Welcome to Hauxton Church!

Haux 2

St Edmund’s is one of the oldest Churches in Cambridgeshire, with many interesting Norman features. The fine Norman Chancel arch is perhaps the most notable but the Church also has a Norman doorway at the southern entrance to the Church and  several  Norman windows. Another interesting feature is the 13th century fresco of St Thomas a Beckett, unusual in not showing the martyrdom of the Saint.

St Edmund’s is a Church at the heart of the community. We have a weekly celebration of Holy Communion on most Sundays and on one Sunday in the month we have a Service of Morning Prayer. We hold an Annual Pet Service in October and an all-age Mothering Sunday Service.

The Church runs a monthly coffee morning in the village hall and  the members of the congregation are  widely involved in pastoral care and  community life.

We are facing new challenges with an expected new housing development of 200-300 new homes on the outskirts of the village but we are sure that the new residents will receive a warm welcome in the Church and village.
