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.

You can now make a donation towards the Easter lilies

Easter lilies

If you would like to donate money for the Easter lilies in memory of someone you love, please send your donation to Karen as soon as possible. During the Easter period we will have an Easter Memory Tree at the back of church on which you can hang cards with the names of people you wish to remember.

It's time for the annual review of the Membership Rolls

Review of the membership rolls

If you're not already on one or both of the membership rolls of St Mary's, this is the time to change that and become an 'official' member of our church. This means you can then join the UCC, become a Churchwarden or Steward and vote in the elections. Application forms are at the back of church and need to be returned to the Church Office by Monday 26 March, please. If you've got any questions, please speak to John Glidden, Electoral Roll Officer.

Annual church meetings will take place on Monday 16 April at 7.45pm

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


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.
