Parish of Walthamstow
St Mary’s is the ancient parish church of Walthamstow, but works closely with two other Anglican churches in the area. Together, St Mary’s, St Gabriel’s and St Luke’s make up the Parish of Walthamstow.
All three churches are governed by the Parochial Church Council (PCC) of the Parish of Walthamstow, composed of representatives from the three churches. The PCC makes strategic and financial decisions for the Parish.
However, the three churches largely make their own day-to-day decisions, and each retains its own individual church culture and ministries while working together wherever possible. The Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of Walthamstow is the registered charity name of St Mary’s, St Gabriel’s and St Luke’s.
