At St Mary's we meet at 10.15am on Sunday mornings and 7pm Sunday evening. We hope we are people who know our own weaknesses, but we are also those who have been surprised by the love and power of Jesus in our lives. We want to share what we have found with our community, and help each other to live in the love of God, and to live it out more and more.

St Mary's is a local church. Most of our members have their homes in the streets and estates of the parish. Our congregation comes from many races and all age groups. It seeks to be active in the community, and worships in a fairly informal style. We want to be faithful to God, but not 'churchy'.

Many of our members meet in small groups each fortnight, and in some ways these are the living heart of the church. Ask when you come if you want to know more and we can tell you more about these.

We welcome children to all our morning services. There is a crèche for under 3's available every Sunday with a loudspeaker link from the service, athough we encourage parents and children to stay in the service where it is practical to do so. There is Sunday Club for children and young people each week, except on the 1st Sunday of the month which is an all age service. We want children and young people to feel part of what goes on.

Our Mission Statement

“Based on the Bible and through the Holy Spirit, St. Mary's aims to bring glory to God by being and making disciples ready for Jesus return.”

St Mary's is part of a group of three church who comprise the Archway Group. These are St John's Upper Holloway and St Andrew's Whitehall Park.

Our Church School
Our Church School in this parish is St John's Primary School, Pemberton Gardens. Church schools exist for those who feel it is important to have their children educated in an ethos that is sympathetic to the Christian faith.
