St Mary Magdalene Church is part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Southwark. A church has been on the present site for over 1000 years! Woolwich is in S.E. London, and is a historic town of approximately 25,000 people. Our church is named after one of Jesus’ closest followers, Mary Magdalene. Central to our mission is: ‘Faith, Hope and Love’. We consider ourselves to be in the centre of Anglican tradition and try to reach out to and serve all the peoples of Woolwich.

During the pandemic, we are having our Sunday services online. Click here to join us on Sunday or any day of the week. We look forward to you joining us. If you would like to be emailed once a week to help you stay in touch, please email the Rector at

Usually the Sunday Service is at 10.00am every week. You are very welcome to join us on any Sunday. Children are very welcome to attend our services, and if they are between the ages of 4-11 years they can attend the Sunday School as well. On the third Sunday of each month, we also have a Family Service, which is suitable for children and people of all ages. Services are taken by the Ministry Team, which is led by the Rector. Music is a mixture of both traditional and modern styles, and worship is a mixture of both formal and informal approaches. At the end of worship, we usually have a time for light refreshments, which gives people an opportunity to talk to one another and get to know each other. Both children and adults are welcome to attend St Mary’s Church. Children should be accompanied by a responsilble adult at all times.

As a church, we take safeguarding of children, vulnerable adults and domestic abuse seriously, and, if you have any concerns, you can access our Diocesan Safeguarding Policy here. Our parish safeguarding officer is Mrs Louise van der Valk, who you can email at Click here for the page on this site where you can find our parish safeguarding policy.

Take care and stay well!


Dear Friends, thank you for hopping onto the web site of St Mary Magdalene Church, London. Here in England we are now in a new one month lock down, in the hope of getting the pandemic under control again. The Bishops have asked us to pray for everybody during this time, and I hope you can do this. As we are in lockdown, we will not be meeting in church, so Sunday services are cancelled until the 6 December. Instead we will have a weekly online service on this web site. This will go online every Sunday morning, so this would be a good time to go through the service. The service is a mixture of recording and streaming, and is quite interactive, just like it would be in church. Each online service will stay on this website all week, so you can follow it any time. To follow our online service each week please click here . We hope you enjoy joining us. And please take care of yourself during this month.

Wishing you a happy Advent!
