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...

An Easter prayer

Let the Alleluias ring out, the trumpets sound; Christ is alive!

Risen Lord, you allowed yourself to be sacrificed for the sake of humanity and you overcame death; and so we rejoice on Easter Day.

Living Christ, may we show that you did not die in vain, by our lives as we try to follow your example of loving our neighbour and our enemy, and by our contrition when we fail. You know that it isn't always easy, Lord, being human, being on this earth. Time and time again we fail to be the people that you want us to be. Give us the commitment and the desire to acknowledge our failings and pray for forgiveness each evening so that we may start each new day afresh; and help us to know through the power of your Resurrection that we are not alone. Amen

A prayer for May
Loving Father, may we be truly thankful for all that you have given us here on earth: for the miracle of new life and all that sustains it; but most of all for the gift of your Son, whose resurrection, ascension and the gift of the Holy Spirit we celebrate this month. With His guidance, may we not only feel gratitude and love in our hearts, but also show them in our lives by continuing your Son's work on earth. In the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ, 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.
