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 September
We give thanks for the good times of summer: its long days and warmth, flowers, fruit and vegetables and holidays to enjoy, and we look forward to fresh mornings, dew on the grass and blue, blue skies – and later to the rich colours of Autumn.
September is a time of new beginnings; as the natural world changes, so may our lives. We pray especially for young people changing schools or classes, leaving home to go to university or starting work – and for those who have not yet found jobs.
And we pray for ourselves and each other. While Christ's sacrifice on the Cross is the key to forgiveness that enables us to start each day anew, may we use times of the year to take stock of our lives, ready to move on as God directs. Amen
A prayer for August
Ever-loving God may we be aware of your presence and your protection on our journeys in life, however we travel and wherever we go, near or far, especially when the going is tough, the weather stormy or our means of transport seems fragile. May we take delight in visiting new places, meeting different people and exploring fresh ideas and may we return home refreshed and reinvigorated for the days ahead. Amen
