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.

Community Summer Tea Party - 23 June

Community Summer Tea Party: Sunday 23 June

Lots of help is being sought for this community event so please sign up to help where you can. There's a list at the back of the church. We're particularly on the lookout for entertainment - any thoughts or ideas, folks?


Workshop: From cradle to...

From cradle to...

A key strand of our Mission Action Plan is to look more closely at the work we do with the 300 or so young people with whom we have contact each week. The Diocesan Children's Advisor will be leading a workshop on this area of church life and helping us plan how we might develop this work. The workshop will be on Saturday 13 July from 10.00am-12.30pm and is open to everyone.


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!
