St Mary Le Strand
Our three missions are: 1. A place of sanctuary 2. A public democratic space 3. A place of engagmk
ABOUT US: 

As a local church, we have three missions which are interconnected; Christian, Public and Cultural.

 

We consider ourselves a Sanctuary with a vision of welcome, worship and wellbeing, underpinned by the values of Respect, Trust, Positivity, Teamwork, Service, Inclusivity.

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

St Mary le Strand is an inspirational and peaceful place for Christian worship. We are proud that it is an inclusive church where we welcome and serve everyone. We celebrate every person and don’t discriminate on grounds of race, identity, gender, or sexuality. We are truly ‘open to God and open to all’. 

 

The vision for the Church is for it to be a sympathetically restored and redeveloped, with a renewed mission and ministry, at the heart of the regenerated Strand-Aldwych district. It will transform into a place that is relevant to the 21stC, maximising on space and presenting flexible and up-to-date facilities, attracting new audiences and ensuring that the Church can be accessed and enjoyed by everyone. 

OUR VALUES: 
Respect, Trust, Positivity, Teamwork, Service, Inclusivity.
THINGS WE ARE PROUD OF: 
We are proud of this beautiful inspiring building, the acoustics are excellent for concerts and its ceiling is like no other. Simon Jenkins believes it to be the ‘finest 18th church building’,
WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN OUR PEOPLE: 

We are looking for people with an interest in heritage, music, public engagement and enthusiastic volunteers to help us tell stories of the church in different ways.

 

 

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT: 

We are different because we are at the start of re-launching this 300 year old church with a major restoration project in this new pedestrianised area.
