St Mary’s, along with All Saints Putney Common, forms 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 of all ages, varied ethnic origins and different life circumstances, but what we share is a common Christian faith and a wish to grow towards God as revealed through 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, knowing ourselves forgiven by the God who loved us so much that he sent his Son into the world for our sakes.
We are an inclusive church, in the Liberal Catholic tradition, welcoming all without exception, irrespective of gender, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or church background and you are most welcome to come along and see what you make of us or, if you’d like to find out more, fill out the form ‘Are you new to the Parish?’ at the bottom right of this page, and we’ll come back to you.
The Church is open 7 days a week for personal prayer and reflection, usually between 9 am and 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 have started an instagram account for the parish.
You can follow it @PutneyPilgrim. The current theme is thankfulness, if you would like to contribute to taking care of the account for a week with your own ‘week of thankfulness’ please email: Laurafawcett@parishofputney.com
