A warm welcome from your Church of England, St Mary’s Church, Kennington.
Whether you have come to this website to find out more about our beliefs and services or just to book a hall, we hope you will look around the site.
There is lots going on at St Mary’s, from traditional church services to Film Club. We have drop ins, playgroups, Messy Church, cafe style church and much, much more.
If you would like to find out more, but find the idea of going to church for the first time on your own a bit daunting, let us know and we will pair you up with a ‘Buddy’. They will meet you outside the church, sit with you throughout the service and let you know what is going on. We can also arrange this for the other events we hold.
We have all been to church for the first time. For some of us it was as a small child, for some it was a long time ago and for others it was more recent. You are welcome to join us and we look forward to meeting you.
