A Church for the Whole Community

We continue to monitor the levels of Covid infection and make decisions in accordance with the best public health advice. If you join us in person, we ask that you wear a face mask. We will continue to live-stream our 10.30am Sunday Service to our Facebook page for those who are unable to join us in person.

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 St Mary’s Welcome Centre (located across the churchyard from the church): 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) in the Welcome Centre and we live-stream Morning Prayer (Monday to Friday at 8.30am) to our Facebook page.

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, racial justice and a Just Transition to a carbon-neutral London as founding members of Waltham Forest Citizens, our chapter of Citizens UK.

Our ancient building, which is currently being regenerated, is the historic parish church of Walthamstow and its oldest building. People have worshipped here for over 900 years.

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.
