Welcome

A very warm welcome to the website of St Mary Magdalene, Geddington and St Mary the Virgin, Weekley.539588_144047722421724_1741801719_n

I am so pleased that you have decided to view our website.

At St Mary Magdalene, Geddington and St Mary the Virgin, Weekley, we offer a wide-range of services and social events every week to accommodate all ages and preferences, so keep an eye on updates to find out more.

We are a well ordered liturgical Church of England church, and as such we conduct authentic Anglican worship according to modern and ancient tradition. We take seriously our call to be both Catholic and reformed and strive to conduct ourselves in ways that promote unity, inclusiveness and faithfulness. As such our priests and servers wear robes to unite us with Christian tradition past, present and future as well as with the other major denominations. They also act as an aid to help raise our spiritual imaginations towards heaven.

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, gay, confused, filthy rich, comfortable, or dirt poor.

We extend a special welcome to wailing new-borns and excited toddlers.

We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re ‘just browsing,’ just woke up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been in church since Christmas ten years ago.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps.

We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, ‘work too hard,’ don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, who got religion shoved down their throat as kids, or whose parents wouldn’t allow them to talk about God at all. We welcome those who have got lost on their walk and just wandered in, tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts… and you!

May God bless you richly as you explore this website and then bless us richly by adding you to our number.

It may be that you don’t believe in God: nonetheless, HE believes in YOU!
