Harvest on Sunday 17 October 2021

We’re looking forward to celebrating our Harvest Festival this Sunday 17 October at both our 9am and 10.30am services. As in past years, we’ll again be collecting non-perishable food items for Mill Grove Children’s Home and Christian Kitchen. This year, as part of our Harvest celebrations, we’re also inviting you to bring new hats, gloves […]

Weekly Churchyard Update (13/10)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener  The South Bed is looking ragged now, as the last standing plants continue to be taken out. The Japanese anemones, Cosmos, Symphyotrichum and Chrysanthemum still offer something. Elsewhere, the pot displays are on the cusp of being taken down or put away. This is their last […]

New Monthly Communion Service Starts Today at 2pm

This short service will be held every second Monday of the month at 2pm, and we’ll hold our first monthly service today (Monday 11 October) at 2pm in the Welcome Centre. Today’s service will be led […]

Weekly Churchyard Update (5/10)

By Tim Hewitt, St Mary’s Head Gardener/ Community Gardener Ongoing division, redistribution and propagation in the South Bed is the main work of the week. There are also still areas to strim and mow, if weather allows. This is the time of year to make compost, with lots to go on the heap, but also […]

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.

From 8 September 2021, we are meeting in-person for Vespers (Wednesdays at 7.30pm) in the Welcome Centre, however, we will also live-stream Vespers to our Facebook page and will continue to 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, help people out of debt through our Christians Against Poverty centre, 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.
