Threads through Creation.  You remember Mary recommended visiting this exhibition whilst it was on tour last year.  If you missed it you have another opportunity as it is coming to Ely cathedral from 14th June to 23rd July.  From the website:  Threads through Creation is a spectacular sequence of 12 huge textile panels.  It’s an exuberant retelling of the creation story in the book of Genesis, a retelling which many visitors will find both moving and breathtaking.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

Here's what to expect if you're coming to Church on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at one of our three Churches (details here) for our main Sunday Service, which starts at 10am. 

We usually serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the service.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Duxford and Ickleton Churches have a toilet.

Children are more than welcome to all of our 10am services, however the services on the first and second Sunday of the month in Ickleton are more children orientated.
