Due to the Covid 19 virus, we have been exploring 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 is a 11.00am service held each Sunday via Zoom. Please visit our Prayer & Worship Page for more information.
There are also some church services taking place in our building. During October, the church building in Grantchester will continue to be open for private, individual prayer each Wednesday afternoon between 3pm and 7pm. Sunday services will continue on Zoom each Sunday at 11am and we encourage people to make this service a priority if they can. However, there will also be a short communion service at 9.30am on Sunday 4th and Sunday 18th October and at 5.00pm on Sunday 11th and Sunday 25th October. Due to social distancing measures, space is limited 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.
