St Mary's Church has stood above the Hythe Quay in Maldon for nearly nine hundred years. It's famous lantern acted, for centuries, as a navigational aid to seafarers and the church is still known as the sailors' church today. To spend some time in prayer within its ancient walls is to experience a peace and atmosphere hard to find in today's busy world.

The parish has two clergy, Fr John Dickens and Fr Robert Wiggs and there is still lots going on, with regular activities throughout the week, including Welcome Wednesday and a thriving and celebrated choir.

Our worship centres on the Eucharist, with the main Parish Mass (Common Worship) being 10am on Sunday and a said Mass on Tuesdays at the same time. We also meet together to enjoy the beautiful language of 1662 Evensong every Sunday evening at 6pm. On the first Sunday of the month this is fully choral, with settings of the canticles from the sixteenth century to the present day. The church is listed on choralevensong.org

We look forward to welcoming you to our church.
