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

Everyone is welcome to join us as we meet together. To find out about our usual services and events on a Sunday or during the week please see here.

There are often other events going on at St Mary's and special services to celebrate festivals during the year, which all are welcome to. Please see here for details.

Lent at St Mary’s 2017

We mark the beginning of the season with an Ash Wednesday service in the Old Church at 7pm. This will be a eucharist with the imposition of ashes.

Our Lenten theme this year is: ‘Testing Times’:

Why not join a study group and explore these and other questions:

  • What testing times have you been through/going through?
  • How might your faith help you in such times?
  • What sort of testing times are we facing within our communities and more globally?
  • How does our faith speak into these situations?

When:  Mondays, March 6th, 13th and 20th             or         Wednesday, March 8th, 15th, 22nd

Where: 26, Windus Road, Stoke Newington            or         48, Dumont Road, Stoke Newington

Time:    2 - 3.30pm                                                      or          8 - 9.30pm

Step into Meditation:

An introductory course of Christian Meditation will be offered in the New Church on Tuesdays at 10.30 am and on Wednesdays at 8.15 pm., beginning on the 7th & 8th March.

A chance to discover, or re-discover, the prayer of silence and stillness.  There is no advanced technique to be mastered. Anyone can undertake this way of prayer.   The only requirements are a commitment to the practice, and a willingness to accept that you are valuable, and are loved by God.

Each session lasts about an hour, including some teaching, a time of silence, and time for questions in a supportive group.
