St Peter’s, Duxford

We are a friendly church in the village of Duxford.

Our Sunday Services happen at 8am on the third Sunday and 10am on the fourth sunday

St Peter’s, Duxford

Duxford is the biggest of the three villages, with links to the world of industry thanks to the biggest local employer, the Huntsman chemical works, and a nationwide reputation because of the Imperial War Museum’s aviation collection, housed just on the other side of the M11 motorway.
These two features are connected. The factory began its life making specialist glues for military aeroplanes just before the Second World War, so there’s a good chance that many of the aircraft that swoop low over the village on the museum’s Air Days are in fact held together with Duxford’s own adhesive. Spitfires and Lancasters are a normal sight in the sky here, not to mention a selection of jet fighters, seaplanes and biplanes. On summer Saturdays there’s always at least one historic plane buzzing patiently around above the treetops.
All the same, it’s a peaceful place to live, with an atmosphere of contentment and an easy, accepting outlook. There are good amenities and a friendly mix of people, catered to by three different pubs, the Plough, the Wheatsheaf and the John Barleycorn. Young families are attracted here by the reputation of the C of E Community Primary School, which doubles at the weekend as the venue for the celebrated Duxford Saturday morning music workshops. The bowls club, the Duxford History Group and the allotment society are all well supported, and the first team of Duxford Utd Football Club has just failed by a whisker to achieve promotion.
St Peter’s Church is one of the focus points of the community. It’s the place for village concerts, and where the school choir sings. It’s the place where we celebrate births and marriages, and remember the dead. Outside, it’s a 12th century building of limestone and flint; inside, it’s a neat and cosy space, decorated with Arts & Crafts mosaics.

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.
