Welcome to the webpage of the church of St Mary Magdalene, Whipsnade
Our next service is Patronal Festival at 6.00pm on Sunday 21st July
The Church of England parish church of Whipsnade, also known by its unusual dedication to St Mary Magdalene, stands at the heart of this famous and beautiful village, and is the main spritual centre for the community. It is normally kept open for visits and prayer in daylight hours. As an 'ancient' church building, ours is relatively young: the church tower is the oldest part, dating from the sixteenth century, while the central part of the building is Georgian. At the opposite end to the tower the chancel is Victorian. We're particularly proud, after decades of campaigning and fundraising, to have a 21st-century addition at the south western corner, containing a servery, toilet and meeting room.
We are very pleased to announce that the new "roadway" across the green is complete and open
Services are usually held every Sunday at 9.00am. Please check the list of services on the main church page.
'A Rivers of Music' concert was held in the church on Sunday 3rd March. The event was planned and organised by Robert Kendrick. Please see images below.
