Welcome to St Mary's

Welcome to St Mary’s, Rickmansworth where Christians have worshipped since the early part of the 13th Century. Our church building is shared by the Church of England and Methodist Church with the two denominations sharing all services and administration, while continuing to nurture all that is best in both traditions. Worship at St Mary’s is open to all Christians, as well as those who would like to be. Please come and visit us. You will find an active, thriving community and a friendly welcome.

Our vision and goals

Let us pray...

A prayer for Pentecost

O Holy Spirit, who has been present in the world since the beginning of time, and who was sent by Jesus to his disciples when he returned to his Father and who is given to each Christian at Baptism, make us more aware of your presence in our lives, help us to heed your voice and be thankful for your comfort and guidance throughout our days.

May our prayers for your kingdom to come spread, with all the others throughout the world, re-energise your Church and equip it to grow. May our Church become your voice, your hands and your heart in Rickmansworth. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen


Candle of Remembrance and PeaceThe Candle of Remembrance and Peace was lit in St Mary's on Monday 4 August 2014 at the service to mark the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Placed by the Book of Remembrance, it will remain alight until 2018.
