ST MARY’S ONLINE SERVICES
Dear Friends, thank you for hoping onto the web site of St Mary Magdalene Church, London. Now that we are in the New Year we will continue to have weekly online services. Our online services go online early 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.
SERVICES IN CHURCH
Due to the seriousness of the pandemic situation in London at the present time, we have decided to close St Mary’s Church for worship until at least February 2021. Please instead follow our online services, see above. We hope you enjoy them. Best wishes in 2021.
