St Mary’s Church
(Official dedication: the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Who we are
The interests of the village church on a day-to-day basis are represented by the Parochial Church Council (PCC). The current members of the PCC are: Rev. Nick Evans (Rector); Sarah Hoskins (Churchwarden); Belinda Oakley-Holton (Deputy Warden & Minutes Secretary); Denise Dodman (Treasurer); Roland Kingham; Carol Morgan and Nigel Richards.
What we do
The village church stands at the heart of our community and has been the centre of Anglican worship in the village for hundreds of years. People from Moulsoe have worshipped on this site since at least the 13th century and generations of village residents have also been baptised, married and buried here. The PCC is responsible for organising services and for the upkeep of the church, also for fundraising activities, as the church does not receive any funding from either central government or from the Church of England HQ.
We hold two services most months – on the second and fourth Sundays, mostly at 11am (note that the fourth is not always the last Sunday). Service details are displayed on the noticeboard in the lay-by near the church and in the church porch as well as here on this site. Services are followed by tea/coffee, biscuits and chat; everyone is welcome!
Harvest Thanksgiving service on the evening of Sunday 11th October at 5 pm.
Social distancing measures will apply:
- Face masks must be worn.
- Please maintain distance from other people – alternate pews have been ‘blocked off’ already
- No individual group within the congregation may comprise more than six people (other than a household bubble)
- Hand sanitiser and wipes are available in the church
- Sadly no refreshments will be provided after the service
Weddings, blessings, renewals of vows, baptisms and funerals are also held in the church. Please contact the Parish Administrator at St Peter & St Paul’s Church, Newport Pagnell to discuss. If you are resident within the benefice of Newport Pagnell, Lathbury & Moulsoe, or have a so-called “qualifying connection” to the benefice, you are eligible to marry in Moulsoe church. Thinking about it? Why not also consider the Moulsoe Millennium Hall as a venue for your wedding reception?
If you would like to get involved with the activities at St Mary’s, in whatever way – from flowers, cleaning, fund raising and donations to churchyard maintenance – please contact the Churchwarden.
