Welcome to St Mary’s Church

We're glad you're here! This page will give you some helpful information about our Sunday services. It will give you an idea of what to expect when you visit and some practical information.
St Mary’s is a Church of England charismatic evangelical church. Our vision is to see every person and every place saturated with God. We long to see revival and to see the transformation of our community, as people encounter God and discover the adventure of His kingdom. 


When and Where

Sunday worship is restarting at St Mary's in a phased way, starting with Revive Sundays: three one-hour services throughout the day with social distancing and limited numbers. It would be really helpful if you could email the Church Office, or call 020 8508 3643,  to let us know which service you would like to come to so that we can make sure there is space for you. Our service times are:

Common Worship - 9am
Family Service - 11am / 5pm

Our car park is open for use to those using the St Marys grounds.   Public car parks and road-side parking is available in the nearby streets. Loughton Tube Station is only a 7 minute walk away. Just walk up Station Road and turn right when you get to the High Road.  See Contact Us for more details on parking. 

What to expect

When you arrive you will be greeted by a member of our Host team and they will help you find your seats. There are hand-washing stations on entry and exit from the building. In accordance with current Government guidance, face coverings are encouraged as a way of showing love to those who are more vulnerable to Covid-19, but they are not mandatory. The Host team will also be able to help you with any questions or concerns you may have about your visit. There will be toilets available during the services.

NB: There is no dress code at St Mary’s. Come as you are. We are informal. 


Children & Young People

If you have children with you, they are very welcome among us. We normally have age-related groups and activities for children of all ages, although due to the current restrictions we will all be staying together for our services for the time being.  Our ministry with children and young people is called ignite.


Welcome Desk

If you have any questions or would like to find out more about the church, please speak to any member of the clergy or one of the Host team.


Life Groups

Life Groups are where people from the church meet together during the week often in each other's homes. We encourage new people to get connected in one of the many Life Groups that meet
around Loughton and beyond. 

To find out more about joining a Life Group please speak to one of the Host team or contact the church office.
