Welcome to our Church!

Welcome to our church. St Mary Magdalene, Great Hampden is a well-loved parish church serving Great Hampden and the surrounding villages. We are made up of people of different ages and backgrounds who enjoy being a part of the life of our church. We come together to give thanks to God every Sunday at 11.15am, and we invite you to join us!

The care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in Church life is the responsibility of the whole Church. Everyone who participates in the life of the Church has a role to play in promoting a Safer Church for all. Here is a link to our Safeguarding Policy, which is renewed every year.
