St Mary’s strives to be an inclusive Church
that lives the gospel of Jesus Christ:
- as proclaimed in the holy Scriptures
- as embodied in the traditions of the Church
- and unfolding in our day to day experience
of following Christ.
Where ever you are on your journey of faith, we welcome you.
FOR MANY CENTURIES the top of Church Hill has been recognised by local people as a ‘holy place’, but it has been used as a site of Christian worship since the end of the 11th century. In 1080, the Benedictine monks of the Abbey at St Albans founded a small chapel to serve the community under the jurisdiction of the Abbot of St Albans, and dedicated it the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. Since then, each generation has played a part in shaping this beautiful building (the oldest in the London Borough of Barnet) whose ancient stones have been hallowed by centuries of prayer and silence.
Today, visitors to St Mary’s continue to be refreshed and inspired in this sacred space, and often experience a strong sense of God’s presence and peace.
