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.

Autumn 2018



Let us pray...

A prayer for October
Lord open our eyes to the beauty of the world at this time of year and the richness and variety of your gifts to us. May we use them well, sharing them with others and taking no more than we need for ourselves. Let us remember those who produce our food and the difficulties extremes of weather sometimes cause on land or at sea. 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.
