Candlemas (29/1)

Today (Sunday 29/1) we celebrate the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple – or Candlemas – with two services of Holy Communion as we bless candles as a symbol of Jesus, light of the world.

Three Job Opportunities in the Parish: Apply by 17 February

St Mary’s and the Parish of Walthamstow are excited to advertise three new roles, each of which will help us manage and or promote our buildings and activities as a church and Parish. Please see below for a description of each role, with a full PDF attachment for each job opening that includes details on how to apply alongside a full job specification for each role. Applications for all three jobs must be recevied by 12pm on Friday 17th February 2023.  

Sunday Services: Being Church (22/1)

On 22/1, join us for a 9am service of Holy Communion or for a 10.30am Morning Worship service with children’s groups provided. Revd Vanessa Conant will lead and preach at both services, and we’ll begin a new series exploring ‘Being Church’ with, this week, a focus on worship.

A Church for the Whole Community

St Mary’s is a diverse, inclusive and creative Christian community learning the way of Jesus and growing in love.

From 11 December 2022, our Sunday Services will once again be in our ancient church building: a weekly 9am Holy Communion service and a 10.30am service, which we also live-stream to our Facebook page.

We also meet weekly for Vespers (Wednesdays at 7.30pm), and from 16 January 2023 we are once again gathering in person, every weekday, in St Mary’s ancient building to say Morning Prayer at 8.30am, which we also live-stream to our Facebook page.

We do more than meet on Sundays, Wednesdays, and on weekdays for Morning Prayer: we run confirmation, marriage and faith-exploration courses, work with young people and children, manage an award-winning churchyard (with opportunities to volunteer), and advocate for affordable housing, racial justice and a Just Transition to a carbon-neutral London as founding members of Waltham Forest Citizens, our local chapter of Citizens UK.

Our ancient building is the historic parish church of Walthamstow and its oldest building. People have worshipped here for over 900 years, and in early 2023, our building will be open in the day, during the week, and will feature a Froth & Rind cafe alongside a new Exhibition Space, which will include a permenant history display as well as rotating series of arts and culture exhibitions.

St Mary’s is part of the Church of England and Diocese of Chelmsford and we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and all victims of abuse and vulnerable adults. Our PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practices on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website. Our parish safeguarding officer is Emma Clements; she can be reached at emmaclements655@btinternet.com.

The Creative Church Project

In 2015, an architect’s report indicated we had to make urgent repairs to St Mary’s ancient building. However, as we looked at how we might fund this work, we began to dream bigger and to imagine how we might make St Mary’s building the heart of Walthamstow again, as it was in centuries past.

Click the image to learn more about our plans to open up Walthamstow’s ancient church and oldest building to the whole community with a cafe, gallery space and more. We hope to complete works by late 2022.
