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.

Annual church meetings on Tuesday 23 April

St Mary's 750

In 2020 it will be 750 years since the parish of Rickmansworth came into being with Richard de Chelveston recorded as its first Vicar. There's already a lot of interest in how we can mark this special year and your contributions will be most welcome. Speak to Buzz Coster if you'd like to help and be part of the fun.

New members needed for the editorial team of our church magazine

New editor(s) urgently needed for LINK

After 20 years, one of our regular editors is stepping down from the team leaving the remaining members very short-handed. Our church magazine is an important part of our mission and the way in which we serve our whole community so we'd be really sorry if we had to cut back its publication in any way. Please consider whether or not this is something with which you may be able to help. The experienced team shares the workload, taking it in turns to typeset the issues and one vital member of the team is our trusty photocopier in the church office - no more hand-collating and stapling for LINK!

Our vision and goals

Let us pray...

A prayer for July
Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity: keep us steadfast in this faith, through Jesus your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen



We are committed to ensuring that all those who come into contact with our Church have a safe and positive experience. Find out more about our safeguarding policies...
