St Mary's is open every weekday morning at 8.30am for Morning Prayer. The church is open Monday-Saturday between 8.30-4pm for private prayer or to light a candle.

St Mary’s Walthamstow reopened in December 2022 after a major restoration by Matthew Lloyd Architects – a project supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. In addition to being a working church, our Grade II* building is now a beautiful heritage venue for concerts, wedding receptions, retreats, meetings, filming, and school and community events.
Fully equipped for sound and AV, and with a renowned acoustic, the main space can also be used for recording. Our smaller vestry rooms are ideal for meetings, away days and workshops. With views over the tranquil and beautiful churchyards, the church offers a peaceful retreat just minutes from Walthamstow Central.
