Sunday and Weekday Services

Sundays

the 9:15 @ St Mary’s is a new, post lockdown service where children and adults worship, pray and learn together. The service lasts about 40 mins, often makes use of Godly Play and about once a month focuses on a simple eucharist. A warm welcome awaits us all as we join together for the 9:15 @ St Mary’s! If you have any questions or want to find out more, please email Rev’d John at [email protected] or Nikki at [email protected]
 

The Parish Eucharist takes place every Sunday Morning at 10.30 am to which all are welcome!

There is also an Evening Eucharist at 6pm (Caritas) which has a more reflective mood.

Weekdays

Morning Prayer takes places at All Saints’ on Putney Common every weekday at 9.15 am for about half an hour.

A Midweek Eucharist takes place at St Mary’s every Wednesday at 12.30pm.

Prayer - Breathing Space & Spiritual Backpacking

Breathing Space has not resumed since lock down.  It used to meet in the lovely candle lit Sanctuary at St Mary’s on Tuesday evenings from 9.30pm, when doors would be closed at 9.45pm and meditation began, with a short prayer, 20 minutes’ silence, finishing at 10.15pm.  We take the silence home with us as we end our day.  Do join us for this very different prayer experience.  You would be most welcome.

Community Run Classes:

Alice Crawford’s Adult Ballet Class

A beginner / intermediary ballet class taught by Senior Soloist, Alice Crawford from the English National Ballet.

All ages and abilities are welcome.

From an article with Kate Miranda at Putney Time & Leisure:

“I am touring White Lodge with Alice Crawford, who joined The Royal Ballet School in 1983 at the age of 11 and graduated to join the English National Ballet in 1990. She went on to become a senior soloist with ENB and retired in 2005 to teach floor barre to injured ballerinas. Alice was known for Clara in The Nutcracker and was named one of Princess Diana’s favourite ballerinas (Princess Diana was ENB’s patron). She lives in Putney with her family and last visited White Lodge for a reunion several years ago. Darcey Bussell was student a few years ahead of Alice and many of their friends now teach here.”
