St Mary’s and All Saints Putney Common, forms the Parish of Putney Team Ministry. We are 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, recognising 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.
