Church of St Helena and St Mary

Bourn church, dedicated to Saints Helena and Mary, was built in the 12th century, replacing a wooden church that was built after the Norman Conquest. It is a cruciform stone building with a square tower supporting an octagonal twisted spire. It has eight bells.

The church is ministered by the Papworth Team Ministry
