St Mary Magdalene Church

‘Growing together in worship – reaching out with Christian love’

Part of a group of parishes which includes Caldecote & Denton, Folksworth, Morborne, Haddon and Elton.

About our Church Community

St Mary Magdalene continues to be an important part of the Stilton community. It provides valuable support and guidance to our youngsters at Stilton Primary School.

In 2016 we welcomed a new Rector, the Rev. Richard Gibbs, Stilton’s 50th Rector in a line which dates back to 1218. Although having the care of five parishes, Richard lives with his wife Sue and three daughters in our rectory. He began his ministry as Vicar in Southport in 2012 and is a keen musician and golfer in what little free time his duties allow!

It’s my intention to spend as much time as I can with people in my parishes as I try to get to know the area and its people. I hope to see you around at our services, garden parties, walks, school assemblies, coffee mornings, parish events and everything else that happens in our villages’

Our Services

(As at 1 March 2021, under Covid-19 mitigations)

The Stilton Group of Churches will remain online for worship until Palm Sunday (28th March). This is in line with the rest of the churches in our deanery. The decision not to open our churches for worship has been a difficult one and much thought and prayer has gone into it. It was not a decision made lightly or hastily. The decision will be reviewed as we approach Holy Week and we will keep you informed.

We will continue to hold services on our Stilton Churches YouTube channel. There are new services every Sunday as well as a midweek service on a Wednesday. Also, if you can please follow us on Facebook to keep updated with what is happening with the Stilton Group of Churches.

These churches remain open for private prayer:
Elton - Sundays and Wednesdays (10am – 4pm)
Folksworth - Saturdays (10am -4pm)
Haddon – every day (dawn until dusk)

Thank you for your prayers, support and patience.

For the most up-to-date details of services, visit the Stilton Group of Churches website, or SCAN, which is distributed to homes across the parish. Our parish newsletter, Church Link, is temporarily suspended during Covid-19 mitigations.
