Churchyard Update (2/12)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener Last week we set a lot of leaning gravestones right and placed a new welcome stone at the gate. David, one of our volunteers, was instrumental in this, and it was great to have his input. We are getting to the end of leaf-clearing and bulb-planting […]

Advent Study Group on Zoom: Starts 2/12

Join us for an Advent Study Group on Zoom, Thursdays from 8pm-9.15pm, starting 2 December. Each week in Advent, we’ll watch an episode of the BBC’s Nativity series with discussion and reflection afterwards and ending with Night Prayer. It’s all led by our placement curate, Revd Jide Macaulay. Interested in joining us? Email vanessa@stmaryswalthamstow.org for […]

Morning Prayer: Liturgies for Every Season

We’ve created a Morning Prayer booklet with all the liturgies you’ll need for every church season of the year. We say Morning Prayer every weekday at 8.30am on our Facebook page. Morning Prayer Booklet  

First Sunday of Advent

On Sunday 28 November, we’ll celebrate the First Sunday of Advent with three services in the St Mary’s Welcome Centre (our church hall, located across the churchyard from the church): a 9am Holy Communion service led by Revd Vanessa Conant with a sermon from Revd Dave Edmondson; a 10.30am inter-generational service; and a 6pm Advent […]

A Church for the Whole Community

St Mary’s is a diverse and inclusive community learning the way of Jesus and growing in love – a centre of Arts, Prayer and Transformation, and a church for the whole community where all are welcome, always.

Our Sunday Services are in the Welcome Centre, which is our church hall (located across the churchyard from the church): a weekly 9am Holy Communion service (you can help us with Track and Trace by booking here) and a 10.30am service (book here), which we also live-stream to our Facebook page.

We also meet weekly for Vespers (Wednesdays at 7.30pm) in the Welcome Centre and we live-stream Morning Prayer (Monday to Friday at 8.30am) to our Facebook page. Our 2021 Advent and Christmas services will be almost entirely in-person, but due to limited space because of our church building project, we are asking you to book in advance. View all of our Advent and Christmas services here.

We do more than meet on Sundays and Wednesdays: 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 and a Just Transition to a carbon-neutral London as founding members of Waltham Forest Citizens, our chapter of Citizens UK. We also support the night shelter and have been involved with Christian Kitchen for years.

We are a centre for arts and culture in Walthamstow. As home to the St Mary’s Music Hall and the St Mary’s Arts Collective, our arts projects and musical events bring people together, and our £3.37 million Creative Church project, which will break ground in Autumn 2021, will make our building more accessible to the whole community.

Our ancient building is the historic parish church of Walthamstow. People have worshipped here for over 900 years and it’s still the heart of all we do; indeed, worship is something that happens every minute of every day!

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 on the image below 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. Work begins in 2021.
