Introduction

    St. Mary Magdalene, Woodborough

St Mary Magdalene Woodborough is a much-loved church, which is very popular for weddings and baptisms, and the churchyard is the chosen resting place for many residents and families who previously lived here or had connections to Woodborough.

There are close links with Woodborough C of E School, who regularly use the Church for worship and on these occasions (pre-Covid) there was standing room only.

The churchyard at St. Mary Magdalene features as a part of many walks and its changing seasons are enjoyed by all.

There are usually two church services a month and you would be most welcome to join us, see below for times and details.
