During the week, St Mary’s is a sanctuary among the busy streets. The versatile interior is much larger than is apparent from outside. You are invited to step in and see and share its splendour. Open to all. There are benches to sit on in the churchyard. The area is tiny, but secluded. The welcome inside the church is always warm.
To bring in income for our work, we let the space. Wedding receptions, private receptions, formal or informal lunches or dinners can be accommodated.
St Mary-at-Hill is suitable for conferences, theatrical rehearsals and productions, choir and orchestra rehearsals, auditions and competitions, major concert performances, recitals and recordings. We own movable chairs, portable staging, an enviable piano and organ and have a splendid acoustic! What is not here can be hired in. To discuss a booking, contact the administrator.
Much of the original church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London (1666), but the walls and frame remained standing. The building has survived two further major fires, and it stood unscathed through the Blitz. Although marked by its experiences, the spectacular interior retains the beauty and grace of Wren's vision.
Our toilets are twinned with toilets in the Congo. Click here to read about sanitation.
