St Mary's Church - Stoke Newington, N16
Welcome to St Mary’s Church. We are an Anglican (Church of England) church and seek to offer a warm, open welcome to all who cross our threshold, whether or not Christian spirituality is familiar to you.
As those who seek to walk in the footsteps of Christ, we try to live out his commitment to the poorest and to the marginalised. Through practical action and through an informed spirituality, we attempt to forge an identity that we believe is ‘gospel focused’.
Whoever you are, WE WELCOME YOU!
Dilly Baker, Rector

Seeking Soul Space’: a series of workshops exploring spirituality.
The first is an afternoon of Circle Dance with Heather Williams, in the Old Church, on Sunday, October 22nd. 3 - 4.30pm. Come and join in dances from around the world. Circle dance is a form of social dance that uses simple steps and sequences. No knowledge of dance is needed; just a desire to experience the interconnectedness of movement and spirit.
Heather is a dancer (and scientist), who is keen to make the links between dance and spirituality. She leads the monthly ‘Danced Liturgy' at St James's Piccadilly.
