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 an interregnum since the end of May 2014. During the Interregnum, Newnham and Trumpington have been extremely supportive and have taken responsibility for providing priests for the regular services.  In particular, 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.
