Changes to Worship during COVID-19

It is with deep regret that we have to close St Mary Magdalene Church for all services for the first time in hits history due to the Coronovirus. The church will remain closed for worship until further notice.

Unfortunately this means there will be no Sunday service, or weddings or baptisms at this time. Funerals can only take place at the crematorium or the graveside, and only the closest relatives will be allowed to attend. Emergency baptisms may take place if a persons life is threatened, but only at home or in the hospital.

For further information, look on this website, or email the Rector at: You can also phone the Rector at: 020 84657307.

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close in London

London is seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Diocese of Southwark are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life. See: or scan this QR code:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
