St Mary’s and All Saints Church, Putney Common form the Parish of Putney Team Ministry, part of the Diocese of Southwark in the Church of England.
At St Mary’s we are a very mixed group of people. We are an inclusive church, welcoming all without exception, irrespective of gender, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or church background.
What we share is a common desire to grow towards God. We understand God to be above all revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Together we seek to grow in faith, in understanding of God and in service of our fellow human beings, recognizing that they, like us, are made in the image and likeness of God.
We don’t of course always get it right! But we share the journey together through sharing encounter with God in the Eucharist and sharing in worship. You are most welcome to come along and see what you make of us.
The Church is open 7 days a week for personal prayer and reflection usually from 9 am to 6 pm, as is Putney Pantry, the cafe in the Brewer Building, the community space adjacent to the church.

St Mary’s Church now has a hearing loop available for the front stalls in front of the Altar on the ground floor and also for the pews on the balcony upstairs, please set your hearing aids to the T position
We also have a defibrillator [a machine that uses an electric current to stop any irregular and dangerous activity of the heart’s muscles] on site here in the Brewer Building on the wall next to the ‘pulpit display’ opposite the lift in the lobby to the Parish Office.
Should you need to use it simply take it off the wall and open the lid, it will speak to you and give very clear and concise instruction for use from there.
