Due to lockdown our buildings have been closed, and all church services suspended, but as a church we are still active in prayer, worship and care for each other. We continue to explore new ways of supporting church members and the wider community. Our vicar, Rachel Rosborough, has developed resources to help us worship and pray at home and there are services held on a Sunday via Zoom. Please visit our Prayer & Worship Page for more information.
The Government has recently announced that places of worship may begin to open again and some services may resume. This can only be done in line with other guidance about social distancing, hygiene measures etc.
For the remainder of July and August, the church building in Grantchester will be open for private, individual prayer on Wednesday afternoons between 3pm and 7pm. Sunday services will continue on Zoom each Sunday at 10.30am and we encourage people to make this service a priority if they can. However, there will also be a short communion service at 9.00am on Sunday 19th July, Sunday 2nd August and Sunday 16th August. Due to social distancing measures, space is limited and so if you are planning to come to this service, please email our vicar, Rachel, so that we can keep an eye on numbers. The service will be a said communion service, with certain restrictions in line with government and Church of England guidance.

Grantchester Parish Church is a friendly, traditional and welcoming church in a rural setting on the edge of a phenomenal city
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.
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.
