St Mary the Virgin is the ancient parish church of Lewisham and a vibrant, living Christian family today. Our life and worship is centred on the Eucharist, the Bread of Life for all Christians. Here we celebrate and receive the love and presence of God in Jesus Christ. St Mary’s has shared God’s love with the people of Lewisham for over 1000 years – we continue to do this today in new and creative ways. We celebrate the strengths of this community and we shine God’s light in places of darkness.
Lewisham’s oldest building is now open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10.00 until 2.00pm . Our volunteer Day Stewards will be pleased to give you any assistance.
If you have an i-phone or tablet click on this icon when you visit to use our interactive Heritage Trail. This will give you background information about the building, it’s history and many of it’s monuments.
We are a diverse and inclusive community and we work to link our faith to practical action and the needs of God’s world. We are also good at celebrating life together!
As an Anglican church, St Mary’s enjoys modern catholic worship, with a sense of mystery and awe, beauty and fun.
We believe in an enquiring faith open to reason and challenge.
