The Minster Church of Holy Trinity is an highly valued and architecturally significant Saxon Church which is over 1,000 years old. Since that time it has stood as a reminder of God’s presence in our midst and in past centuries acted as a mission centre for the entire area from which clergy would go out and serve neighbouring hamlets and villages.

On the east bank of the River Great Ouse between St Neots and the Offords, Great Paxton extends for a mile or so beside the main rail link, Kings Cross to Edinburgh. At its centre is a pleasant pub, The Bell, and at the northern end of the village is the Church, a highly interesting Saxon building with one of the rare aisled naves of that period still left in this country.
