Christmas Lunch). This is a cooked 2 course meal so they do need to know numbers in advance. They have a maximum number of 60 and the Christmas Lunch will be full. The cost is £5.
