We are a community of Christians, part of the Church of England and the global Anglican Communion, whose spiritual home is the ancient Parish Church of Battersea. A church has been situated on the bank of the River Thames here since the 8th Century.
As a community of Christians we are diverse and inclusive. We welcome people of all backgrounds irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, politics and religious background. We seek to serve our neighbours that together we may know more of the love of God in Christ.
We offer you a warm welcome at any of our services or activities.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: On Monday 27th November, St Mary's will be without a parish priest, as Canon Simon Butler leaves to take up a new appointment in Guildford. During the vacancy, please contact the Parish Office for any information or help you may require. If you need to speak to a priest urgently, please contact the Area Dean of Battersea. The Church Wardens lead the parish until the new Vicar is appointed and you can contact them via the Parish Office as well.
