Planning your Visit

Welcome to St Botolph's 


The following information is specifically for those planning a first visit, so that you know beforehand what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

Our services are at St Botolph's church in the centre of Cambridge (details below). On Sundays these always start at 11.00am.  We suggest planning to arrive 10-15 minutes early, especially if driving as parking spaces are in short supply in central Cambridge, and to find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by a sides person who will help you find somewhere to sit and will give you a hymn book and a prayer book, or a service sheet.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the service and we hope very much that you will stay for a chat. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access. Please let the sides person know on your arrival and they will help you. Please note access to the toilet requires a step.


The service

Our Sunday service begins at 11.00am and follows the Book of Common Prayer.  On the first, third and fifth Sundays we have a Sung Eucharist.  On the other Sundays we have Mattins with Holy Communion.  There will be organ music before the service and the bell will ring for about five minutes before the service starts.  All services will have a sermon from the Rector or a visiting preacher.  These usually last for around 10-15 minutes.  The choir plays a part in all services, leading hymns and sung elements of the service.  The service ends with an organ voluntary.  Many people sit and listen to this for five minutes or so.  Others will start to congregate around the tea and coffee table for a chat.

What about children?

We welcome children of all ages and no one should be embarrassed if young ones cry or older ones wander around.  We do not have a Sunday School so children remain in the service with their parents.  There is a carpeted area in the side chapel which is available for parents and small children who want to step away from the main church for a while.

Getting in touch

Helping with services and the life of the church

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make our services run smoothly, please let us know.  We are always looking for help with anything from flowers, to refreshments, to opening the church for visitors during the week and a hundred and one other tasks that keep the life of the community.
