The Church of St Mary the Virgin

Little Houghton, Northamptonshire

In 1997 we became part of the United Benefice of Cogenhoe and Great Houghton and Little Houghton with Brafield on the Green.  We belong to Peterborough Diocese of the Church of England.  A list of services across the benefice can be found at

Our Mission:

To proclaim Christ's love in the community and to keep the Church at the heart of village life.

Parish Profile

Every parish is encouraged to draw up a profile giving information about the parish, its people and its surroundings.  We have been asked not to publish our Parish profile here until the Benefice profile is finished, so it will re-appear later.

Welcome to Rev Eddie Smith

Eddie was Instituted by the Bishop and Inducted by the Archdeacon on Sunday 12 October. See the Induction page on the Benefice website.
